Today I saw a Physio about a thing unrelated to the MPA. Whilst I was there I thought I would ask him about my foot pain.
He was very interested as he hadn’t heard of Vasculitis and said he would look it up. He said his wife is a GP so will discuss it with her.
(I have raised awareness today!!!)
I started the exercises for Peripheral Neuropathy that I had found on You Tube, 2 days ago. The first night was fine but last night my feet went in cramp again. I had done 5 times the exercises Day 1 but Day two I did them 5 times in the morning and 10 at night.
Anyway he said I had probably done too much and when doing exercises if it hurts to go back a step, not to carry on at that pace because pain suggests trauma but not to give up because it will get the blood supply into the nerves.
He suggested 5 times for two or three days and build up very gradually.
He is also going to check to see if he can find any specific exercises for nerve pain and will tell me next week. I thought that was very kind of him.
Will let you all know what he says if it is useful.
He also said that nerves can heal over time.
My MPA is under control but the left overs are a real pain so I am grateful for any suggestions. I feel at last I have some control now by finding out all I can.
