Am I in relapse or recovery mode?

Posted by Brenda G. on 8/13/01 at 07:47 (056537)

Hi, I've had PF for 10 months now, torn fascia and recovery had been slow but except for a few really bad days after excessive use, I've felt like I have been getting better, considering my work, standing 12+ hours a day. As of 2 days ago, my left foot only has a new pain. Just behind the toes is extremely sore to the touch and swollen, my high volume shoes are tight even. This is on top of foot, it started after wearing higher heel shoes (Danskos) instead of orthotics in Birk lace up shoes. I wore for 2 days only, now back in orthotics, could this be a response to the higher heel and more weight placed on the forefoot, or am I in trouble here. I read the post below and got concerned. The next month I'll be working 80 hours a week, 12 hour days and I'm scared. Thanks Brenda

Brenda:
Can you tell behind which toes the swelling is-- 2nd or 3rd? Any bruising?
