I've been with the TA for just over 18 months now and am currently going through my phase B training. Id like to get some advice from more experienced people on these forums as to whether i stay with the TA. --While i was going through my training at pirbright i started to notice that my feet were in pretty bad condition after the first few (short) CFT's. As time went on the soles of my feet got much worse to the point where i had to finish the last week constantly on painkillers. The training staff did recognise the problem and i was told that i could seek on site medical treatment, however, i would probably have to quit the training due to the packed training shedule we had. As mentioned before i decided to continue and eventually did my passing out parade on painkillers. Id put the blame down to the constant marching and training of that few weeks (I had taken time to look after my feet before going into the field, etc.) and assumed that was the end of my problems. Not too long ago on a training excercise with my sqn i knew i had a CFT coming up and took plenty of time to make sure my feet were ready, but after 5 miles i collapsed and had to be taken to A&E. The doctors pulled off my boots/socks and id found that again the skin on both my heels had entirely come off and was basically told not to continue with any of these tests by the doctors. I want to know others opinions on whether i should continue with the TA or if anyone else has had a similar problem as everyone at my sqn had never seen anything so severe from such a short distance. Im not really sure whether to try alcohol because the skin is in a very akward area and takes months to fully heal if it happens again. Anyway, thanks for reading and any advice would be really appreciated.
