My cleaning woman had some lump/bump of the sole of her foot, on her heel, that was very painful, especially early in the morning. She had ignored it for a number of years and eventually it got worse and too painful to ignore.
So last week she had some kind of shot, an equally painful injection into the bump/lump, which has worked well. The doctor suggests one more injection next week and then wait and see for three months.
The point of telling you this is the exercise the doctor recommended which I think would be good for aching feet -- you'll know if this helps yours. He said to take a plastic water bottle, fill it with water, then freeze it. Put it on the floor and roll it back and forth with the sole of your foot. She loves doing this. I love anything like that that's cheap and I admire the doctor for providing a home remedy.
I asked her why she got this lump -- she isn't totally fluent in English -- but she said that the doctor told her it happens to people who are on their feet most of the time. And Ana does have a job folding clothes in a laundromat so she is standing alot. I'm just glad this shot seemed to work. So far, so good.
