Yes, just gave me a cortisone shot in the ankle and pain medication has been given to me two weeks ago. Saw a orthopedic doctor.

I would like to ask a few more questions:

  1. Are you having a lot of foot pain?
  2. How active are you and is this condition limiting your activity?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
