PTSD and the impact on Soldier Foot/Stellate Ganglion block

This is a picture of my husbands feet in September 2011.  They often look this bad.
Today I had him get ready for work to do his foot care......

His feet are healed.

There is no open raw weeping area.

Only an open raw and weeping wife.

What the hell is going on here?!

We left for Chicago to Dr. Lipov on Monday.  His feet were open.  His feet are closed today. He has taken prednisone and keflex off and on for YEARS. 

I'm not sure if this is related to the PTSD injection or not.

What I do know is this....when my husband's ptsd and anxiety flare, so do his feet.

You decide.

  1. That's crazy! I've never heard of that, but my husband also has PTSD and the bottoms of his feet are always cracked open, with sores and they bleed. I'm sure it's just a coincidence but so weird. I'm a new follower, and I don't know your whole story but I really hope this treatment helps!

  3. This may be a collagen and circulation disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Try Mupirocin ointment with A and D ointment over it and a thick pressed on layer of medicated powder. Then loose compression socks when he's not got his feet up. This has cured everyone I've ever tried it on without the Mupirocin even. That could be used as a last resort if the others stuff doesn't work without it.
