I went to see my podiatrist yesterday to check up on my plantar fasciitis. She said all was good and was about to dismiss me when I mentioned the tingling in my feet and that I need more B12 but the GP won't give it to me. She looked horrified and said but that will lead to long term nerve problems. She asked if I had been sent for spinal assessment and I said no. She was horrified and said right shoes and socks off and on my couch. She then carried out nerve tests on my feet and said the damage had not yet been done as I could feel touch but she was concerned that I could not feel cold. I told her about the mouse trap going off on my foot and not hurting. She has said if it worsens I am to book an emergency appointment with her. She wants to see me in 3-6 months if I have not had to go back before hand and she said if things worsen she will write to my GP. I could have cried - at last someone that listened, believed and understood. That is all I want - understanding, not sympathy or judgement, just someone that will listen and understand and believe me when I say I need further treatment. The tingling in my fingers and dizziness is bad today and the tremors are back but I still have to wait 2 weeks for another injection. A 1 hour walk on the flat on monday really wiped me out.
