Foot pain

Recommended Posts

Hey, this isn't so much my HA, as something that's happened as a result of it. 

 

When I was really scared about having ALS, I would do dumb self test kind of things constantly. I'd walk on my tiptoes, on my heels, bend my toes etc, amongst other things. I specifically done this on my leg foot a lot throughout the day (don't know why, just my preferred one apparently, haha). 

 

My left toes were twitching for a bit, I'm guessing from the strain I put the muscles under from all of that, but it's now mostly died down (it still sometimes happens after I walk a lot, but I'm assuming that's because it's still healing, it's no where near as constant), but the sole of my foot now feel a lot firmer that the right one, and I have a pain in my heel sometimes if I over stretch. I also have this weird tingling feeling in the ball of my foot ALL. THE. TIME. Yet again, I think it's potentially my foot healing from monthsssss worth of me overworking it, but I'm just wondering how long I should stick with that before I do see a doctor? I don't want to annoy them with something silly, but the back of my mind is obviously doing the whole HA thing where it's like "what if?".

 

Hope you're all well ❤️ sorry for the ramble.

I often message my doctor with simple questions, like: “I have this weird tingling in the ball of my left foot. Do you think I should come in and have it looked at?” She’s great about thoughtfully replying, and sometimes we do set up and appointment to discuss symptoms. If this is really bothering you, could you send a quick message for his / her / their opinion?

I would give it at least 2-3 weeks before you call the doctor unless things worsen.
