Owww....that sounds very painful !! Did the podiatrist deaden the toes for you ? I didn't know they did that sort of thing. When you say your nails are curling in from the sides, do you mean lifting from the sides (concave) or curling in like an ingrown toenail ?
Hope your feet are feeling better soon since the cool mornings and nights have set in.

You are brave. I chickened out of my appointment to take care of my toenails. Sometimes they don't bother me so much but other times - oooooooh!
I may have to have them done yet. They look good, they just hurt like crazy! Sometimes I use an over the counter with lidocaine in it which helps a bit temporairly.

I live in Australia as well, my G.P gave me a referral as well for me to see a Podiatrist, 5 free visits per year. You also have the option to see a Psychologist, Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist for some of those 5 visits. It is 5 free visits in total, you can use your 5 visits to see one therapist or you can see any therapist you wish as long as it is 5 visits in total per year.
I'm probably totally confusing you now, sorry.

Celia, I didn't realise you could get five visits per year...thought it was just five all up. Haven't talked to my doctor about it yet as he is on holidays. It's good to know you can use it for other things as well. I might need a psychology visit...traumatised from this toe business lol
Take care all
