I am new to this site and was hoping to get some much needed advice from people who may have the same ir similar prinkem as me.
I have Osteoarthritis which I have been managing quite well with exercise and pain killers. However, walking my dog has become absolute agony for me since the arthritis in my feet has become a real issue. I am awaiting a face to face appt with a podiatrist but in the meantime, I wondered if anyone had advice for me on anything that has helped them.
I recently started wearing Ecco trainers which initially seemed really good and gave my feet lots of support, but even these are not helping at the moment. The pain is in the joints over the top of my foot. I have had some custom made insoles provided by the podiatry service which I cannot fit into most of my shoes.
Any advice from fellow suffers would be very much appreciated. I am only 61 and feel much older as I hobble along in extreme pain. I have lots of life left in me and it is hampering my quest to lose weight as I know this puts pressure on my joints.
I would be so thankful for any suggestions/advice.
