Well yesterday was my clinical day 5 hours + a 2 hour lab. When I got home I noticed that my left foot just below the ankle was very sore. Didn't think too much of it, except when I woke up this morning it was very swollen and tender. Went to the doctor already today - and his DX was tendinitis. I'm not overweight, don't smoke, etc. very healthy - he put me on Vioxx for the inflammation and said it should go away within a week and to stretch my lower leg/foot muscles more. I am 39 and I feel like an "old lady!" what am I going to do in my 3 and 4th semester when clinicals are 2 day/week?? I'm wearing nice Avia walking shoes for clinicals - any suggestions?
