What to ask a podiatrist?

Same here, I put my old Sketchers back on and it's like stepping on a balance board. I have bought a couple of pairs of Xero shoes which are pretty good quality but I wish they were made in the US and were a little cheaper.

Good morning, John–– It seems every day, I hear of something I'd not heard of before. You'll laugh––as my partner did–– when I admit to never having heard of Sketchers. "What were you." she said, "raised by wolves and only recently returned to civilization?" I'd also never heard of Xero shoes. But the timing of all this is perfect. I've arranged a sit-down with my podiatrist next Tuesday. He needs to know about my PN. I plan to ask him if there's anything in a podiatrist's toolbox that can help a guy with PN. I can also ask him about shoes: What might be the best for a fellow with foot numbness, either because he has a sensory PN, a motor PN, or a mixed bag? At times, I feel like I'm grasping at straws. But, of course, that's exactly what I'm doing, hoping not to find a "cure," only a little relief; when it comes to shoes, hoping I'll find a pair that will make everyday walking a little easier. ––Ray
