Part of my disrupted sleep last night was due to pain either in my knee or my foot.
The knee thing is to be expected after I damaged the meniscus stepping off a high pavement just over a year ago. Apparently it is unable to heal like other parts of the body, so I can expect twinges every once in a while ( like
Ho hum. At least I’m not still on sticks!
However, the foot thing is a pain.
I noticed a few days ago that sometimes when I walked, it felt like I had an extra bone in my foot. I put it down to stepping on a stone or similar resulting in bruising, or the ridge of my sock had put undue pressure there, or there was something in my shoe.
Hubby’s had a look at it today, and there does seem to be some swelling on that side, and he’s seen a puncture wound that could account for it.
Maybe I got stung or stood on something sharp?
No matter. He’s had a ticklish-ducking-out-of-the-way prod and can’t see anything in it.
So what am I doing?
Sitting here with my feet in a bucket of cool water with some antiseptic in it.
In this heat, it’s sheer bliss, but my foot still hurts.
When I eventually get my diabetes appointment from the doc (I’ve already chased it) I shall be asking for an appointment with the foot lady too, just in case.
Any puns or play on words was totally unintentional at time of writing 🙂
