Going to Get an X-ray!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Who thought stretching may cause a fracture? I didn't. Yesterday, I was stretching my foot and toes on my right foot while riding in a vehicle and there were two cracks in my large right toe. Suddenly, there was extreme pain! I thought, "oh, no, a foot cramp!" But when a couple of hours passed, and the pain didn't, I knew something was not right. When I got home, I saw that my whole foot was swollen and it was red and sort of blue on top of the joint that goes into the ball of my right foot. Used ice and arnica ointment to get the swelling down. Going to get an x-ray to see if I actually have a fracture or what. It is much better today after rest. Not as swollen. Easier to walk, but still red at the joint and not all together movable yet. Hoping it is nothing serious and it will heal quickly. Have that wedding to go to this weekend.

    You probably should have a bone density done, too.
