This morning, I was flip flopping from "maybe I should cancel" to "hell with it, let's get this sucker done!". So when it's finally time for me to go in, and I'm sitting there waiting, I was poking at my foot trying to find the most tender area and nothing- felt pretty good- really weird...it was killing me all am and now nothing. So, when the dr came in and did the same and nothing, a bit tender but not super ouch. Finally found my most tender spot, right in the middle, oh joy. Before we did the shot though, I told him I really didn't want to do it and we talked about my newly found allergy to dexamethasone. He was a bit concerned about it too. He gave me some other options, such as a steroid pack that would require me to take a pill for a week then you have to be weaned off of it or NSAIDS-which i've been doing. The shot would be in the same family as dexamethasone but since I only had a skin rash, the chances of something too serious probably wouldn't happen. So....what did I chose?

Edited: It's been about 10 hrs now and I'm still feeling pretty good. I'm kind of nursing it a bit, trying not to walk around too much. Definitely feeling like I have a bruise on the bottom of my foot, but no PF pain. I was worried that I'd get a cortisone flair but nothing. Thank goodness!
So today ended up being a good day after all!
1. PF pain feels better (fingers crossed)
