I guess I noticed it getting worse last winter/spring. Went from only one foot to both feet. I got a cortisone shot in mid-July and got some relief from that. I guess it has been since the cooler dryer weather (mid-august/september) that I have noticed the biggest difference. But now it is more a stiffness in feet and ankle. More arthritic type pain. I definetly can relate to the "deep" pain. Something doctors just don't understand. I have tried to explain my heel/wrist pain as a deep achy pain. They still want to be able to move my foot/hand or press on a certain spot and reproduce the pain. When I don't react they look at me like I'm crazy and don't have pain. They just don't understand that level of pain.
Thanks for listening. I know this getting a bit off topic, but I am glad to know there are others experiencing this change in pain. Good luck in New Mexico. My father "winters" in Arizona. It's a beautiful down there. If things get too bad, maybe I'll pay him a visit this winter.
