Dealing with Medical Issues....I Feel Awful!

I have not been in the mood to post...sad but true! I have loved reading everyone's blogs and have left even more comments than usual for people and I even have tons of half written blogs that I need to finish up and post. I just have not been feeling too good! When I was out of town, I was walking so much when that I had a flair up of plantar facscitis. For those of you who have never heard of it, it feels like glass fragments are shooting up the arch of your foot or your foot heal. When the outbreak first occurred, I thought I was getting shin splints or something. Then I mentioned the EXTREME pain I was suffering with and someone mentioned that I could have planter fascitis. When the term came up, my first thought was, hummmmm that term sounds so familiar! I then thought back to when I used to be a gym rat, a long, long time ago (Back from about 90 to 94, before my leg got messed up in the Northridge Earthquake) and remembered that I had been diagnosed with something similar to the plantar fascitis condition at one point in my life.

Yesterday, I was still not feeling too good and it hurt to walk so I went to my chiropractor and he adjusted my body and suggested I get some soft orthotics as my one arch is pretty much non-existent. I agreed to do that and get the athletic socks with the arch support as well as do a bunch of other holistic things to treat the condition! When I got home, sure nuff, I found the old Orthotics that were made for me back in like 1996! They were made with a type of fiberglass and hurt like hell so I never bothered wearing em! Its funny how we forget about stuff.... anyway, I have an appointment with my regular doctor to discuss the issue and have been taking a little rest from walking all day every day! Hopefully, I will feel better tonite. I am supposed to be wearing something besides flip-flops and am going to put on good tennis shoes with a shock absorber tonite when I go out. Wish me luck! I like flip flop soccer slides better!

Peace,
Diva

Ouch! I have my own set of ankle/foot issues, and it can be pretty annoying. Hope you are feeling better soon!

I'm a doctor's worst nightmare. I live in my flip flops in the summertime. Hope you're feeling better.
