Started with plantar fasciitis , developed cuboid bone fx. In ankle . Out of work one month ! Went back too soon ! No more sick days . Compensating with my gait on feet all day , work in elementary school as case aide . Little chairs , up & down , tying shoes all day ! Sciatica pain developed , became severe ! Mornings bad ! In tears ! Many days after work , in tears ! 6 months of pain! Had cortisone , some improvement , take ibuprofen daily , use ice . Started stretching & some yoga , finally getting some relief ! Not totally pain free every day . Retiring in June !! Hope to improve more then , more time to exercise , more time for me !
