Hi All,

The Dupuytren’s is not so problematic at the moment and can also be operated on in the future to ease symptoms hopefully.

My feet however, are a different story! They are so painful and other than paracetamol there is little I can do to ease the pain. To date I’ve not been offered alternative pain relief and cannot take standard ibuprofen based relief as I also have dodgy kidneys.

My question is how do you find suitable footwear and inserts? Is there a specialist store as I don’t trust buying this type of thing online at least until I’ve found something that works? My walking boots are the most comfortable footwear I have. Obviously can’t wear them everywhere and party season is fast approaching!

Thank you
