RSD Update:  It’s been a really, really rough weekend.  My physical therapists have been “encouraging” me to try a closed-toe shoe.  I haven’t worn a regular shoe since April….4 1/2 months.  I also suffer from flat feet, but that’s never really been a big issue to me.  However, the therapists think a closed-toe shoe could offer a lot more support than just sandals.  Soooo, Mike and I headed over to Brown’s Shoe Store, here in Hutch, on Friday afternoon.  They were very helpful and knew exactly what kind of shoe I needed for flat feet…RSD, not so much.  So I also requested a wide width to help accommodate for the RSD.  They picked out New Balance 1012, and it felt pretty good.  Oh, and they also had me try an orthotic insert.  Nice.  At that point, and at the ripe age of 33, I was suddenly feeling very old.  Anyhoooooo, I wore the shoe around for maybe a max of 10 minutes.  The shoe really did feel good on my left foot and I felt like there was support on my right foot…my bad foot, but something was a stinging a little.  When I took the shoe off and the sock off, I realized that the seam on the top of the sock was the stinging culprit.  Nice.  We left the store thinking we’d go back for them later.  However, by the end of Friday evening… my pain had gone from a normal 7 or 8 to a 10+.  And I had to get my crutch back out.  It’s been pretty bad ever since, but esp. bad today.  To the normal symptoms of aching, stabbing, burning, I’m also having stinging, swelling, and spasms.  And despite my oxycodone, I’m just not getting any relief.  It’s insane.  I’ve just never dealt with anything like this before.  All triggered by wearing a tennis shoe.
