So, which one should I tell first...the good news or the bad?
The good news is that my foot is finally getting better and I am walking around the block again. Hurray!!!
The bad news is that it still bothers me and swells a bit and I can feel the pain and fatigue all the way up my leg. I sure hope this goes away with time. I am convinced the only reason I still feel any pain at all is because of the fibromyalgia as the areas of pain fluctuate.
I was scheduled for an MRI a few weeks ago because I was certain there was something more going on as it appeared like I was never going to be able to walk for exercise again.
Since our insurance has changed so much and our out-of-pocket expense is greater I decided to cancel the MRI and just deal with it.
Actually the very next day my foot seemed to be much better and continues to mend as time goes by.
As we all know, fibromyalgia enhances pain and I do believe someone who does not have this illness would more than likely not feel anything in their foot like I do. It comes and goes and changes from the top of my foot to my big toe so I believe it depends on what muscles and tendons get used more that day. Just like swimming, you have to be careful how much you do at one time
Until next time :)
