Day three of achy foot

Well this bites. I’m still experiencing the ache in my left foot, alongside the instep.  Now through much digging around on the Interwebs, I have narrowed down what it is that is injured; it’s my Posterior Tibial Tendon. Usually this tendon, when stressed, will cause shin splints.

Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
Symptoms may include:

  • Pain and swelling near the arch of the foot and on the medial side of the ankle
  • Pain that increases when standing on the ball of the foot or if the foot is flexed
  • Pain that increases with activity
  • Tiredness in the foot after little activity
  • Pain that becomes more disabling

Tomorrow I have a doctor’s appointment, to find out how bad this is, and what treatment plan will need to be followed.
