Foot Neuropathy Differential Diagnosis

Let me start with I’m a diabetic. I developedneuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but it’s over a period of time.It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walkingon glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because he’s just a great physician. I wouldn’t think twice, I’d recommendhim to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can’t say enough about Bullard. He’sjust a great physician and I don’t know if there’s anything he couldn’t do hecould probably move mountains if he wanted to!Glen, probably one of the biggest questions

people are asking you is what’d we do, what’shappened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tinglingand the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here,which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose aroundit. What we did is we went in and loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to beginto function and work like it’s supposed to.Now, the sensation is coming back, it’s something that’s going to take time butI can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. There’s no other physician

that I would recommend.Glen, in the next couple weeks, what we’re going to do is make sure that the swellingis improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, becauseI know it’s kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear andthings like that are where they’re supposed to be, fitting you well, protecting your feetand stuff. Ok? Very good. Thank you, I appreciate it, havea good weekend! You do the same. Alright, see ya..
