Man...I did something to my left foot. Since starting softball 3 weeks ago, my left heel & base of 5th metatarsal has been tender. I know, probably a bad case of plantar fasciitis. But the pain on the lateral part of my foot is a bit worrying...I hope it's not a stress fracture.
I know, I know, I should go see a podiatrist or an orthopod or at least get an X-ray done. But I hate going to see doctors. Yeah, sounds strange, me being one & all.
Maybe it's just me but it feels awkward when I consult a doctor. It's like, I feel like I should be able to diagnose myself already (sic). Even the other way around, if I happen to see a doctor who has come in as my patient for something as simple as an insurance check-up, I feel uncomfortable.
They say doctors make the worst patients & I think I am a classic example. Sigh...if the pain goes on much longer, I'll have to call up one of my orthopaedic colleagues for a consult.
