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?
There are a few exercises that you are suppose to do in the am before you get up. The purpose is to stretch your muscles and tendons before you get up!
i am worried about my ® foot from the minor surgery i had earlier this year when i start clinical.
i pray yours heal soon.
be thankful they aren't 3 and 4 days a week like mine! Hope you get better!

You may wamt to try one of these shoes already mentioned or a pair of RockPorts, these are the best shoes, in Nursing and out and about.
Ann, I hope your foot is doing better by now.
The second day of clinical my feet really hurt and I thought it was my shoes.. well after the 2nd day, they didn't hurt anymore.
So how are you doing now? :)
