A couple of months ago I went to an orthopedic guy because I had pain in my right foot. He diagnosed it as Morton's Neuroma and gave me orthotics to put in my shoes. The orthotics helped take the pressure off the neuroma, and while they didn't cure the problem, they made it much less uncomfortable.
I've been running along, doing my thing, 1/2 hour walking on the treadmill, nothing too strenuous, and suddenly, overnight, I have excruciating pain in my left heel. While the orthotics helped the original problem, seems they've created an even bigger problem in the opposite foot. I can't put weight on it. The orthopedic assistant thinks it's heel tendonitis and has prescribed a boot.
A fricking boot.
'Tis so not the season for an orthopedic boot.
It feels like The Cat in the Hat, where cleaning up one mess only leads to another. I don't even want to think about what's next.
