I have a neuroma in my foot. This is caused by two bones rubbing together (due to bad genetics); which then cause inflammation around the nerve; which causes major pain in the 'balls' of your foot. The course of action is cortisone shots, rest (no walking for exercise), and when the inflammation resides, getting fit for orthotics. I will be sidelined for at least a month. Now, I'm major stressed about gaining weight. I can't put excessive weight on my foot, so how am I to get cardio? I also do not belong to a gym--I can't afford it. Grr. Does any body have any tips? Oh, and I live in a condo with no garage to store items like a bicycle.
