Hi all

So, I am an exercise addict ( as you already know), and I love my gym. It makes me happy!!

Anyhow, I did something to my foot... It is near the heel, and I think it has to do with bad support in my sneakers and doing step aerobics. Also, I do think it has to do with the extra weight I put on and the too often carb overload.. does this make sense?

I really want to be lean and fit again, and I am struggling because I cant work out as much and keep damaging my foot, but I do not want to gain weight and as an O we know intense exercise is the best stress relief.

It is funny how the hot yoga has helped me feel balanced, but the injury and joints seem to be worse since I stopped adhering to the diet adamently and not doing as much exercise in the past.

Any thoughts?

I dont want to give in to the perception that it is age and I am "suppose" to gain weight and not be as lean... I think that is false.

Will beef help me?

Thanks

Is beef beneficial for you?  If so, it is a healing food.  If it is neutral, it is food, but not necessarily healing.

Ok, so this is a little embarrassing... but when I have a bowel movement, the pain goes away.



What is going on?

Do you think that yoga did this?? I never had any issues like this before I started hot yoga and someone on this board said that it can cause damage to our joints!

If it is on the back of the heel at the back of the foot, stop the step aerobics immediately and make sure your running shoes are well padded and have a slight lift.  If the pain is close to the tendon check for bulges on the tendon and ice immediately.

Now, my foot is really hurting me, like i can hardly walk on it.

should I do yoga in the am or not?? I dont want to make it worse, but I also think that the stretching might help it.
I could do a weight class, but I think that might mess me up because it is putting more weight on the foot with squats and all...

thoughts?

Take a few days off jumping squatting moves.  I would cycle only.  Make sure if you stretch not to over stretch the tendon.  Use heat on the area before you move it, ice at least 3 times per day.  If you rupture your tendon, you will be done for 4months, so be very careful with this injury.  Do not walk in bare feet or flip flops. Wear proper shoes with good support, put heel lifts in the shoes.

Good point. I could take spinning tomorrow! Phew... I thought I was homebound. I will get some ice tomorrow and a heating pad.

Thank you!! What foods are good to help me heal? protein?

I think I need to figure out why this happens. I remember eating more meat and this happened as well.

Maybe it is a result of working out too hard and not eating enough protein and now it is catching up with me??

Doesnt make sense, because when I am not eating meat, I am lighter and then the issues on my foot do not happen.

It is an injury, probably due to overuse, it doesn't have anything to do with food.  Could be a different exercise or your shoes are done and should not be used.  

I am in my 50's now and the overuse injuries from my 20's and 30's really are catching up.  

Why can't you take today off and see if your foot feels better? Then selectively start adding exercises in and see what hurts your foot.  

BTW I didn't say spinning, I said cycling, coming up off the saddle while spinning could also aggravate your foot.  Did you get new shoes and an appointment with a podiatrist?

Bromelein, turmeric, any of your highly beneficial foods will help keep the pain away.

Hot Yoga, if this is outside in the sun it is fine but if it is inside in a gym it is a very quick way to get sick, cold flu and a lot worse.

sounds to me like you are addicted too much to all this. and it may be making you eat more. hunger being confused with thirst

while eating less for a bit Rest it for a bit don't be aggregating it by hill walking etc. just do plain walking. if it still hurts then you have an injury or a circulation problem. see if drinking a whole lemon juice makes any difference.

is it your left leg?

do you get a tingling or throbbing when you eat sugar, white rice, or wheat or anything else? if so it may be a circulation problem in a addition to a strain.

No tingling or throbbing with the sugar. Yes, my left leg. I need to just take a few days and rest. I am going to check in with the school doctor and see what he says. Yes, it hurts to walk

Hi

Yes.Thank you. I am going to take the day off or even a few days... my body is sore, but hoping to get a free massage from a friend later today. I will get  to the school health care doctor this week. I did get a good nites rest, so that feels better. I actually do not like spinning, but if I had no other choice, I would do it. I am unable to get new shoes until the first when I get paid.

left leg sounds like a blood circulation problem to me,just like I have have you ever had an injury on that leg anywhere at all.

I had a bad injury, then flew and my leg blew up, didn't have a clue then. but 10 years later leg full of dvt. still working to clear it as I refuse to tale rat poison.

hope it's not but think about it. suddenly a strain looks more appealing and you will rest properly. if it keep coming back after work out then I think it will be a circulation problem for sure.

do you take deflect at all?

This is what I meant .... Dr D is much more eloquent than I

Intermittent Claudication THE WORD CLAUDICATION comes from the Latin claudicare, meaning to limp. Intermittent claudication is a condition characterized by an aching, crampy, tired, and sometimes burning pain in the legs that comes and goes. It typically occurs with walking and goes away with rest. In very severe claudication, the pain is also felt at rest. Intermittent claudication is caused by poor circulation of blood in the arteries of the legs. It may occur in one or both legs, and often worsens over time. However, some people complain only of weakness in the legs when walking, or a feeling of “tiredness” in the buttocks. A related condition, venous claudication, results from inadequate venous drainage. There are significantly higher rates of intermittent claudication in Blood Type A individuals, and to some extent in Blood Type AB individuals, when compared to other non-A blood types.

Listing this for myself as well as others -

One of the hallmarks of arterial claudication is that it occurs intermittently. It disappears after a brief rest and the patient can start walking again until the pain recurs. The following signs are general signs of atherosclerosis of the lower extremity arteries:

cyanosis
atrophic changes like loss of hair, shiny skin
decreased temperature
decreased pulse
redness when limb is returned to a "dependent" position
All the "P"s

Pallor increase
Pulses decreased
Perishing cold
Pain
Paraesthesia
Paralysis

What causes claudication?

Several medical problems can cause claudication, but the most common is peripheral artery disease. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is caused by atherosclerosis, which is a hardening of the arteries from accumulation of cholesterol plaques form on the inner lining of the arteries. This is especially common at branching points of the arteries in the legs. Blockage of the arteries from these plaques cause low blood flow to the muscles in the legs. When walking or exercising the muscles in the legs require more blood flow to increase oxygen to the cells. Atherosclerotic plaques cause decreased blood flow and decreased oxygen. The muscles of the legs can ache and burn as a result of inadequate oxygen. This is felt as cramping in the legs.
