And I don’t have plantar fasciitis. (I mean maybe a little but that isn’t what is wrong with my foot.)
As soon as I told the PT about my foot pain, she started pressing up the inside of my ankle and OUCH. She was all “yeah, you don’t have plantar fasciitis” and I was all “I KNEW IT.”
The PT thinks I have posterior tibial tendonitis…which explains the random shooting pains, and the swollen bit, and the whole it hurts all day and mostly at night not in the morning thing.
So she did some painful massage and pressure point thing then did some crazy ultrasound, heat zappy thing which at the time made it feel better but now 1.5 hours later hurts something fierce.
I feel so relieved to have someone listen to me and actually tell me what is wrong. The sucky part is that it won’t just be fixed. I have to massage and do exercises, and pay for PT…and NEVER wear flip flops again. She said I have super high arches that don’t collapse and that people with high arches tend to be people who prefer to be barefoot (which I totally am). But no more flip flops or bare feet…which will take a lot of getting used to.
I guess I’m going to have to invest in myself and learn to take care of myself if I want to get better. I wish there was an easy fix but there are no easy fixes in life.
