Thursday evening, suddenly my right foot began to hurt like crazy! On the right side of that foot, in one place, it was hurting so bad that I could not do anything else. Could not sleep! Could not walk. I just stayed in bed and watched the minutes go by.
I had aspirin in my medicine cabinet. But I cannot take aspirin because I am on Coumadin [Warfarin] treatment. In the morning, I asked my friend John to bring me over some Tylenol [which is OK for Coumadin]. After I took a couple of Tylenol, I began to be able to hobble around. Before that, I had crawl on my hands and knees.
I made an 11am appointment to see Doctor Lee, my primary care physician at Kaiser. I hobbled to my Honda car, and drove to the nearby Kaiser clinic.
Doctor Lee diagnosed the pain as coming from an infection in my foot and prescribed an anti-biotic for that. While in the Kaiser pharmacy, I picked up some extra-strength Tylenol for pain.
I spent the afternoon in my LazyDay recliner with my feet elevated, as instructed by Doctor Lee. My foot still hurts, but the pain is much reduced by Tylenol.
