Woohoo! I saw the podiatrist today and am back in regular shoes. There's still just a bit of pain, and I have to stay on the anti-inflamatories for a bit longer and follow up with my primary doc. I need to work back up to walking as much as I was before, but will do that slowly. Now I know what to do if I have a flare. There are meds I can take, but drinking more water should help the most. It's going to be great, driving again. I feel like I have my independence back.

I am glad that you are feeling better, and hope the improvement continues!

Best wishes,
