Well I finally went to the doctor because my heel/foot pain became almost unbearable. You have no idea the nightmare it was for me to go – I absolutely hate looking at feet and there were posters of foot fungus and various foot problems everywhere I looked. It was completely disgusting.
The doctor put me in a giant boot, I have to take a ton of Ibuprofen, ice it, etc. For 4 weeks I can’t do ANYTHING which means I can’t do anything I signed up for this spring (races, bike rides, cycling to work – NOTHING). After 4 weeks I go back for a reevaluation to see if I have to wear the boot longer, move on to a different splint or have an injection in my heel (no, that last one isn’t an option I am willing to do). It is really disappointing, but there’s nothing I can do about it – I have to take care of it now so I can get back to doing the things I love…. Guess I’ll be watching a LOT of Netflix.
