Having a bad day !

I’m having a really bad day today. For the last couple of days I have been experiencing numbness in my left foot which now feels quite strange when I stand on it.

I went for my usual Reflexology treatment and mentioned it to my Reflexologist and she had a good massage and dig with it but I couldn’t feel much as it is numb but she did touch some points which were extremely painful and she thinks its coming from my neck.

I came back and had a rest straight away but even though I’ve taken some more meds I feel awful, in lots of pain and very very sickly and I am now wondering if it could be my balance thats making me feel sick.

I don’t feel that I am standing different but you must do if half your foot is numb. My sister wants me to go to the Doc if its no better tomorrow but they won’t be able to do anything so I’m just hoping it clears up.

I definitely overdid it last week so it took it out of me but my Dad needed me at the end of the day. It just really frustrates me that I have to suffer like this after just helping him. The pain down my arm is a joke !!!!

Feeling a bit sorry for myself I think – will snap out of it soon when the pain subsides !!!

  1. Having suffered with severe back pain problems for over forty years I can tell you that you need to see your gp a.s.a.p and insist on an xray study. Loss of sensation in a limb can mean all sorts of things including lack of blood supply and damaged nerves. I do not want to be an alarmist but I have had many years of experience with the medical proffession over this. Failing that you should insist on physiotherapy or go privately to a cranial osteopath. Personally I have had great results with acupuncture, although this does not work for everyone. I don’t know your age but I can assure you that untreated it will not improve over years


    • Thanks for thinking of me. I’m still feeling very sickly and in pain so I think if this carries on a few more days I may have to go and see the Doc as you suggest. I’ll keep you posted. B


  2. I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having a bad time Bar.

    I agree I really think you should go to see your Dr or even A&E, your health is so important and you need to look after yourself. I know the stress has increased and you’ve been looking after your Dad but thats not the reason why this has happened.

    You can feel sorry for yourself, we are all having bad times but we have each other and that will help.

    Thinking of you.

    • Hi Emja
      Ah! thanks for that – I’ve just sent you a private message as I didn’t get the one you sent me yesterday so sorry you’ve heard about my problem twice.

      I do hope your feeling better today. As I said to Spiritbird if this carries on I will go to Doc as I just don’t feel right at the mo. I’ll write. Take care, B xx
