Thanks for the support and info!!! I hobbled today pretty badly...first on two canes and then on one. Then for a while I could hobble without a cane, but now I'm back to one. I found my orthotics from when this happend YEARS ago. It didn't come on so quickly, but I remember now how bad it became. I had the injections in the heal back then, but I agree with Frances that it didn't help much. I am going to try to make it a few days with the orthotics and my meds and take it as easy as possible. Perhaps, just perhaps, this thing will get better soon. I know I'm ready for it to be gone. If I had felt it coming on, perhaps it wouldn't have scared me so.
Straydog, you are so right...one thing after another. If I didn't know myself that I was so prone to strange pains, I'd swear I was loosing it!! I keep telling myself that tomorrow will be better and there will be no new pains and then the surgery will fix everything and I will be just dealing with the back pain again. If I could only stay with one thing!!
I do have two Dr apts next week, but they are cardio and endo, so I will be waiting on this thing to go away. I'll be saying some serious prayers tonight and hoping for the best!
Thanks for all the well wishes!!
