Sorry to hear about
your being so ill. I am glad that you are feeling better now, but do be careful to keep an eye on that blister and the infection. Being diabetic can cause it to become a huge infection in no time, and especially because it is on your foot.
Did the doctor give you any antibiotics until you can get in to see the podiatrist?
Glad that you are getting some relief from the pain, but hope that your doctor will work with you on dealing with the moving around pain too.
It's hard to sit around, doing nothing all of the time. Hang in there and best of luck to you,

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
