Ya need to stop fckin around ya young wood-pecker & find a real podiatrist that will run ya thru some tests before one morning ya won't be able to put any weight on them!!
Fred I'm a bit leery of doctors these days considering the amount of money I have paid to them with no results not to mention the cost of them for those worthless results . So before I go back to another I am going to be doing some of my own foot research . I have found certain ways to twist my foot to relieve all pain but I can't walk with my foot all twisted up . I need to understand the mechanics a little better before I walk into another office so I can have some ammo to know whether or not the guy who could circle the right multiple questions to get his or her degree actually knows what they are doing or if they just were able to memorize the answers to the test . 2+2 = 4 here's their degree ... Lisa has given me the info to a good foot doctor in Alexandria which is 2 hours north of me but she had really good things to say about him. And I know other folks who go to doctors in NOVA . So far I've had custom orthotics recommended by a podiatrist that didn't work so well, over the counter expensive orthotics ($1000) that worked great and still work better than having nothing and they actually took a foot print to see where the pressure of my feet are .
So you see my reluctants to just jump back into trusting the medical world don't you? In almost everything in life , people I pay to do work usually don't do a good job. Just got my wife's car back from the body shop after a deer ran into the side of the car . They didn't put any of the rivets back to hold the inner fender liner to the bumper , they didn't tighten the bumper brackets holding it on and they completely missed putting on the lower bumper skin . And this is a very reputable body shop ... I did however take it back and they fixed the problem right away, but still... I'm just using that as an example . I recently bought her the car car and was hearing this throaty sound from the engine and everyone kept saying it was just how it sounded . Well a upper torque mount was broken and sense I didn't know much about his newer vehicle I didn't notice , but when I took it in to get a state inspection because I bought it from Jersey , I also asked them to check it out . Upper torque mount was broken and the dealer sold me the car like that. A reputable Volvo dealer that's #2 in the nation and they told me they did their 5000 point , white glove , bull crap inspection on the car and even slapped a NJ two year inspection on it . Another recent example of people who don't do their job well. I have so many examples it's crazy! So when I do find people who give a crap about the work they do I treat them like gold ! Like the people who fixed my well or the Volvo mechanics that live by me . I had a awesome general practitioner , he was an old guy who knew what was going on and was old school when it came to being a doctor . He recently retired and now I got to find someone else to fill his shoes . Maybe we have Coke to the point where we are a throw away society regarding human life as well?
Food for thought
I will say this though. The insouls that I have have relieved the back pain that I used to have . I no longer have any , out of the ordinary , back pain . So that's a positive note .
