Medical Monday (over 40 and falling apart)

Just for follow-up purposes and those that may be interested.. the podiatrist took x-rays of my feet.  Those showed I have arthritis in my big toes.  As to the rest of my feet, there is a tendon that runs from the bottom of my big toe, around the ankle, and up the back of my leg.  Right before summer started, I managed to pull or otherwise injure that tendon.  That seems to have healed (for now).  The current solution is exercises and shoe inserts.

As to the acupuncture, the headaches have mostly gone. I still get the pressure bands behind the headaches, so hopefully continued treatment will at least cut those back noticeably as well.
