Ok so my podiatrist appointment was really today. Good thing my husband keeps track of my schedule and realized I thought it was on the wrong day! I got a diagnosis of equinus which was caused by genu recurvatum caused by my EDS. What does that mean? My joints are hypermobile because of EDS. My knee bends back way further then it’s supposed to. That causes me to change my stride so that I mostly walk on the balls of my feet. This leads to muscle tension and plantar fascitis. Both of which are the cause of the pain I’m having. So I get to have foot orthotics. Yay. He wants me to use both arch support and heel lifts. Hopefully that will address the pain. He also wrote a script for a pain medication. I’m hoping that will help. There have been some days that this foot and lower leg pain is crippling. It’s good to have a direction to move in. I love my foot doctor. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate. The fact that he knows about EDS is huge. Few doctors in my area do.
