  • Well done Pam! 12 miles is amazing! I wish I could do it with you. I walked 1.5 miles to the village and back today and my feet and ankles hurt so much I don't know where to put them! You should be so proud of yourself, keep up the good work. Keep us posted on how it goes.

  • Karen,I have swollen ankles and burning feet at the mo,three weeks of going up and down a huge old staircase in 400yr old Mairie where I am having an exhibition has really taken its toll on me!,thought I was reasonably fit for a P V person,,ice packs every night soothes,then swell again as soon as I am on feet again!!Good Luck with yours,hoping mine go back to normal when expo finishes.Sallyx

  • I feel for you Sally, painful feet affects everything you do. I am having pain killing injections into my ankles and top foot joints on Friday, which usually helps for around 3 months. Unfortunately they will only do them every six months but 3 months of relief is better than none. Hope the exhibition is going well. Karen x

  • What causes your swelling feet Karen.? Just been for cardio tests,my consultant there was worried the swelling left foot and ankle was D V T,so whisked to another specialist for Doppler scans is a tendon sprain,thank goodness,I was petrified!Does not explain burning toes tho...think that belongs to M P N people.Do you have steroid injections perhaps ?Back to ice packs for me,cannot get even a sandal on left foot!!The intense heat here does not help,but I don't think that is a big problem back home in U K.Best to you ,hope you have relief soon.Sallyx

  • Hi Sally, the swelling is from osteoarthritis, mainly in the top joints on my right foot, but both ankles too. Thank goodness you did not have a DVT, though tendon sprains can be incredibly painful. Yes, they are steroid injections, not pleasant having them right into the joint, but worth it for some relief. Hope you feel better soon. You are right about the heat, it was only 16 deg C here yesterday!! Karen x

  • Karen,Hi there!I did write a reply to you yesterday which suddenly disappeared! How awful for you the osteo arthritis....I noticed you have a stent or two rather,I have one,fitted just after my P V diagnosis,Hydrea and other thinners ,made an artery collapse!Why I wonder do we have other probe as well as an M P N.

  • Was not finished,it went again!! Was going to say,that I take heart Meds as well,I suppose you do too.The swelling foot was discovered by my cardio man as I was strapped into pedals of bike I am tested with ,all of that was ok,then of course the panic stations that I might have D V T,noticed on site that others have suffered them,never gave it a thought.Here ,they are so swift to check anything untoward,expo finished now,was very successful,just need to sleep and sleep.....Keep well as poss Karen,Sallyx

  • We all certainly seem to go through the mill don't we?? Hope you feel better soon, take care x
