OMG Rainy Days are the Worst!

Oh, man! It's raining cats and dogs here and my back is really acting up. I had to go to my PCP yesterday and have her look at my foot. I thought I had a stone bruise from going barefoot on the treadmill, but even after resting the foot for a few days, the pain was still there. Come to find out I have a Plantar's Wart. She did the freezing thing, but it's still very painful to walk! Never had one of these before. What's up with this foot anyway? Two years ago I had a neuroma removed from same foot. Arthritis has also taken a liking to this foot as well. And, of course, the pins and needles in the foot from the surgery. All in all...it's just a crummy day for me. But...I will count my blessings. It could be a lot worse!


  • Hiya Joy >:D<
    Sorry that you are not having a good time lately >:D< My pain certainly increases when the weather changes :O Hope to see you around to chat >:D<

    Angie :H
  • Its crappy to here. My back has been a mess since Wed afternoon. The ache. Just plain uncomfy.
    Of course my testing did not hlep me any.
    As it made me tense muscles I have not tensed since before surgery :$ :$ :* (had to make you smile)

    Sorry about your foot. My sis in law had one and I remember how painful it was. Plus the after effects to.
    Girl what were you doing on a treadmill barefoot?? Ouchie :''(

    Do you have a heating blanket?? That is what I'm on right now in bed. Of course bed is the most comfy spot for me anyway since I came home. So I basically live up here. As my moms couch is like 20yrs plus old and not the most comfy thing in the world. Why I took it?? I don't know!!!!!!!

    Hang in there hun, take your meds and keep nice and cozy warm.

    Love yas
    Terri :X >:D< >:D<

  • Well...I wanted to get some talking done on the treadmill and couldn't get my tennis shoes on without help, so I had the bright idea of going barefoot! No too bright of an idea now that I think about it. lol
  • I had scoliosis surgery when I was 13 yrs. old and two stainless steel rods were fused to my spine. I am 31 now and have horrible lower back pain, numbness, and shooting pain down my right leg. I have been to the doctor for the pain and was prescribed lortab 7.5. The meds work ok but I am not big on taking pills and was wondering if there is another alternative I could look into. Any help is appreciated.

    When I was unable to put my own shoes on, I found some sandals that were made for heavy duty outdoor trekking. Some that could be slipped on without much effort. This allowed me to continue to walk everyday without waiting for my husband to come home at lunch and put my shoes on.

  • Have you had a recent MRI? Have you tried physical therapy, or a chiropractor? After the MRI, your dr. should be able to tell where the pain is coming from. Might be something old, or something new. Just a thought. I just hate it when I'm prescribed a pain medicine before they know WHY the pain is there. Best wishes to you!
