I feel like Physical Therapy is making me worse.
Hello everyone, I have been doing PT for the past three weeks for SFN. I don’t have numbness just tons of pain in both feet. I have been given stretching exercises to help with the pain and flexibility. The therapist wants me to do these exercises three to four times a day, 15 reps each and also increase my walking. My pain level has gone up significantly and I feel very frustrated because nerve pain seems to have a mind of its own. I am getting more searing pain on top of feet and more fasciculations. I feel as if I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t move enough as well. I am asking the group if anyone has gone down this same road with PT. I really hate to stop it completely but sometimes I feel like I just have to listen to what the pain is telling me. Thanks for any advice.
