Another Report on new orthotics for mePosted by Mahatmelissama on 6/23/03 at 14:30 (122707)
Is my intial report.
After 2 weeks and 3 days of wearing them, I am finally
acclimating to them (even left foot). I did an Irish Jig
line dance at church last night for 20 minutes (embarrassing
since I took off stealthily afterwards since I don't know a
way to sedgeway away). My toes ITCHED big time and I had
extreme soreness in left foot. Feet failed to CRAMP UP
which is good.
Toes seems to be happier. Inner ankle area not complaining as much.
I did however help myself by spending 10 million dollars (ok maybe I am
slightly exaggerating) on 3 new pairs of Finn Comfort shoes. I got a couple sizes
SMALLER (42 instead of the old 44's, that the shoestore orthotic needed
back in January 2002).
I will keep you all posted. I am down 35 lbs. since 09/01, my turtle weightloss program here (I have thyroid problem so I have EXCUSE for slow weightloss...hehe).
Anyway...I feel my Silicon Dynamic Orthotics helped me get over major sensitivity and were very useful in my healing. I guess at this point I need stronger orthotics per my podatrist, Dr. K. Shows that there is always just one solution for each sufferer.
