Podiatrist

Yep. I finally went to one. I went to the same guy that did surgery on my feet for bone spurs in 2003. He is one of the best!

Turns out my foot pain is pinched nerves! I had 4 shots and am not allowed to walk on concrete, on treadmills, or without shoes for 3 weeks. I guess I have to join a damn gym now! He said the sitting elliptical or a bike is fine as well as walking on mulch and in grass. That kind of limits me outside. 😫

I took a few pictures in the office. They even made foot molds of my feet and are making me orthotics to wear.

This doctor does seminars for other podiatrists and asked if he could take a picture of my ankle tattoos and asked why I got them. He loved the story! It’s my sons initials saying that he’s my sun, my moon, and my stars (I explained that before in my tattoos post too). He said he likes showing them tats at the conference.

The only thing I have today is Forgetful. After multiple shots into my ankle and heel, I don’t really want to do much! I walked a BUNCH yesterday because I walked over to see Forgetful and see how her Christmas was at her step sons house.

That’s it for today. I’m going to not do much exercise today to try and relax my poor feet with medicine in them now!

      2. No join fee. It’s usually $125! It is $60 a month but I am going to take my taxes from last year and see if I can get a discount. That’s one good thing about the Y.

      3. thats actually not bad if you feel like you will use it enough. I pay 45 but the gym basically has everything I could hope for. They have a discount program at my gym as well so that will certainly help to offset the cost.

  1. Pinched nerves where? How do you feel it in your feet? I ask bc my neuro blew me off which makes him an ass because I have a muscle disease like try dude wtf. Anyway it is pain in my big toes but like needles. Not gout or joint but the tips of my toes like stabbing. It sucks

    1. Ooh! Yuck! That could be a nerve thing but I’m not sure. Actually what he did was press in certain spots in my foot and asked me what I felt. I guess the shooting pain down to the toes on one and up the back of my leg on the other spot told him I have pinched nerves.
