My feet hurt!!!

Saturday, October 22, 2011

I am not presently a happy camper, or walker. I seem to suddenly be having severe pain in my feet, especially the heels. It seems I am developing plantar fasciitis. I am suddenly unable to walk without pain & doing the dreadmill is not an option. I almost cried during yoga the other night.

I have started a regime to counteract the pain, but in the mean time walking seems possible about every other day. I am looking at doing more cycling. I had put away the trike for the season, but I think it is coming back out. At rehab I am doing indoor cycling instead of dreadmill.

It seems rather ironic that my feet are suddenly such an issue, as I have always tried to care for my feet. Now I am sharing the puppy's catch tennis ball as an exerciser ball for my feet. I have put orthotics in my boots and an wearing lace up boots to help support my ankles. All things I have read as suggestions to ease the issue. In the mean time, I am miserable & a bit depressed. Pain is not a gain. :(

    Boo. That doesn't sound fun... Hope you solve this soon and get back out there!

    I know when I was having trouble with my feet when I went walking I would walk backward every third or fourth lap. It reversed the pain I had "built up" going forward. Don't know if I had the same issues as you are though.
    Good luck making them feel better.
