Walk This Way...

Com vostès saben de tenir, o conèixer a algú que té, Cauda Equina Syndrome, que és una burla a la seva manera de caminar. I've described myself as walking like Frankenstein. Ara ve la nova, coses divertides que el CES ha fet.

Feeling ha començat a tornar als costats dels turmells. Com ho ha fet, I've noticed a different type of pain on the outside of my right ankle. My wife looked at it and said there is a small bump there.

At first, I thought that my shoe must be rubbing me. But the bump was hard. Of a morning, before my feet swell during the day, there is almost no pain unless it is touched. As the feet swell my shoe comes in contact with the bump and it gets progressively painful through the day despite my pain meds. It peaks at about a 3 and affects my gait.



I went to a podiatrist this morning. Diagnosis - probable torn tendon. This "nodule" is just what to expect from this condition. Surprise, surprise! The Doctor was actually aware of CES and knew quite a bit about it.

Next up, an MRI to confirm diagnosis and a nerve conduction test to determine extent of my nerve regeneration in the lower extremities.

Cauda Equina Syndrome - the gift that keeps on giving!
