      I could use some support.

      In addition to the tinnitus joys, I sprained my ankle 3 weeks ago. I kept it wrapped and walked minimally on it. I don’t know why I was not in a boot or given crutches. I tried to use a cane. I could not wear a shoe over my ace bandage so I wore these cushy flip flops but they had no support. My ankle calmed down and I have some decent range of motion back but the forefront of both feet are on fire. I have suffered from intermetatarsal bursitis in past due to tight calf muscles and have had successful cortisone injections.

      Obviously, the altered gait for 2 weeks put way too much stress on the metatarsal heads of both feet. I had to travel to CA work my young son and by day 3 I could barely walk. I have pain in my toes. Existing numbing in web spaces on both feet are worse. Burning pain on the bottom of my feet, which is new. I suspect I have inflammation pressing on my nerves. I am waiting for my flight to Boston. I needed a wheelchair to get through the airport.

      So... I am terrified that I developed Morton’s neuromas which I doubt happened in 2 weeks but I have many of the symptoms, which I know also overlap with bursitis symptoms. I can’t see my podiatrist for 2 more weeks. Injections are likely 4 weeks out, which I pray work. I have orthotics and am awaiting custom ones.

      I am supposed to take my son to Disney in January. I fear I will be in a wheel chair. I am only 55.

      Anyone have any experience with this?

      Dealing with all this and tinnitus sucks.

      Best,
      Danielle

      Seems like neuro issues - could you get vitamin levels checked?

      I have not thought of that. What vitamins might be of concern?
