Re: ingrown toenails/pins&needles after pregnancy

: I was pregnant w/ twins and gained 60 lbs on my previous 5'4" 130 lb body. I lost 30 in the first week after I gave birth. I lost 20 more in the next 4 months. I have had recurring ingrown toenails which I never had in my life. The podiatrist said it was because my feet were so swollen, the toenails had nowhere to go. Also, my ligaments stretched. I dont know what to do about the ingrown toenails because I have been to the podiatrist 3 times getting them dug out and they keep coming back . he looked at my shoes and they are OK. I got new shoes since I am in a bigger size after pregnancy. I dont know if I should switch doctors? or do I just deal with this? Is there anything over the counter I can get? or will they just go away? Also, I dont know if its related but I get pins and Needles in my feet after I am sleeping or even just sitting for a while. I step on my feet and it is so painful to walk on them. I dont know if its my feet, or my circulation? The arches of my feet hurt really bad now after I gave birth too. I am not sure what to do about all of this? what kind of doctor to see, or will it just go away?
cialis

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
