Hi

It depends on what is causing the pain/difficulty walking. If it is from the deformed toes, then you will need to see a podiatrist and maybe a foot surgeon to look at the options. If it is from the neuropathy, then there are tablet options to help with the pain, which you can get on prescription from your doctor
