My foot feels like it is swollen. Curiousity has me wanting to take my shoe off and inspect it but I know that is a bad idea. If it is swollen, I may not get my shoe back on.
This actually started on Monday. I woke up and got out of bed like any other Monday. But when I stood up, putting pressure on my feet, I felt pain in my toe. Not the big toe. The second in command toe.
I poked around the toe and notice the pain was in the joint. Pain in the joint. I have had that issue before. But that was with the big toe. Then I thought it might be a gout attack. It could have very well been. Now it was a similiar feeling but in a different toe.
I got by on Monday. Same with Tuesday. This morning, my toe felt pretty good. Pain was down quite a bit. As I walked around though, something seemed different. It felt like I was walking on a pebble. The pain in the joint seemed to have moved to the bottom of the foot. How did that happen?
But it wasn't bad. Until I got to work. No problems for a while until I got up to get some water. I had been sitting at my desk for close to two hours. When I got up to walk it felt weird. I hobbled a bit before managing a stride that eased the pain a bit. But my foot felt like it had swelled inside the shoe.
Now I am wondering what might be going on. I am tempted to take off from work to get the shoe off and hopefully some relief. I may have to skip working out tonight because of it. Or I can leave it be and it will likely be fine by Friday.
I just hope I don't twist an ankle if I end up walking funny.
