Well everyone, firstly i am apologising to you all for me not being here much, I feel bad about that.
Today I headed off for my podiatry appointment. I was chomping at the bit and could not wait to get there. I even refused to let the cold weather get me down.
I got there and was not waiting long before I was called in. I do not hobble along anymore, I wobble along. This is because I am now experiencing heel pain in the left foot caused by all the limoping on the right foot. So now I have a new diagnosis of Plactar fasciitis in both feet, ruptue Plantar right and damaged tendons to ankle plus tightening of the achilles. No wonder I am wobbling along.
Anyway I came away with insoles to break in 1 hour twice a day and gel heel cups. A referral to physio for splints to keep the feet at a right angle when at rest or sleeping. That sounds so uncomfortable. Heel already badly deformed so much so that the right foot turns inwards now on its own.
And where does the FMS come in? Well she thinks it is highly unlikey that due to the FMS anything that is done will be successful and even if I reconsider surgery I am told there is a good chance it will eaither make no difference or make things worse.
What amazed me was the knowledge of FMS by the podiatrist. She was so lovely too.
Will try and get on here over the next few days and join in as I feel lost without you all XXXXX
