Series 4: Programme 3

Margaret Conlan

Programme 3 features Margaret Conlan. 57 year old Margaret lives in Rathangan, runs a busy household and juggles two jobs.

She has suffered from chronic pain in her feet for the last 7 years which causes her considerable discomfort and stress. She is unable to exercise and copes by comfort eating.

Dr Mark Hamilton recommends she starts with a visit to a pedorthist (a foot specialist) and after years of looking for a cure to her problems this one appointment proves to be life changing.
