Thanks, guys. Appreciate the responses. Given what I’ve outlined above, is it natural that I’ve been in pain pretty much every day for the last six months with this? Every time I walk for more than then minutes all of my toes go bright red and burn up and swell. I had the steroid injection two weeks ago and it doesn’t seem to have done anything for me, and I’m still on three anti inflammatories a day. It’s taking up a lot of my thoughts and all of my good spirits and I’m feeling really hopeless about making a recovery. Six months is so long to be debilitated.
