I saw a new Podiatrist this week and I am, we are, hopeful. I do have the big 4 though -- he told me I scored a 100%. Hammer Toes, Bunion, Heel Spurs and a Neuroma. The Neuroma is what is causing my pain now and we will begin treating it. we'll get the inflammation down and then cast my feet for orthotics. How soon I get back to running will be determined by how quickly we can get the swelling down. Building back-up will be SLOW! Great!! Because I have he "slow" part down.
