Not sure why you chose ALS, but it sounds like your entire problem is foot related. See a podiatrist to see if orthotics could make a difference. We have a ‘good feet’ store with a unique type of orthotic which you can try, before you buy, to determine the benefits in YOUR case. Also consider getting a pair of medium weight controlled graduated compression hose, which will help your legs as well.
