Pain sucks!

I have been having a bad time at work these last few days. I  have continued to have to do care and be on my feet all day.  I now have plantar fasciitis in BOTH feet and my knee is starting to aggravate me again.  Right now it is locking up and hard to straighten.  I may need to go see the Dr again and see what she can do for me if this keeps up.  I cannot be on my feet all day like this.  It just hurts too much.  They wanted me to work tomorrow because the dept of health came in today.  I asked for Friday off if I did, but they said NO!  That would put me working a week straight and I can't take it.  I can't believe I am only 41 and crippled up like this.  I wish I could loose some weight and take some of the burden off my feet.  Ok enough whining.  I guess Travis and the crew made it to N.C. alright and as I am typing this, Travis is down on the beach chasing ghost crabs!  Wish I was there....  Linda

i love mom

you need to get different shoes:) and try soaking your feet in epsom salts. I had this and i got shoes made for being on your feet all day long.

I am beginning to think the folks in their 40's and 50's like us are not as healthy as the ones in their 70's!!! So many younger people now have arthritis or joint and musclular and heart problems..
Hae you tried tylenol arthritis strength? Or flexall???
love ya,

I am with you on the pain. I have spells with my heels. I think I may have heel spurs. My knees can go for months just fine, then they will give me fits sometimes too. I just keep plugging along, and I never give in! Hope you feel better soon.

I don't believe I got an alert on this one, hope you can get some relief soon, I have feet and now legs also, so I know what you mean when you say pain, I'll keep you in my prayers.

Gee I really hope your pain can be managed ~ I know it can really bring you down.  Too bad they wouldn't give you Friday off, maybe the rest would have done some good.  I hope you start feeling better soon.  Travis is most likely having more fun than any of us.  :)
