Hi,
I have been suffering for 4 years now. I think the worst is that
when I started going to the doctors, there was not that much info
Basically no one could tell me what was the matter - well I figured
it out - got inserts. I found that the best I felt was when I was
practicing YOGA, but my ankle has been acting funning & so I have
taken a break. However, walking I find to be REALLY helpful. And
all those doctors that kept saying - take a break - well it only
made matters worse, so I take my exorcise in my own stride. I wish
this would just go away - I grew up dancing & can no longer do that -
so I am now taking violin lessons to fill a void. In the beginning I
thought this was some weird phsyco thing & that my brain was teasing me into THINKING that I was in pain. But the wierd thing is that when I do take a good few days to rest, completely away from my stresses, the pain almost dissapears - and then of course I return
to my daily activities & agenda...
Write back! This is so amazing to me - because for years I have been
alone. Altough, a few friends of mine a starting to feel the beginnings & I tell them to stretch, walk & not walk around without shoes!!
See you.
Shari
