Well the doctor told me that I hurt my foot doing too much exercise! Prior to my starting my exercise routine I had been completely sedentary except for the occasional shopping trip & then I started working out 1-3 miles every day! (for several weeks in a row). Those who know me can attest!! So, that's no good on my body because that's 240 LB of pressure on my poor feet. So, needless to say I hurt my foot with all that pressure and pounding each day. So, he told me to stay off my foot and keep it elevated and keep taking Aleve. He prescribed me an anti swelling med which I haven't heard from Walgreens yet as to whether it is ready or not. Also, he told me to get an Xray. So, I did as soon as I left his office, about 10 minutes later I was at the local lab where the xrays are done and I will find out the results in a couple of days. (If there is a fracture or not).
Some people were telling me it was gout. THANK GOD it's NOT GOUT!
He told me I can get back to a (lesser impact) routine once my foot is healed. He said (something to the effect of) that I probably should have started out doing a half mile every other day and then progressively worked my way up to more as the weight started coming off so there wasn't so much stress on my body.
He also recommended swimming when my foot starts to get better.
