I'm wearing a special insole,with a lump in it to press up at what corresponds to a hand knuckle joint and widen the gap between two bones that are pressing on a nerve. It is, we've worked out, a long standing thing,exacerbated by an ankle that has always been weaker....so will take work over time to correct.
I'm finding HAVING to wear shoes a problem.
No taking off shoes as you enter the house.
No wearing jandals/flipflps/thong sandals...although after six months in New Zealand my ankle was stronger....
It is just going against the grain for a barefoot walker.
