numbness now pain

Posted by Anthony P on 9/04/01 at 22:18 (059057)

HI,
I'm worried, My toes are numb and painful like a sprained feeling.
I've been in a cast for five weeks due to Achillies tendonitis & plantar
fascitis which feels a little better but I still take pain meds for
the pain . I have one more week to go and I get out of the
cast Do you think my problem could be corrected with P.T. ?
or is this signs of T.T.S?
WISH YOU ALL WELL
Anthony

Does not sound too much like TTS to me - but perhaps others here will have a different opinion.

There is a good book on PF/TTS called something like 'Numb Toes and Burning Soles' Does anyone know anything about this book?

best, Steve
