Hello everyone! My native tongue is german (I live in Austria/ Europe) so there will be mistakes in my posting. In december 2010 I was diagnosed from a necrosis of the sesamoid (a little bone) in my left foot. Half a year later, burning pain startet in the foot and from this moment on I could neither sit nor walk longer than 3-4 minutes because of the pain in my foot. So, since 4,5 years I am lying on my couch, which is sometimes very hard for me, particulary because I live alone. The diagnosis of my foot was/is CRPS (RSD). Three years ago my friend and I separated. It was the best solution for both of us, but nevertheless is was a difficult time for me (after 13 years of relationship) For my foot I' ve had every therapy you can imagine, even a SCS with two electrodes in my spine which was removed after three months. The necrosis has healed meanwhile, the last MRI in january 2015 did'nt show anything. Two month ago I startet to read the books of Dr.Sarno, Scott Brady, Eric Watson, John Kehoe, Steven Ozanich....and I am convinced that my pain is TMS.. And the pain got already better! So I startet to walk outside and exercice on the hometrainer. I can walk about 300-400 meters, than the foot starts to hurt so much that I must stop. I do this twice a day and the hometrainer 3 times a day for some minutes. The rest of the day I am still lying except a quick coffee in a coffee- shop where I go by car ( it is an automatic). Now there are two questions: - Shall I continue to walk longer, even though my foot hurts so much that I could cry and then the pain continues till bedtime? - One thing that helps against the pain is a tissue soaked with cool water that I put around my foot. Does this prevent from healing because the foot gets too much attention? I hope my posting is not too confusing!
