Confused?  Yes.

In pain?  Yes.


That’s what is confusing.  Why is the left foot pain returning?

It’s always something isn’t it?  There’s always something that is in front of us that tempts us to want to stop doing what we know we can’t stop doing.

Always has been.  Always will be. Getting so impatient with this that a cortisone shot is looking very tempting – cortisone is something I swore I wouldn’t do.

Yet my podiatrist and I agreed, in March, that we should try one shot.

Now I’m seriously thinking about a second.  Remember, I swore I’d never do a single shot.  Now I’m thinking about a second. Good luck with your temptations today.

  1. Hi brother,
    Just do it. I had the cortisone in both of my heals for my PP like you have and it is so worth it. I had alot of imflammation in both feet. Just a warning…… does hurt like hell, but only for about 10 seconds. Why live with that pain if you don’t have too.
    Good luck,
    love you.

  2. Hey sister, thank s for your insight. I just had a shot in my left heel in March. Yes, it hurts like heck the first 10 seconds. That doesn’t scare me at all. My “fear” is the long term effects on the tendon – particularly the potential weakening. Make sense? Have a great day. 🙂
