At the podiatrist today for my nails to be cut. Have had a really sore big toe for a couple of weeks, or more. Tried to ignore it, in the mistaken belief that if I didn't acknowledge it, it would go away. ....even though it was nearly double normal size!
So,the big reveal as I removed my socks, podiatrist takes one glance, "well you're going to need antibiotics, how long has it been like that? " Duly chastened, I mumbled that it might have been a couple of weeks. .....or more.
Twenty minutes later, I limped out, leaving what felt like half my toe behind.
......feeling really stupid! !!
Now at home, 7 days antibiotics, feet up,toe throbbing and swollen, really fed up.
Moral of the tale. Don't neglect yourself, almost certainly pain and niggles don't go away by themselves!!! M x
