I don't know if anyone is watching this section at all as no one has replied, however, I have some information to share.
It is quite likely that the nerve damage I am experiencing is due to the swelling in my leg. Because my skin doesn't stretch, it's compressing everything and thereby damaging the nerves. If you end up up with prolonged swelling (more than a day) please go see your doctor and do everything you can to reduce swelling. I have been swollen in various parts of my right leg for three months now, and the nerve damage is continuing to spread.
Unfortunately, we still don't know what's causing the swelling, but that's another story. If it ends up being related to icthyosis at all, I'll post.
I am female, and was born in 1972 with Lamellar Ichthyosis.
