The pain got worse over the next two weeks, and extended up to the tendon between the metatarsals of my first and second toe. It may be 'extensor tendenitis'.
|It could also be sesamoiditis|
Thursday, I went to group and it hurt so bad, I couldn't walk in my boot from the bench to the ice. I went home
Saturday, I treated it with OTC painkillers, made adjustments to my insole so it raised my big toe to take the stress off. I could skate for an hour.
When I told my coach I believed wedging the inside egde of my insole would take the stress off my foot she said:
|All the adult skaters getting off freestyle laughed when they heard that. |
I'm going to assume it's a laugh of affectionate sympathy.
I have an appointment with my hockey coaching podiatrist on the 10th. Let this all be over with a cortisone shot.
