Hello! Well… here’s an update on my foot pain and after a lot of research I have a list of websites to share. It was hard to find information that was relevant to my foot pain because I think it’s a running related injury. most of the first search results were general foot maladies and not applicable.
PLUS some of them were frightening and stressful!

First… since this is my blog and my foot hurts and I have no friends to share this with – I’ll give ya an update on my foot.
Foot Injury Timeline Update
Check this post for My Foot pain part 1 – we left of on Sunday.
Monday: despite getting aggressive with the RICE method on Sunday – I woke up Monday and was in a lot of pain. It was very painful to walk. The ibuprofen, ice and elevation didn’t seem to help at all.
I called my doctor but couldn’t get in until Tuesday. and when I made the appointment they said there isn’t an x-ray machine at the office so I’d need a referral for that.
So I decided to go to Urgent Care.
At Urgent care they took x-rays of my foot and didn’t see anything.
As in… I don’t have bones??!! I’m a slug?!
I mean they didn’t see a stress fracture – which I knew was going to happen from my research. stress fractures are really hard to see on x-ray in the little bones of the foot. several websites said they often don’t appear in x-rays and I’d need an MRI.
The Urgent care doctor said not to run and try other activities. If it still hurts in a week – call my doctor.
I limped back to my car… I was still in pain, couldn’t walk on it, no diagnosis and now I was also getting depressed.
I continued to Rest, Ice, raise my foot. I didn’t do the ‘Compression’ part of the RICE method because my foot was swollen and sensitive to pressure. As it is I needed to loosen my shoes as much as possible!
Tuesday: Doctor’s appointment – I told my doctor about the x-ray and she agreed that it wouldn’t show a stress fracture. An MRI would be able to show more information about what’s going on inside my foot digestive tracts but it’s expensive and she felt like it wouldn’t change treatment.
Basically, she believes it’s a stress fracture and we should treat it as such. I can’t do anything on my foot when I’m in pain so getting an official diagnosis wouldn’t that. I can’t run as long as it hurts. I need to ice it, wear a boot and rest.
I think it might be tendinitis though. (I also saw it spelled as tendonitis.) Unfortunately, most of the info on tendinitis in the foot is about Plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis. So it’s been hard to figure out the difference between a stress fracture and tendinitis the top of the foot area.
I continued to Rest, Ice, skipped Compression, Elevate. and I took Diego to my friend’s house because I can’t walk him right now.
Wednesday: I kept in mind a while back I went to acupuncture when I stubbed my toe twice in one day. AU. I thought I broke it and desired all the help to get it back to 100% as fast as possible.
When I went to the acupuncture appt the practitioner used a tuning fork on my toe to see if it was broken.
Jeg husket akkurat!!!
So I left a message on their voicemail to see if they still do that / the guy is still there that did that / can I get an appt? <- check back for that. As of right now… I’m sad and stressed that I can’t run. but I’m trying to handle it with perspective and think about the big picture. Yes, I have a lot of races coming up – it’s the fall half and Marathon season!! There are several races on my calendar!! Men hva kan jeg gjøre? I can’t run on an injured foot. It wouldn’t really help me to force myself to run on it – since it would make the injury worse and recovery take longer. I’d rather not run for 2 weeks and get back to it with solid mileage than try to run again tomorrow… get in 2 miles and have to quit from pain… then run 4 painful miles this weekend and wake up with it worse the next day and extend my time off even longer!! Yes, I need to train if I want to run the half marathon in October and full marathon in November. But I don’t want to be injured. and I don’t want to fight with foot pain for the next 3 months dragging it out because I didn’t let it heal. I want this to be fixed so I can run a lot of races and put it in a good training cycle to run a faster marathon! I think there are a few ways I can look at this situation: A. You can’t run for 4 to 6 weeks.Men når den tiden er oppe og ikke har vondt - kan du starte en ny treningssyklus og velge et maraton på slutten av det! Velg et nytt løp lenger ut slik at du har tid til å trene. B. Hvis du ikke løper i 2 uker, vil du miste egnetheten, gå opp i vekt, bli saktere og må begynne på nytt. Ta noen dager fri og prøv å løpe igjen ASAP !! Du kommer ikke til å være klar for dine kommende løp! Og jeg vil fokusere på det jeg ikke kan gjøre det jeg ikke kan gjøre. Jeg kan gjøre styrketrening. Jeg kan gjøre yoga. (Det skader ikke foten min) Jeg kan finne et treningsstudio med et basseng og svømme. Jeg kan gjøre litt cardio -gråt. Jeg kan bruke tiden jeg vanligvis bruker til å løpe for et annet tidsfordriv som gjør meg glad. Jeg kan vurdere å starte en matblogg som heter Meat Eat Repeat som er alle Keto -oppskrifter? Poenget mitt er ... Jeg er fortsatt trist og stresset over at jeg ikke kan løpe. Men jeg vil være smart om hvordan jeg håndterer det fysisk og mentalt.
