A little background info first to better understand what is going on. I got discharged from the Army in 95 due to problems with my left foot. Fast forward to 2007 and I started having big problems with my right knee. After seeing 5 doctors and none of them having a clue as to what was going on, the 6th doctor found my left foot was causing my knee pain. In 2011 I had the first of what would be 5 foot surgeries.
So here lately, my left foot has been giving me a lot of problems so I went back to my foot doctor. After examining my foot and x rays she tells me there is nothing more that she can do to help me. Then she tells me she is referring me to see a neurologist as all of my recent(in the last 5 years) problems are being caused from nerve issues. She tells me if the neurologist can't figure out what is going on, and reverse the problem then it is a matter of time before I loose total control over my foot.
So, this has motivated me to reevaluate my preps and to see if there is something I can do .now that will help me out a lot in the future. In the meantime, it is a huge punch to my gut to hear that I am slowly loosing control of my foot and the problems associated with it will only be getting worse.
