Painful Walking

My husband is experiencing pain, mostly in arch of right foot, making walking very painful and short in duration. Began about a year ago. Initially thought it was neuropathy from treatment, but as best he can explain feels like pain from bones not nerve endings. His tumor was left frontal lobs so we are not surprised his right side is the problem. Just wondering if his experience is unique to him...............

sorry, the only thing i can think of is...  is he walking badly because of the tumor?  sometimes my husband will walk 'crooked' or mis-step and have to quick correct so he doesnt fall.  walking 'incorrectly' like that can hurt the feet (not to mention everything else) so maybe if he's walking poorly he just did some damage?  maybe take him to a foot doc or even a good chiropractor can check.

good luck, sarah

Could be tumour related, affecting the motor cortex or causing co-ordination problems, so he does not walk naturally, and that causes pain . Have you seen a physio?

I experienced pain on the top of my foot and some minor aches in my hands. If I touched or pressed on my foot it was pretty severe pain. I had it for several years.  I came off Kepra approx 6 - 8 months ago and the hand aches are completely gone and the foot pain is about 90% better.

 

Can’t say for sure what that it was the Kepra but it may be worse asking.

 

Thanks

Hux

Thanks for all the input. Dan had plantar fasciitis many years ago. We know that isn't the issue. Wishing that were the culprit since I think Huxley is right on. He's on Keppra. Not a high dose, but for over 2 years. He's seeing the podiatrist tomorrow. Not his first visit. Don't hold out much hope for relief. I hurt watching him walking, but hey he's here 2 plus years following diagnosis. Keeping everyone in my prayers. Pam
