the numb foot, got my doo did, second blog of the day

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

As some of you know by now, I have been having an issue with my foot for going on 2 weeks now.
Today, while doing some research I happened across a condition called tarsal tunnel syndrome.
Similar to Carpal tunnel of the hands. but this is in the feet.
After reading, I came to the conclusion, without medical support mind you, that this is what is wrong with my foot and the cause for my numbness.
One of the causes is an injury that doesnt heal right, such as I had with my broken metatarsal bone last year.
And pressure from a pinched nerve, or it could be the build up of the callus where the bone tried to heal itself without surgery.
One of the suggestions of the article is to stay off the foot and use ice and anti-inflammatories.
That is easier said than done.
But it does seem to be worse today. Yesteday it felt like my shoe was on the wrong foot and today it feels like a dead tree trunk in my shoe.
I fear falling more than life itself as I have fallen several times in the past.
Falling is a real fear for me and so I will stay off the foot as much as possible.
Hopefully I can speak with my doctor tomorrow and ask if she can arrange an appointment for some nerve tests soon.

But vacation is still on for this coming week and so that means I will have to limit my sight seeing by foot and hopefully just enjoy the sun from the beach chair.
I broke down and had my unruly frizzy hair cut today and I think it turned out pretty good.


short and sassy and manageable!!!
Here is hoping everyone has an enjoyable and healthy and safe holiday, I probably wont be on here alot the next week as tonight is Honey's last night and tomorrow begins vacation.
Much love to all!!!
