I have had off and on problems with my feet for years, plantar fasciitis, inflamation of joints etc.
In Arizona, when this flared up last in Phoenix area, I was able to schedule an appointment with a new podiatrist the same day.
Here in California, the wait is 4-6 weeks. They have a cancellation next Tuesday they can squeeze me in.
Yo, I can’t walk NOW, what do you think I can do for a frigging week?
I guess it will be off to urgent care.
For the record: Last time, this required a surgical shoe to prevent flexing, and some stronger anti inflammatory drugs than Ibuprofen or Naproxen Sodium, and a couple days’ rest.
