Painful Foot Issues & Walking Funny

Is anyone else suffering with these problems?  

I don't blame the bunion developing in my left foot and the nasty corn growing, painfully growing, over the tops of the toes, on MS but wondered if my funny way of walking (abnormal gait) is making it worse.

I never expected to have such problems because I don't wear pointie shoes or heels or any other offending shoes so why now?  

Just wondering if anyone else with foot drop or otherwise abnormal walking, caused by MS or yet to be diagnosis of MS are starting to notice these problems.  IF so, have you seen a podiatrist?  

One a side note, I think a Podiatirist is the "only" specialist I have not seen yet.  I always thought of them as doctors for old people.  :)

Thanks and hope you all are doing well.

I have noticed my feet developing weird skin thicknesses around the numb areas.  Not just the feet, either - my numb knee also has a big old callus on it.
