My foot is purple, swollen and looks horrible. I have had plantar fasciitis for years. I started having a lot of problems about a year ago. I had a cast on my left foot then my right to help with the plantar fasciitis.
While I had a cast on my right I twisted the left. I had x-rays that nothing showed. My podiatrist ordered a MRI and I had to wait 7 weeks for insurance approval. The MRI showed 2 broken bones on the top of my foot. Another cast for 3 weeks.
It's been a month with the cast off. The podiatrist has given up. I've called orthopedic doctors and no one will see me. Went to the ER and they were sympathetic but couldn't find any thing else wrong. I'm doing everything right - hardly walking, putting it up, using wheelchair when I go out. Its getting worse not better.
My house is a disaster! I'm not eating right. I have to take care of my 10 mo grandson, I do that from a rolling chair. I'm exhauted.
