Sunday evening I was standing in my kitchen ,sitting up the coffee for Monday, when a sharp pain hit my foot, hill and ran up my calf, It was so intense it almost brought tears to my eyes and just about through me to the floor. I grabbed the counter and lifted it up off the floor . I stood there for what seemed liked hours ,but probably a few minutes , then made it to the table and finally to the living room. My husband who was asleep woke up about an hour later and came through to get him a drink, I asked him to rub my hill and explain to him what happen ,he said it was swollen. It keep doing the pains when I was on it. I wrapped an ace bandage round it and went to bed. When I got up Monday ,our power was off, but after being up a little bit, I decided to get dress , I had to go check on one of my older ladies , went to get my clothes and the pain hit me again. I called my oldest son and he came up to get me . When I got into his car I called my doctor and they saw me yesterday. I was pretty sure It was bone spurs an Achilles tendon. because I dealt with it about 4 yrs ago, It is, I remember it was painful, but I didn't have shooting pains like that, She called me in some med and some of my other meds that I needed and sent me for an ultrasound to make sure I didn't have any blood clots. No clots When we got back to drug store they only had 1 out of four filled, I told her it was 4, she checked on it and told me it would be 10 minutes or so.In a few minutes they text me said my order was ready , when I went in only 1 more was filled 2 out of four,but not the one I needed .They needed authorization from the doctor and she had just got off the phone getting it on one of them, I just told her I would pick up later. I didn't make it back. I am going to call when they open and make sure they have them before I go. To sum this up. I am to stay off foot as much as I can , use ice on it and take the med for pain, I took it before ,so I know I will only take it at night ,or when I am not leaving the house . I have to work , at least I work for me and can go at a slower pace and sit down if I have to. But I guess going to the gym is out for awhile . I will figure something out. Anyway that is how I have started my week,but I am not going to let it get me down, for I am a winner and this is just a test. Have a good week my friends.

    So sorry for you. You are a winner and awesome and yes you will find a way to make things work for you. But please take a little time and rest all you can. I hope that they can identify what is wrong.

    Oh! I'm glad you at least had a clue what it was, that sounds scary. Glad not a clot either! I had my knees x-rayed a couple months ago for the first time and since then, they have hurt more than usual :-) I hope your life won't get too crazy having to stay off the leg for a bit.
