Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

I have PN in my right lower leg and also have stiffness and tightness across the mid foot, sometimes reaching to my big toe (especially) and other toes. I do ankle stretching exercises on a stair step every day. I’ve watched my actual ankle range of motion and I’ve come to the conclusion that the sensory information the damaged nerves are sending me is NOT accurate. Those nerves are yelling stiffness and tightness, but I actually have better range on the affected ankle, probably due to all that stretching! Massage does nothing for the feeling of tightness, compression hose is more for swelling. I really believe I am being hornswoggled by those damaged nerves. So, I try to ignore them and keep on with life!

Interesting. It goes along with what PT told me yesterday. They told me to keep doing the exercises they provided even though I don't think they are doing anything. They said that I am training my foot even though I may not be totally aware. Keep on!
