For 5 weeks I've had pain come and go in my left foot.
Firstly I have to say that I haven't fallen, there has been no trauma to my foot.
The first time it was there for about 2 and a half weeks and I put it down to the fact that my job requires me being on my feet a lot and that it had finally got up with me, but after resting for good long time it was still there. So I decided to visit my GP who thought it was tendonitis and had me on co codomal. The pain did go away but that was after 2 weeks of complete rest.
On Sunday around 4am the pain returned, and all I did was get up off the chair, after going to the GP she now thinks it's inflammation and has given me omeprazole to help with taking naproxen.
Now the pain is on the underside of the foot just below the toes and when walking on it, my foot unintentionally points outward, like a penguin. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Also am I correct in saying that I should be resting while 'dealing' with inflammation?
