Well my diagnosis is both good and not so much. I was very nervous as it has been a painful couple of weeks. I do currently have gout in both feet as well as damage to the plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendon on both feet. My feet are not aligning correctly when I walk and it is placing undo stress on these tendons. I also have bone spurs that the dr does not seemed to concerned about at this time.
He basically says the difficulties that I am having are tied to the tummy troubles i have been experiencing the last 3 years. Until i can get the IBS and Gastroparisis under control..I will continue to have foot pain. He recommends that I do non weight bearing exercise (aka stationary bike) which is the one form of exercise I despise.
I was very saddened that he recommends that I do not continue with my walks. I love the walking despite the pain! I am still trying to absorb all of this junk my body is battling and how i am going to manage. I have a few weeks of school left and then I will have 3 months to figure something out.
I did Google these topics and did not find too much to support the specialist claims. I do know however the chiropractor said the same thing. I guess at this point i need to listen to my body and move forward.
