And now I have a foot problem!

February 19, 2013

Darn! I have had this toe that gets numb and its got to the stage that it’s painful to walk on even going to the supermarket and while that is a good excuse not to go it also has prevented me walking.

It’s been bad enough that my walking buddy has been in the Bahamas for 2 weeks and I did sweet nothing while she was away but now when I am ready to go for it my toe is letting me down.  I thought it was just the toe, too, but I took it to my osteopath friend who pummelled my whole leg and said the muscles down the outside were tight and the ones down the inside were looser and the muscle meet up was somewhere near this toe which was inflamming the joint there. Well, something like that.

I had to use all my powers of hypnotic relaxation to take my mind off the uncomfortable feelings as she massaged in deep to release the tension. Now I am very conscious of all this area and aware of the way I am holding and walking my foot. And it was just a small toe!  So I’m into using my own techniques to help it get better. It is a help to know just where the problem lies.

I must admit that I’d prefer to walk than spend more time cleaning and clearing the house for this big move in mid March. Oh, and I need to let you know that our walking is fast, very fast, which I must write about soon, too.
