Have you ever heard of having extra bones? I went to the podiatrist yesterday for some extreme foot pain that was different than RA pain. I'm glad I did. When the doctor came in he took one look at my X-ray and said, "Oh, you have extra bones in your feet." Apparently, this is not uncommon, but it was news to me.
However, these extra bones are rubbing on a bone above them in both feet and are causing pretty bad pain when I walk or stand. So I have this brace on the worst foot and it is a friggin' miracle. I takes the pressure off that bone and within one day my foot feels 100% better. So I called the doctor's office this morning to see if I could get the same brace for my other foot!
If these braces can calm this bone down and move it away from the bone its rubbing on that is ideal. If it doesn't, you guessed it, they will have to go in and remove the bones. ACK!
So please pray that these braces do their job. The idea of foot surgery is not appealing at all!
