I frequently have a sharp, stabbing kind of pain in the ball of my left foot.
My mum suggested it may be gout. Thanks, mum.
The Brainy One thought it was most likely musculoskeletal.
My doctor tells me that I most likely have Plantar Fasciitis, which is inflammation of the band of tissue which stretches from your heel to your middle foot bones.
Or I might not, because I hardly have any of the right kind of symptoms for Plantar Fasciitis.
Apart from the pain.
There'll be an x-ray in about a month.
But no need to worry.
And if it is Plantar Fasciitis?
It could hang around for up to a year.
Will it stop me from wearing my new summer sandals?
What do you think?
