Part of my PT is stretching and strengthening then I get therapeutic ultrasound on my heel to help with inflammation and topped off with a massage. Strangely, the ultrasound hurt this time around. I asked if he'd changed the settings, but they were where they always were. He turned it down, then after a minute it started to hurt again. He then got curious and tried using a tuning fork/vibration thingy and touched different parts of my foot and asked if I had any pain. Nothing with that. My PT told me that I might have a small fracture/stress fracture since the ultrasound hurt and I haven't had much relief with the cortisone shot. I wonder why the ultrasound hurt this time, when we've been doing it every pt session. Is it that the cortisone did get rid of the swelling so now I can feel it differently? So off to the Dr's I go again on Monday...this time demanding a xray. Seriously? I just want to be able to run. I'm so done with this.
Edit 1/16/12: Negative on the xray for a stress fracture but I'm getting an MRI in the near future. So, we'll see.
