A Pain in the Foot......

I am certainly not one that likes to sit around....but it sure looks like I'm going to be doing a little more sitting....at least, until my foot gets better.

My foot has been hurting for several weeks now....but I just kept thinking that {EACH next morning} it would feel better!

Let me tell you...a shopping trip like I had this past Friday....is NOT what the Doctor would have ordered for my foot problem!!!!

I couldn't wait for Monday to hurry up and get here...so I could call and make an appointment with my super nice Podiatrist.  It just so happens, that the doctor could see me this afternoon at 2:45....  YEA!!

After a few descriptions of the pain in my foot, Dr M....pretty well knew the correct diagnoses for my problem.   A few X-Rays confirmed that I have "Morton's Neuroma" which is a thickening of nerve tissue.  A nerve in my foot is being pinched!!!

He wrote me a prescription for an insert to go in my shoe...and hopefully, this will help.  I also need to rest my foot as often as I can.  Ice being applied to ball of my foot is suppose to help as well.  

Have any of you ever had this problem in the past?  If so, I'd love to hear your remedies...

Hugs,
shug....

I have not had that problem,but due to years of back problems,I know how hard it can be to sit when there are so many things to do.

I've never had that happen but I sure hope you can take it easy while it gets better! Sending you some extra hugs tonight, Diane

YES, Phil had it! He went to a podiatrist like you did. He gave him a cortisone shot which really helped. He also told him to rest it. He predicted it would return within a year, but it never did. If you don't get better soon, ask about the shot.

I've not had this particular problem, so I'm no help there. I am sorry you have this and having to sit more. I do know it's no fun dealing with pain after enduring a bad ankle break years ago. And it still sidelines me occasionally even now.
Hoping you are better soon! Take care.

No, I haven't had that problem, but I'm so sorry you do. I hope what the doctor has suggested will work. I've learned to like Christmas shopping online, so no work on my feet are involved; only my fingers! Hope you feel better soon. Lord, please look after sweet Shug and mend her hurting foot. Amen.

Sorry to hear about your foot pain. In the worse place, and at this time of year. I have plantars fascitis at times and the only thing that will help is taking time to stay off the darn things. Needless to say I live with sore feet.
Put em up Shug!
