I need advice for diabetic neuropathy PAIN in heels.
I've been trying so hard trying to find ANY relief for my friend's Mom who is 90 and also has dementia. Only 2 weeks ago was she Unable to walk or put Any Pressure on her feet. Severe "Heel" Pain on Both feet! Her Mom cannot take Any "Pills," and so I'm trying to do some research on Creams that WORK!! Since my Mom passed away, I found that I'm much more sensitive to other Caregivers and their Mom or Dad's. I don't want her Mom to become Bed-ridden over this as I feel she will never get out of it again. Many times I feel that Caregivers Know More than Dr's sometimes., i.e. from their own trial and errors. I also tried
finding out about "Compound Medicines" where pills are made into Creams, but I'm still waiting to hear about Side-effects of that too. And now I come here to this fabulous site full of 'friends..' Do Any of You, or have Any of You ever needed a "Cream Or Salve" that worked for your loved one... that Really WORKED, specifically for "Heel" Pain?? Thanks alot, and although my Parents are no longer with me, I feel in my heart I will Always be a Caregiver. My Heart goes out to each of You and I will Always feel that 'connection' to other Caregivers always. Thank you for Any advice for my friend's Mom that possibly I can pass on to her. She is in a bad way right now because Nothing has worked.. God Bless you and thanks for any advice!
