Last night, I flipped a bit late and smacked my heel pretty hard on the metallic edge of our pool. I've done this before as I suspect many of our rank and file members have in their respective pools. Usually, it's pretty sore the next day, but you manage to continue onwards with a mild limp for a while, and then it goes away.
This time, however, I find I can hardly walk this morning. It's really quite painful, and I can feel my heart beat via yelps of pain in my heel.
I am just wondering if any of you have some recommendations for expediting recovery. In the greater scheme of things, I realize this is a minor affliction. But when you can no longer keep up on walks with your 13-and-1/2 year old arthritic pugs, it tends to induce a certain amount of desire to return to normal.
Or as close to that as one can hope for.
