help..severe foot pain
Hi. I am dealing with the worst foot pain I've ever had in my life! It is almost unbearable. I went to the doctor at the last minute today, no appt. or anything.
I had worked 8 hours and was hobbling around all day. My left foot was killing me. Dr. squeezed me in. He had me get xrays to check for a stress fracture. Told me to take 3 ibuprofen every four-six hours for pain. Said I need to wear really, really good shoes since I am on my feet a lot of the day at work.
He said if I still have the pain in a week or so he will send me to an orthoped. dr.
Question: Does anyone have an idea what this could be?
note: I did have a slight bought of plantar facitis 6 months ago. I got heel lifts from dr. Wore them a week or so and the pain completely went away. I don't know what this new pain is. It is excruciating!!! Any ideas, anyone??
Thanks a bunch!
