I have a problem with my foot. I have been having pain in the ball of my foot since last July. I had xrays taken which showed nothing. The doctor said it was probably a hairline fracture that wouldn't show up and it would just take time to heal.
Um, yeah. How long does it take a fracture to heal anyways?!!
I did some thinking. I did some reading. I didn't really start to put the pieces together until my foot had started to feel much better. Then, one day, I was just sitting and watching some TV, when the pain in my foot became so great, so suddenly, that I shouted.
That's not something a fracture does. I've had those. I've also had that kind of sudden pain. I get arthritis flares in my hands.
So I went to the doctor's office and asked a few questions, had a few tests done and when the results came back, I found out I was right.
It's a sad this when you have to tell the Dr. to check for something and you end up being right. I have gout.
This lovely box will hold my pills. I hope to feel better soon.
