Sore to press on toe, mainly on outside. Not taking oral medicines.
Middle to joint with foot
Thanks for information. The pain is not significant and rarely goes red until agitated by walking and sciatic pain. It is close to the area of the previous blister. I shall nevertheless try naproxen if chemist will sell. Is there a different remedy required for gout?
Thank you for the opportunity to ask a further question under you seven day offer. As I feel in good health generally and do not take regular medication, this question is related in a way to my initial question.
Having suffered with sciatica for many years since pulling a back muscle at golf, I have had much advice and some treatment from a GP, physio, podiatrist, chiropractor, aqua puncture with probably the most specific acknowledging the sciatica and referring to lack of tissue around no 3 disc. I take mild exercise and use various ointments.
Recently the symptoms have increased on walking and standing to give soreness from toe (original q refers) through top of foot to ankle. The back pain is centred around the top of the right buttock.
The symptoms reduce significantly with rest and application of ointment. From your previous advice I suspect I shall need to visit my GP again if things do not improve perhaps to obtain the medicine you suggest.
I give this background as it leads to my question: I have light brown discoloured skin patches on both legs (mainly the right with sciatica), near the ankles and calf. They range from 2/3 inches to six inches roughly circular. They are not painful but the skin seems 'thin' and occasionally spots appear which take a long time to heal. I wondered if they were a symptom of the sciatica problem or more of a diet related problem?
I have rated as excellent service. Thank you very much. I am still getting duplicate emails so hope everything has worked on system and the payment is processed.
