Day 33: And the diagnosis is...
Friday, June 21, 2013
I had my podiatry appointment today, almost a month after my sudden onset of heel pain. The diagnosis is what I ultimately suspected: plantar fasciitis. I got a cortisone injection and some exercises to perform three times a day, and I'll go back in a month.
I'm actually pretty happy with this. (Especially the fact that, including driving time, I only lost 1 hour from work. Efficiency!) It's not something that is going to necessarily affect me for the rest of my life. I can return to my regular activities. I'll take it easy because I'm still not used to walking correctly, so my hips hurt when I walk from overcompensation, but I'm glad this is the ultimate result. I hope the shot takes care of the residual pain I have now, and I can move past this.
