I've had a couple of good days due to no neuropathic pain, however the joint pain and stiffness is still there plus I'm starting to have problems climbing my own stairs. This is quite frightening and I'm trying not to worry but I really think I need some urgent tests. It's only 12 steps. Ok going down stairs apart from stiff knees.
I've found there is less of the sharp neuropathic pain if I walk on the inside of my left foot. It hurts, but not as much as if I let the foot fall outwards, however it's a real effort to turn my foot inwards and I'm sore when I've been walking but I can go so much further doing that. Not for the first time I'm wondering if there's something wrong with my feet.
Just a bit scared because this seems to be progressing and quickly. I'm starting to worry there is something really wrong. I sure wish I had a good GP.
Apparently my neurosurgeon has now left and he didn't refer me to another rheumatologist. It's a 10 week wait to see them anyway.
I'm freaked out by odd things I'm starting to struggle to do. Seems unpredictable too. I had a good walking weekend but haven't really been able to bend too well or handle stairsand when I get up in the night to use the loo there's a loss of power getting off the loo in my thighs/knees and surely I shouldn't have to turn my foot at an angle to walk even though it's so nice to be able to walk round a shopping centre as I did on Saturday.
Anyone got any ideas what's going on here and how I can get my GP to understand what is going on here?
