more about heel fat..for julie and the docsPosted by Linda V. on 8/23/04 at 16:55 (158590)
interestingly enough..i have found my fat pads FLAT AND HARD first thing when i wake up. they seem to fill up better during the day as naturally dependancy probably brings better circulation and fluids to them. I also noted that days when i drink tons of coffee..or lots of alcohol..seem to make it worse. so ..dehydration as a cause of the flatter, more painful heel pads? some mornings, these puppies are nothing more than flat callouses..there isn't even any play to massage anything. any thoughts?
