Two cases of highly contagious measles have been confirmed in the
suburbs west of Boston, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health
said Monday, and Framingham health officials later issued a public
health alert warning residents that they may have been exposed to the
disease if they shopped at the Trader Joe’s on Route 9 in Framingham
on Feb. 15 or 16.

Remember that your immunizations help protect those who can't/can't yet be immunized.

Wow. I totally forgot that my foot 1st started acting up (in this latest, non-gouty way) around 10 months ago.

Oy.

(I just got preliminary bone-scan results from my GP. The podiatrist is on vacation. :/
There's no fracture around the 4th or 5th metatarsal. This IS something on my 3rd. It's not clear what. GP notes that he's NOT a foot specialist and I should talk to Podiatrist, which I intend to do ASAP (maybe tomorrow??). I'll be at squares tonight, but I'm not going to dance until I get more info.)

Saw the podiatrist today.

His 1st thought is a stress fracture.

We'll determine this in 2 different ways: How I react to the compression cast he put on and what the bone scan I get next week says.

The options seem to be a week or so to heal, or 4-6 weeks.

In the mean time, take it easy, be sedentary, wear the stiff shoe thingie, and just wait.

...Just as the Tech Squares class is done and it's time for all club-level all the time.

Is there any such thing as anti-perspirant for the scalp?

Yes, it's not something one'd want to use everyday, but there are some days that I really really want it... and I expect tomorrow'll be another one of them.

So, around 9 weeks ago, my right foot started hurting in a new and different way, along the muscles along the top of foot, along the muscle path for my little and 'ring' toes.
(Looking at The Anatomy Coloring Book, it seems to be where the 4th and 5th toe branches of the Extensor Digitorum Longus are running along the 4th and 5th Metatarsals, around the middle of their length.

It was worst when I transitioned from having weight on it to not, or when I went from no weight to stepping on it. Staying in either of the weight or no-weight positions was pretty much fine. Walking, moving, shifting, dancing, etc, not so much.

I went to the Dr. I had x-rays done to look for stress fractures. Nope. It didn't seem like a gout attack to me, as it had nothing to do with my big toe. Eventually, after taking it easy for a few (4? 5?) days, it went away.

Last week, Wednesday, it returned. Just as painful. This time, it was MOSTLY done with by Sunday or so, but my foot was still sore through Tuesday.

Wednesday, both feet were fine.

On Thursday, my OTHER foot started hurting, in a different place - that bunch of muscle farther up the foot from the 1st location (on the other foot, but you know what I mean...), nearer the ankle - perhaps at the Inferior extensor retinaculum or (less likely) the Superior extensor retinaculum - but still towards the outside of the foot.

Along with this is a bit of (right) big-toe flair-up, but I have no idea if these are actually related.

{sigh} I don't need this.
