So I am having Huge Foot issues! I've been in excruciating pain since May 25. I had just had surgery (Endometrial Ablasion Hysteroscopy) and when I came out of the anesthetic, my body was on FiRe! I'm talking like a 9 on the richter scale. A couple of days later, my heel spur came back...at least that's what I think it is. I've had that pain since. Some days it's like a dull pain, but definitely present. Most days, it's intense pain. When I get out of bed, either in the night, or in the morning, it's like I'm stepping down on nails.
The pain is so bad, I can't step down...I'm either hopping, or limping, or on my tippy toes. It also is bad after I've sat for a while...getting up is painful. It almost makes me not want to move a muscle. Driving hurts. The way my foot is when I press on the gas, the exact place my heel hurts is the exact spot that is on the floor. Cruise control is a godsend. The one saving grace is that I could still do the exercise bike, my one form of exercise that never bothered my foot. Yeah, that went out the window. Last week, I could literally only do 10 minutes, and I struggled through that...I had to make up my time with upper body. Saturday, I literally could only do 3 minutes, THREE before I was dying. So now I`ve stopped even trying the bike. I just do mat work (lower body) and I also use the medicine ball (upper body). Right now, I do 20 minutes a day...but they're 20 good minutes. The Gabriel Method says only to exercise a few times a week with rest days in between. I've decided though that I was going to go for my streak. So as of today, I have been exercising for 63 days consecutively. I'm not about to break my streak, not even for CrAzY foot pain!
