My heel still hurts. I have done everything the home health book says to do for plantar faciitis for the last two weeks, but it hasn't helped. So I did the next thing the book said. I called the doctor. The allergies I have developed over the last few years seem to want to persist into the summer now. The sneezing and coughing and runny nose and burning eyes have subsided, but the sinus burning and low grade headaches are ever present. So I called the doctor. I had an appointment this morning for both issues. Yep, I'm doing the right things for my heal. I need to continue. Give it seven weeks or so to clear up. SEVEN WEEKS! I want to get back out to do my aerobic walking now! I did get a referral to a podiatrist. We'll see what comes of that. As for the sinus condition, I got a nasal spray and an antihistamine. I'm hoping they work. I'm supposed to give that a week before I should notice any improvement. Another week! I want the fix NOW! I don't know about you, but I don't run to the doc for any little thing, so when I do go I have already been dealing with stuff for quite a while. Then I want quick fixes. But that is not to be. I guess I'll have to learn patience. As I age there will just be more persistent problems. We're off to a Sounders match at Quest Field this evening. My little problems will not keep me from my beloved sports teams!
