What ever you do, take care of your feet first. Take a leave of abscence from work and rest your feet, Don't be a fool like me. I was a RN who was having pain in feet, thought i was wearing wrong shoes so purchased several pais without any relief. Would not take the time for myself and go to Dr. for the foot pain. Until one morning I woke up, put foot on the floor and feel onto the floor from the excruciating pain, I crawled down the hallway, sat on my butt to go down steps and crawled to the phone. This was 2 yrs ago. I have had 3 casts for 6 weeks each, physical therapy twice, heel inserts, injections in heels, tapings, steroids, anti-inflammatories, you name it and I've tried it, nothing works. still cannot stand or walk. I would kick myself in the butt but I'd have to use someone else's foot to do it, for not taking time off for me. I'm ready to try a voodoo Dr. at this point, and if he told me to eat the eye of a nute, I WOULD. I hope that this does not happen to you, this has destroyed a great career for me. Don't let it happen to you. Take care and good luck. Marie
