So, I just got back from the PT's office again. They figured out that my left foot supinates more than my right and to compensate, when my foot pushes off the ground I am torquing my knee. This would explain why I get such vicious blisters on the outer ball of my left foot. Viscous blisters! They also figured out that my left leg is about 1/8" shorter than my right. Who knew. So, now we have to figure out how to correct it. I am going back on Friday to see another specialist and to talk about the possibility of orthotics. So in response - I am drinking tonight. Will I ever be able to run long distances again? I am trying to stay positive, but I am feeling heartbroken. I went to the track on Sunday and made it around once before I started feeling the onset of pain. I stopped immediately. I wish I could just get steroid injections like A-Rod.
