HI ALL,
My MRI shows tendonitis in my achillies,the tendons at the inside
of my ankle to the heel plus bad P.F. My cam walker bothers my achillies
and heel .After trying 3 types of cam walkers (heel lifts etc.) I'm now in a cast for four weeks. I hope this will help, I have numbness in my 2nd 3rd
and 4th toes Opinions please??

Anthony, I'm sorry you've had no responses to your post. I did read it, but I don't usually say anything unless I think I have something useful to say, and I didn't think I had, so I didn't say anything. I was hoping someone with more knowledge of Achilles tendonitis would be able to help you. I am really very sorry that you're in such pain!

You certainly have my sympathy, but perhaps you should re-post your question on the 'Ask the Foot Doctors Board' toget a more informed response as well as sympathy.

Is your foot feeling any better since you posted? I hope so!

All the best,

Julie

Hi Wendy,
No I never had a nerve conduction test, Does this test check for
restrictions in the nerve ? Did you have this test? What will I need to
tell my doctor?

Anthony

Thank you! Would you like to tell us more about yourself, so we know more about you that just your foot-hurts? Do you have a family? What are your interests? You know the sort of thing I mean.

If you live in New Jersey, you may be near our Dr Zuckerman, who is in Woodbridge. So if you need a new podiatrist, to change to or for a second opinion, that's something you might consider.
