I still need to find a doctor to tell me what I need to do from here.
Basically, I guess it is telling me I have moderate neuropathy.
What is causing it?
Could be one of many things I read, weight, low b12, diabetes, which I do NOT have. poor thyroid function. metabolic disorder, which I know I do have.
But those would likely cause neuropathy elsewhere in my body.
Poor circulation, but my choice is broken bone related.
I mean it just makes sense, the same foot I broke 2 years ago.
No problems elsewhere.
So, my next thing is to find a doctor to explain all of this to me and tell me if there is ANYTHING I can do to help it.
From everything I have read, there is no CURE, it is just something one has to learn to try to allieviate, using compression socks, and exercise and diet and good circulation.
But I am going to find an endocrinologist and get tested yet again for diabetes and thyroid disorder, just to rule those out.
Today I am going grocery shopping and get a few things for the house.
and try to get in as much walking as possible while I am out.
So, after a month the results are in and I know no more today than I did then.

    My DH has peripheral neuropathy (due to being diabetic) and it doesn't stop him doing things, it just means he has to be more careful of wounds, and occasionally he gets phantom pains or itches which are very disconcerting.

    I hope you find the advice you need.

    Have a great day
