Husband's gone a week with broken toe

I'm a little irritated that I have always listened and cared about other's in my family's problems big and small, mostly small. Now, you all are the only ones who understand.

Dh saw a podiatrist who treated him like a person, and showed great concern and is going to monitor the neuropathy. It has progressed more than I thought. So much so he broke his toe but has no idea when he did it.

I'm just so glad I don't have to work, or I don't know how his health or my health would be. I'm blessed.

This makes me so sad. I am so sorry that you and your DH have to go through this. Sending you big (((((((( HUGS)))))))

My dad suffered from neuropathy but was never diabetic. He had such pain from it and also wore a long brace because of foot drop. I have no idea how to prevent that problem and hope I don't inherit it!

I'm glad you found a doctor who will monitor the situation.

Be sure to continue to take time for yourself.

It's so hard to watch those we love go down the slippery slope of poor health. One day at a time, one problem at a time is what it sound like you are doing. Glad at least one DR. IS helping YOUR DH now.

I could not understand the broken toe part at first....Then I realized that there is no feeling with neuropathy. My DH has this problem and has had a lack of understanding from several doctors as well as myself. I never realized he could have other issues because of this. Thanks for making ME be more concerned with his problem. You are lucky to find a doctor who actually listens.

I never understood this either. It wasn't caused by diabetes, ironically his diabetes got under control then he got a severe virus that wrecked his autonomic and peripheral nervous system. He can't feel/ sense temperature correctly. Hot feels cold etc. He feels pain only in the deep ligaments and joints. He had weight loss surgery and lost weight thinking this would prevent all these problems but it got him from another cause. Podiatrist says he sees this a lot. Unknown cause is the 5th leading cause. Infection, drug reactions, viruses. You don't know there's no test to tell you.
Ugh.
