My Left Foot

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.

I would like everyone who has heel pain, heel spurs or plantar fasciitis to know that there is Instant help for your heel pain. There is a new shoe cushion called "Heelbillys" and rightfully so because they are not your typical orthotic, but believe me they work and there is nothing on the market like them.
They can only be bought online at; www.heelbillys.com and cost only $15.00.


They are tall, soft cushions made out of a special foam and they fit inside your shoe right under your heel and feels like you are walking on a pillow. They give instant relief.
I have been wearing them now for over 3 months and my heel is so much
better that I can now walk without them but today's shoes are so poorly
cushioned that I don't take the chance because I don't want the excruciating pain that I had to come back. Today’s shoes are so poorly cushioned that even people who don’t have heel pain should get them to avoid heel pain problems, especially if they walk a lot. Sometimes the simple things work better than the expensive things that are just designed to cost a lot of money to make it seem like they are effective. Heelbillys are simple, and inexpensive but they are effective. You owe it to yourself to try them, and you won’t be disappointed, you can get instant relief.
