Am in trouble. Mum died a month ago so I am suddenly managing her household (& estate) single-handed: large garden, dog (pet), clearing up after trauma, moving things around, and so forth.
A week ago I went for a walk in a new pair of shoes. Have an arthritic big toe joint in left foot so consciously delivered walking weight onto right foot. Result was a sore, painful right ankle the next day, which won't go away. Am wearing a support on it.
Now today, gardening, my left big toe joint was suddenly shot with pain. At first I though it was a sprained ligament, but it's the toe joint which is painful. So now I have injuries to both feet, and things are getting sticky - am I technically lame? Can't be far off it!
Have taken neurofen and am coping but - 'limping pains' in both feet - what am I to do? Trip to the supermarket earlier this afternoon was obviously beyond contemplating. I found a walking stick not been used for a while. Was using for the right leg - now I'm using it on the left!
Should I contact my GP? What should I do please?
