Dear Reader
I would suggest that you try taking vitamin B complex (buy at chemist) as the B vitamins are known to assist with nerve regeneration. Hopefully this will help to speed up recovery of the neuropathic pain in your foot. I trust that the dr who is treating you has also suggested physiotherapy to aid healing?
Hope the condition improves soon
