Thank you Dr. Minkin for your response. It has been exactly 8 months since my last period, and I went to a walk in clinic since this posting, and was checked for signs of CHF, and kidney disease. Neither seemed to be the problem, but the clinic doc suggested a checkup with my doctor for more in depth lab tests. So, this is where I am as of now. The anti-biotic has helped the swelling, and the podiatrist placed me in an air cast for 3 weeks, for the spur problem. I am waiting for an ultrasound and MRI of the heel.
My PCP will be prdering labs for me this week.
Again thank you so much for your time and help. I value it very much.View Thread
