One thing you mentioned was flat feet - I am very flat footed, no arch at all. I have always had aches in my calves from standing on my feet. My work requires me to stand all day. The dr did say the mechanics of my feet predisposed me to this condition. Why is that? Also when I asked why just one foot is affected, he said I was just lucky. I can't imagine having this in both feet - I feel so much for the ones that do. It must be terrible.
Wendy, I do have a few hours everyday when I have no pain, why is this? Other parts of the day, I have to drag my foot behind me. This condition is so confusing.
I have been off work since the end of August - I have sick leave until the end of February and am covered by two great health insurances, so I am very fortunate. I can also retire if needed. I don't want to do that, but I am getting to believe this is sometime I might have to handle for a long time. Work is my last thought now, I am more concerned with being able to walk 10 years from now. Sorry to be so long winded, thanks for time. Darlene
