Hi Snowbird! I sent you a private message wanting to know the brand name of the pumice stone you used a couple of day sago...did you get it?

Hugs,

Catty

I have this problem too.. Feels like I'm walking on bone. Im glad I found this post and that im not alone! I find it very hard to walk barefoot (or just socks) because of the lack of padding and I get cramps in my feet from the cold. Thermal insoles help alot and I always wear thick soled boots and thermal socks. Unfortunately my friends criticise me over my footware, this hurts me alot and I'm sick of explaining why I have to wear them...

Rest assured, HazelTree, you'll never have to explain any choice of clothing to the members here.

 

My weirdest shoes are totally lambswool lined! They're ankle boots, black suede, and really big because of the lambswool. Very cozy.

 

Admittedly I tend not to wear them that often as I do look a bit like Mini Mouse on a bad shoe day. I take comfort, though, in the knowledge that I'd never get judged by fellow sufferers because they understand and know there are more important things in life.

:bye:

Oh Charliehorse, you're so funny! That's what my new boots look like, mini mouse feet, I just couldn't seem to come up with the similarity to describe it myself!! :emoticons-yes:

Just an update. I went to the podiatrist to get my nails cut. She had a nurse with her who was observing her for the day and I think because of that she forgot she was going to cut some thick skin from under my feet. I just kept my mouth shut and didn't remind her as I didn't want her to do it. So I have been soaking my feet and using a pumice stone and it seems to be helping.

I have painful soles,the specialist nurse at The Royal Free told me that scleroderma did indeed reduce thhe flesh on the soles and she recommended getting a referral from my G.P. to a Podiatrist who would make me inserts for my shoes.Hope this helps

I can't reach my feet to pumice. I have my podiatrist debride a corn on the ball of my foot every 6-8 weeks, not painful, extremely helpful, every 6-8 weeks. Its just scraping off a corn with a blade, not invasive. He has helped my with spongy latex insoles too. I can't get by without very spongy insoles/shoes.
