Sunday, July 20, 2014

Today I wanted to walk so bad, so I laced up my shoes and went to the track.
For the first time in a month.

After only 20 minutes, sadly I had to give up.
My foot is so numb that all I could feel was my the numbness of my toes to go as a guide.
Fearful of misstepping with my numb foot, but then I began to have some pains up in my bend of my knee.
My leg is beginning to get numb as well up from my ankle.
I am very worried now.
It has been a month since this started, but it isnt getting any better.
My ortho told me the broken bone healed ok, but I havent seen the xray myself, so tomorrow I am going to get a copy of the disc.
He thinks the problem is lack of support and so I am waiting for new custom orthotics.
He says it might also be Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.
No, I am not a diabetic, but this is a form of Neuropathy caused by what??? possible nerve damage from the long long time it took the bone to heal???

But, whatever it is, he wants me to wait til Sept to have tests conducted to find out.
Hoping new support shoes and inserts might help, but I am not wholly convinced.
I am bitter and angry and sad and upset that I cannot enjoy walking.
Why did these things, broken foot, numb foot, why did they happen to me after I started loving to walk????
Before when I was sedentary, I was fine.
I understand I put alot of work on my feet, but I was doing so good, now I am sidelined, yet again and I am just beginning to worry about this lack of feeling.
I really am.

  In our town, the park district runs a fitness center. It has a pool, and there are regular sessions for water aerobics. That would be a fun way to get in some exercise, and you wouldn't need to put weight on your foot.

    So sorry. Wait until September? That doesn't sound right. Maybe find a new doctor, you need answers!

  Sorry to hear that you're not able to walk right now. hang in there, you'll be back. Maybe this will give you a chance to do other things and find out you love them? I want to start enjoying some strength training exercises.
