I said feetsies, NOT…


Last year I busted my foot while I was taking out the trash. No, not THAT kind of trash.  After months of living with the sheer unendurable agony of left foot pain, I decided to see my doctor.  She referred me to a Podiatrist, and my worst fears were confirmed…I had flat feet.  WAAAAH!  So I can’t wear those paper thin flip flops, but I never really liked them anyways.  After a few sessions with the Podiatrist, she got the go-ahead to get me into some custom-made Orthotics!  Yes, insoles made based on my own feet’s shape.  Today I got my feet casted.  My damn flat feet. She wrapped some wet plaster sheets around my feet and started shaping them.  As I sat there while she shaped my cast, I wondered why I wasn’t feeling ticklish.  I am often ticklish, especially around the foot and ankle region.  But I did not feel ticklish at all today. Did I lose all sensation when I inflamed my accessory navicular bone?  Or do you just lose sensations as you get older?

My feet being casted for orthoticsYes, that’s right, I have an extra bone in my foot, known as the accessory navicular bone.  Like I told a co-worker, “extra bone, extra funny”.  Hey…I laughed.
