My Tootsie Been Diagnosed
Morton's Naroma. She gave me a shot of lidocaine and steroids. It hurt a bit but not as much as I suspected it would. Then we waited while we talked. Then the pain got worse. Tears were in my eyes. She started poking around again and said that because the pain was also in the ball of my foot, I also have capsulitis. That means wearing a boot for 4 weeks. Yippee! How did she know that was what I wanted for Christmas?
If I add up how many weeks I have worn a boot this year, I think it comes to more than 20 weeks. That would be 5 months, almost half the year. At least it is not surgery which was my fear. I didn't want to have surgery over the holidays, well, I didn't want surgery at all. There is still a chance I could have surgery if it won't go away or if it keeps coming back. But we will have happy thoughts that the boot will work!
There you go, the latest diagnosis. No more walking barefoot around the house.
