Shoes that fit?
After seven months of trying to figure out what is going on with my foot, the docs have finally diagnosed me with RSD. I was given a prescription for Neurontin, and that has really helped the sensitivity (thank goodness), but nothing seems to help the swelling. My affected area is the ball of my foot, and the area on top right behind my toes. By 4pm, the swelling is crazy, even if I'm off my feet a good part of the day.
My problem is, with the swelling in the front part of my foot, I can't get a shoe on. I've been using an orthopedic boot whenever I leave the house partially because I can't get a shoe on, but also because it helps me avoid walking on the swollen and painful ball of the foot.
I finally discovered Teva sandals fit because the toe strap can be expanded so far. But I live in snow country. What shoe can I possibly wear once cold weather comes that will fit? Anybody have any ideas?
