Good afternoon my pals!
You know the glamorous support boot/splint thing I`ve been using for a few days? Well, yesterday afternoon, I suddenly got an awful pain in my calf, on the leg the boot was on. Oooh it did chuffing hurt!
So, my stupid mind thought…dvt! Yeh, I know, a tad over dramatic probably. Anyway I quickly removed said boot and the pain went.
Now the back of the leg part is curved and my foot didnt go right in where I reckon it should be.
The reason I was given the boot, a good while back, is different from why I`ve tried it now.
I`m having quite an intense, deep ache in my thigh. The boot eased the pain, as well as stopped my foot flop. And after I took the boot off, the pain my thigh was worse than before.
Do you think my self diagnosis/treatment is possibly doing more harm than good?
Guess I ought to wait till 16th Sept and discuss it with my new neuro, eh?
ps no posh words today!
