Medical Journal: Progressively Worse Foot Drop | Entry 6

Not headed in the right direction
Not headed in the right direction

My foot drop is progressively worse. I can’t perform any function that involves dorsiflexion of my right ankle and flexion of my right great toe. The remaining right toes will not flex with minimum resistance. I get around by holding on to the walls (3 points of contact) and using my core to lift my right leg and foot which points to the floor.

My back pain is getting worse. At times, I am bed-ridden with pain that is also in my hip–either one.
My left ankle pain is also getting worse but I can move my left foot and ankle unlike my right.

  1. Dear Angy,

    Of course it’s difficult to diagnose at such a distance, but thinking about you and your foot, seeing the pictures of your foot you send me, I should advise you the following medication : 1) -Asperine( as blood-thinner);

    2)-Venoruton( to “stimulate”/ open the peripheral circulation

    ad 1):Asp.: as far as I think to “know” you medically, I think you have an allergic constitution,so be carefull that you are NT allergic for asperine !!( they can test it with skin-tests) If nt allergic for asperine:start with a high dosis(3×500 mg / day) for 5 days and continue with twice a day 500 mg., at least for 10 days fter those 5 “beginning-days”; IF allergic(for asperine), they can give you another blood-thinner.

    ad 2) :Venoruton( hydroxyl-rutoside) : twice a-day 1 tablet( I thougt of 500 mg each), also for 10 days, before you can cheque if it has any effect.

    In general : a)- I always began(to prescribe) a short, HIGH beginning-dosis, after which you can continue with a lower dosis; b)-It is the COMBINATION of Asperine and Venoruton that has to do the job !!

    I hope you can discuss it with your specialist and again, it’s difficult to diagnose at distance, without further lab-examinations(Did they check if there is one of the variations of sickel-cell ?, but that doesn’t change the medication, mentioned above), but the pictures you send me were clear to me, that it’s a vascular problem, nt orthopedic. Please DON’T become nervous, but DON’T wait to long with further(?) examination, because it s NOT a “self-limiting disease” and it is NT a hysterical Angela Grant-Crane either, I forbit you to think any longer in that way !!!! And DON’T forget either : I love you still and often send all my forces to you, ( and that DOES work too, but mentally,not specific for your toes). Please keep me informed; Otherwise : SKYPE ? Love, Bart 5999(?)-5211822

  2. Dear Angy,

    Of course it’s difficult to diagnose at such a distance, but thinking about you and your foot, seeing the pictures of your foot you send (me), I am sure it’s (neuro-) vascular and Ishould advise you the following medication : 1) -Asperine( as blood-thinner);

    2)-Venoruton( to “stimulate”/ open the peripheral circulation

    ad 1):Asp.: as far as I think to “know” you medically, I think you have an allergic constitution,so be carefull that you are NT allergic for asperine !!( they can test it with skin-tests) If nt allergic for asperine:start with a high dosis(3×500 mg / day) for 5 days and continue with twice a day 500 mg., at least for 10 days fter those 5 “beginning-days”; IF allergic(for asperine), they can give you another blood-thinner.

    1. Thank you Bart. I am doing okay as far as pain by listening to my body. My neurologist is old fashioned–thorough. Still, I am educating myself or attempting to. 🙂 Thank you for the energy and love. 🙂
