I had an orthopedic appt for some new pain that gets really bad and comes/goes on the left (good) foot and pain on the outside area of the bad foot. I see I journaled about it on 7/18 when it first appeared!!!!
Did an Xray and all is ok on the xray but I have nerve problems (inflammation) there on the good foot on the top by the toes s-- o he did a cortisone shot there.
The other bad foot (chornic sever3e tibial tendonitis) has ligament inflammation ,and he did a cortisone shot there, too. He cannot do the tendon on the bad foot bcz it can rupture.
We both laughed that I probably am the only one that said YES do both today .. usually he has to talk them into it LOL bcz of the pain.
He said tonight will throb and then start feeling better and the nerve will go away.
It's from wearing sandals more often than I should have .. yeah .. like 2hrs a day? I wear high top sneakers with custom made orthotics for 18 of the 24 hrs -- So much for vanity. One pays the price I guess. Ugh.
Anyway, they feel fine now .. no throbbing yet. We'll see and I'll just take it easy.
