I'm pretty sure whatever the problem is it is aggravated by shoes that let my toes spread out. I wore ugg shaped boots all winter and had to stop because of these same problems. This current round, I'm pretty sure, is caused by Crocs. I have a pair of Skecher Convertables that both feel good to wear and don't cause the problem. So I think I'll stick to those for now. Plus walking in them seems to make my muscles even more relaxed when I take them off. A walking massage!
My first thought was to ask the doctor on Monday to send me to a podiatrist or orthopedist or whatever he thinks best. Then I thought I'd just find an orthopedic shoe store. Google turned up no good choices around here so I think I'm back to the first option which is better anyway. I need to find out what's going on and how to make it stop. I love my Crocs but not if they kill my feet.
On the up side, while the foot cramps interrupted my sleep, they didn't bother me at all while swimming which was really nice.
I think maybe after breakfast, I'll slap on my Skechers and massage my feet over to the Japanese grocery. I need apples. And almond cookies. And some of those great ginger pickles.
