Burning pain in my smallest toe

I am having a burning pain in my smallest toe. Not constantly, but daily and not all day. I have been cured of hep C. within the past two years. The pain used to occur randomly in the past 20 yrs but is now daily. I have low blood sugar and I have been cured of porpheria at the same time as the hep C.. My calfs , feet, and ankles are changing color and are slightly swollen. I no longer have health insurance and my finances are drained from the other treatments. Please help me.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Since you are no longer under insurance I would start with healthy lifestyle changes included movement into your daily routine. Begin to integrate foot and calf stretches and releases every day. I suggest roling on a golf ball or lacrosse ball 10 minutes every day followed by 5 minutes of calf stretches. This will help to address any stickiness to tissues that can restrict nerves and circulation. In addition I would ensure you are getting enough activity including walking at a good pace. Our calves are like our second heart which means it plays an important role in blood flow and edema (swelling) in the feet and ankles. Other healthy recommendations is making sure you are not smoking, eating enough vegetables and hydrating properly. I would start here and see how your feet and ankle adjust after integrating these lifestyle changes.
