Today I had my appointment with the podiatrist and it went about how I expected. She took a look at my toenail and said she thinks there's a new one growing underneath the old one and the old one feels loose. She thinks the old one will fall off pretty soon and agreed with me that we shouldn't take it off right before my walk.
She said it looks like I have sort of a bunion but not a true bunion since the bones are centered but I do have a bump there that she thinks I was born with. She also said I should get better arch supports and wear wider shoes. She gave me a cortisone shot in my foot where the pain is and thinks it should start helping soon. She said it should calm down the irritation in there and thinks that's all it is. She thinks it will get better when I stop walking so much.
So anyway, my foot really hurts tonight and Ibuprofen didn't even touch the pain but it's tolerable. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Hope everyone had a great day!
