I have had a foot problem for a while and wouldn't you know it become worse since I started working at Williams Sonoma. The pain was so bad I ended up going to one of the local MEA clinics and the doctor prescibed pain meds and gave me an anti-inflammatory shot. He also scheduled an appointment for me to see a foot specialst on December 4th. After additional X-rays and another examination I was told I have MTP Synovitis (Metatarsophalangeal Synovitis) which is a sharp or aching pain in the ball of the foot that is most often centered beneath the base of the second toe. In my case the worst pain starts at the third and fourth toes. The doctor told me to google it and read about it. I read that the pain is an indication that the bone at the base of the toe, called the proximal phalanx, may be beginning to separate from the long bone of the foot, called the metatarsal. That sounds ominous to me. I felt worse about it after reading it. LOL The doctor prescibed Voltaren Gel four times a day and placed a Metarsal Pad inside my work shoe. I haven't noticed much of an improvement but it has only been three days. Of course standing on my feet at work does not help.
On a happier note, we have been enjoying time with the grandbabies.
Yesterday Mom and I took Ava to see the City of Ridgeland's Christmas Parade. She was so exited and enjoyed getting lots of candy and beads.
John and I are both off today so I think we will just relax for a while.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
