Here is your clue.
Add to that some nerve and heel pain not consistent with PF.
With an ever so slightly delay in the Calcaneus nerve transmission, and you get nothing.
By nothing it means I went to the Podiatrist today. After snowmobiling two weekends ago my foot hurt more then it's hurt in a while. I wore inserts the entire time. Of course the night before Hangover 2013 I may have walked a little rough on it, because as "Tim & Tickle" know, moonshine makes you a little numb. But I still wore an insert. I am getting so frustrated by my foot hurting when I'm not even running. So I went to chat with my podiatrist.
He said a lot of words like, "uncommon", "outlier", "anomaly". No one wants to hear those words, especially when you are talking about trying to heal your body. Weird facts about my foot:
*Resting for 7 weeks did not help
*Only one foot
*Slight nerve delay
*Missing a big toenail. (OK, that's just from running)
Luckily it doesn't mean this:
So I've got a few choices now. The one I've chosen is Tenex. I haven't done all the research yet, but it seems like a better choice then Astym, for me. But first about Tenex and why I want to go with it. It not only breaks up but it gets rid of most of the scar tissue. Of course there is a chance of infection, but I'm pretty healthy and will drink Kombucha all day (my new OBSESSION that I realize I'm about a year behind).
Here is a little bit of what I found on the internet that seems to accurately describe it:
(Vibrates, Irrigates and Sucks....Bahahahaha)
Tenex Health is a California company that has developed the FAST (Focused Aspiration of Soft Tissue) procedure for percutaneous removal of tissue that can help restore the normal functioning of tendons and soft tissue. Last February, Tenex announced the FDA clearance of its portable device used in conjunction with the FAST procedure that allowed soft tissue removal in the elbow, knee, ankle, foot, and shoulder.

Astym involves seeing a Physical Therapist about 3 times a week for at least 2 weeks. Plus it hurts like crazy. How do I know...well I've done it. It looks like this:
I can hear the patient screaming!
I know Tenex will also hurt, that I will be off of my foot for at least 4 days and in a boot morning, noon and night (Dat Boot 2) for 4-6 weeks. I'm willing to make that commitment. Will it completely fix my foot? I have no idea. The Tenex procedure is a long way from surgery to cut nerves and fascia and whatever else they do. I just don't know what else to do. I tape, ice, elevate, ibuprofen, essential oil and stretch it just about every day!
SO that is the boring, long update on the injury that is lasting forever!
Today's ab work was a Core class at my Pilates studio. I had cramps in my abs. Cramps! This month must be doing something!
How is your injury? Is it boring? Have you ever been injured?
