Hi Lindakey. I can imagine how difficult it must've been for you and the stress youve been through not knowing what it was. How did you react when you finally found out you had P? More disappointed or happy that it wasn't a fungus?

Lindakay1948 You are not alone there, My Dr said to me "eat broccoli & how are your teeth, here is some steroid cream" which I told her I didn't want, & my teeth where fine in a glass beside my bed !!!
I left there in a bad mood.
I have had 4 different Dr's & 4 different diagnosis in the end I asked if it was p & last Dr said Yes, why ask?? !!!

Mine thought it was sweat and coal dust being mixed to a paste by the movement of my hard hat. That was around 40 years ago. My current GP told be recently, their knowledge of P hasn't advanced much since then.

Two MD's and One Decent Referral later finally had the proper Diagnosis and honestly knowing what it was and that it was an autoimmune disease from which there is NO cure has actually been a Blessing but when I found out I cried for days and still couldn't walk on my feet...that's when I started wrapping my feet nitely with saran wrap and wore socks to hold that on...and when it begun to heal just a tiny bit I cried again..its a long arduous road to turn around from ya know...Now I have flares and have learned how to deal with them,,changed my point of view completely and it also made me very tender with my patients who have had burns from radiation treatments...its the one sharing and caring lesson I should have learned long ago...funny How that all worked together for my good..:>)
