If I can't find ready made magnetic socks, I might make them from scratch using small magnets with a hole in the middle sewn on the outside of heavy woolen socks...
Do you have to avoid alcohol completely with PN or is it still OK to have a couple glasses of wine with meals?...
You know I think once the back belt gets rolling for you, you won't need any others. The magnets in the belt will block the signals from the feet from getting thru to the spinal cord.
The only foot intervention that has worked for me is putting one magnet at the tarsal ligament, to help release any compression there. I can get a sharp pain in my left ankle, at that location that is different from burning. One of my strong magnets there helps. I had an injection at that location once--a steroid one, and I had surgery when I was 12 on my instep for a tumor (a hemangioma), and the surgeon told me the tendons will never be quite the same. That ankle is mostly okay, but does flare now and then for some reason. That foot also has a mild swelling below the ankle...because of the surgical damage. Looking at the ankle, you'd never know, but certain shoes hit me there --slip on clog types-- and really hurt. I bought a wonderful set of clogs (indoor outdoor slippers) by Woolrich, even a size larger, that hit me there. I tried to stretch them, no go. So I got out my scissors and cut the midseam, about 1/4 of an inch and now I can wear them.
Since most of your pain is suspected to come from the sacral area, I'd think that is where your attention should be, at least for now. Buying separate neodymium magnets, the 1/2 in diameter is very inexpensive. They even have them on Ebay.
