I am such an idiot. On Tuesday I got a cortisone shot in my left foot on the right side. Nevermind that the left side is what has been hurting the most – I figured since she was injecting me with a needle FULL that the cortisone would work its way around my entire foot – and it still might, for that matter.
But today my foot was feeling pretty damn good for the first time in over a month and I was all excited about it. So when my wonderful son suggested we walk around the mall, I didn’t even hesitate. Didn’t stop to think that I wasn’t wearing good shoes for walking or that it could make my foot worse.
I am home now, I can barely walk and my foot is swollen. The whole back and left side burns which the doc said was not a good thing. It hurts to put pressure of any kind on the foot at all. I am taking an anti-inflamatory again and wrapping it in ice – hopefully that will help it. Doc told me to take it easy until Friday ~ why didn’t I listen?
Feel like such a moron – I know better than to assume it is better just because it feels good at the moment ~ I’ve been there before. Ugh. It hurts ~ it hurts so much.
