actually a quite few years ago i had wet sensations on my feet. It felt like I was standing in cold icewater yet my feet were warm and dry to touch. It also happened a couple times on one of my hands. I mentioned it to my doc and he noted it on my file, but nothing ever came of it and I do not have the sensation anymore. I had them off an on for about 6 months. Never knew what they were from. However, my feet started to deform slightly after the sensations stopped and started cramping severely. Its also during that time they diagnosed the drop foot on both feet and AFO's were perscribed.
Good for you to get your parking permit. Problem I find here in Alaska is that there is never enough handicap parking spaces available at the stores if I go during the late morning to evening time frame. I have to go either first thing in the morning (which also gets me the riding shopping carts to myself too) or don't go at all! (send someone else to do the shopping).
I used canes for a couple years but ended up using forearm crutches. Either way they all make my arms and shoulders hurt like the dickens and I still cannot go very far. I have been using my pw chair more and more, even in the house.
