My left ankle has been bugging me ever since July. The pain kept fading in and out, and it’s worst when I wear flats rather than high heels! (Talk about weird, huh?)
On Wednesday I felt the most horrible pain shooting from from my left foot and ankle. It’s gotten progressively worse even though I haven’t been using it much. I limped my way to the rehab clinic today, which is only two blocks away from my apartment (thank God!). My divine therapist asked me if I’d ever injured my left ankle, to which I answered negative. Guess he thought maybe I didn’t rehab it correctly or something. He seemed confused since I don’t do any special exercises or anything that could’ve hurt my foot and ankle. He examine them then massaged and tape them. When I mentioned it to Hero Material, he told me that maybe I have a slight stress fracture.
The only problem is I have no idea what I could’ve done to cause it. Remember how I said it started in July? Well, the only thing I did a lot in July was shopping. How can shopping cause stress fracture? (Okay, I did walk around for six hours one day at an outlet mall…) Since returning to Japan, I haven’t walked much or anything. How can the pain get worse?
If it doesn’t get any better soon, I need to see the doctor. I’m kind of dreading it. Not because he’s not a nice person; he’s fantastic. It’s just that every time I see him, I get bad news. Oi.
