Orthodics haven't worked

Posted by Jo B. on 5/14/04 at 19:56 (150608)

Hi, I haven't written in a while, but I've been reading regularly. I've been wearing the new orthodics for about a month now & it hasn't helped a bit. I go back to the doctor Tuesday. I have the feeling that he's going to give me Cortizone shots next.

I got a copy of my NCV test, it was positive. The results were: Abnormal study. Mildly prolonged lateral plantar latency suggests impingement at the tarsal tunnel or local compression along the course of the lateral plantar branch bilaterally.


Any way, I've been pretty miserable. My neck is causing me trouble also. I herniated a disk 2 & 1/2 years ago and it's never healed correctly. I've had 2 rounds of Cortizone shots in it. Monday, May 24th I have to have a procedure on it called a radiofrequency procedure. Hopefully stop the nerve pain in my neck, shoulder, & down my right arm.

One good thing though, because of my neck I'm back on neurontin and it's helped a little. Well, at least I'm not dead, hurts too darn much to be! ;~)

I hope everyone else is coping well. Talk to you later. - Jo

Don't remember if I've posted to you before. If you don't know the cause of your TTS, compression socks can be helpful. They're easy to try.
