Foot and Ankle pain

I think I have plantar fasciitis on one side and tendonitis in my ankle on the other. Twice this week I wore shoes that are not particularly supportive and am now seriously regretting it. If I was not pregnant I'd take an NSAID, but since I am I will just have to suffer. Maybe I'll take some Tylenol after breakfast later this morning. Ow, ow, ow....

OK, I am doubting that it's plantar fasciitis in the right foot. I now think it is achilles tendinitis. It is now so painful that I am going to go to a walk-in clinic this morning.

I've had tendinitis in my ankle before, although, not while pregnant. I just iced it every chance I got.

Yep, achilles tendinitis... the walk-in clinic doctor said to take Tylenol, do R.I.C.E. and wear more supportive shoes for the rest of my pregnancy.

I guess I'll be wearing my New Balance sneakers to work from now on... Tuesday I have a very important meeting that will require me to dress up.. white sneakers with a black suit: the height of fashion.
