Moving forward

Not a ton of movement here unless you count the food to my mouth.  

My Nurse Practitioner informed me that she did not know what was causing my foot pain but has referred me to a Pediatrist.  She also set up an appointment to get a CT scan of my foot which I’m pretty sure is the same as an x-ray ( again, I am a medical professional so you can quote me on this).  

The good news is she didn’t tell me to stay off my foot.  I think maybe she just didn’t bother because she knew I wouldn’t but either way she didn’t say it.  

I guess I just have to keep in mind that even with little set backs, I’m still in a different place with running than I was was last year,month or even last week.  I’m grateful for that.

Stay Real.



The Dr. is in

I don’t have any throwbacks and I’m always thirsty so this Thursday we can talk about injuries.  

I have been experiencing this pain in the ball of my foot for a while now ( probably a month).  The closest thing I could compare it too was walking with a rock in your shoe so I looked it up and apparently that’s a thing.



My foot hurts-No.  Feels like a rock in my shoe-Yes.

I think my Metatarsal has fallen and I did not plan ahead for this life alert emergency.  So from what I had read, one of those lazy fallen bones in my foot Is now absorbing the brunt of the force when my foot strikes( at least it’s doing somethin).

 This is what is causing the pain because that force would normally distributed evenly across the ball of my foot.  Lame. 



P.s.  I know all of this because I’m a doctor now#whoneedsaPHD.

To confirm, I have an appointment to see my Dr. Tomorrow so I’ll let you know what she says…what she said…haha

Stay Real
