    Hey!
    So this evening I've come across a problem with my feet, mostly my right foot. In short it is this weird lump near the beginning of my toe.
    I've already tried to find some similar discussions on this website and looks like it really is smth diabetes related and the only advise I found was just to go & see your foot doctor.

    Luckily , i do have an appointment this wednesday, but I still have to survive one more day (actually two , cause my doctor is at 6PM) with this discomfort every time i put my foot against the floor.

    So I wanted to ask , if someone knew smth i could do while I haven't been to the doctor?
    And can I go to school tomorrow or I shouldn't damage it anymore? I guess weather I can or can't attend gym tomorrow is stupid to ask , right?
    ---

    And while I am not entirely sure how this happened, my best option is that it happened because I wore quite high heels today.. but that was only for no more than 15min , just to try them out..

    So , since today I didnt really have problems with my feet and high heels , but now I am starting to wonder whether I will be able to wear heals at all.. Can some fellow heel lover tell me how they cope with similar situations..

    So , if you've read all of this , sorry if this seems too idk stupid or smth, I am still a newbie to diabetes and this is thankfully one of my rare problems with this lifestyle. So I would be so happy if you'd replied with some advise.. :)

    If it helps , I could try and post a pic of the "monster on my foot" :grumpy::(

    I wouldn't post pictures of your feet on the internet. It is unlikely to be something which will not wait till tomorrow for diagnosis. Does it hurt?

    Not really, just is quite annoying when I try to walk.. like there is smth stuck to my foot.

    But should I stay at home until I see my doctor or I can just do whatever I need to do as long as I get over the uncomfortable walking feeling?

    It is impossible for us to be sure, but if it is not sore I would say just do as you wish.

    Well it would be best not to aggravate the problem until you've had your foot checked by your gp, its your call really.

    I had something similar on my left foot on the knuckle before my big toe. Turned out to be non-malignent fibrous tissue. For whatever reason my foot decided to grow it there. Was like walking with a stone in my foot.
    Had it surgically removed.
    Two weeks later I grew two more, one on each foot.
    I've had steroid injections on those to shrink them, has worked on one but not the other.
    sorry I haven't offered any advice but just wanted to say your not alone!
    My pediatrist put it as 'the human body sometimes grows things for no particular reason' when I asked what could have caused it lol.

    Hi Marta Smusis, I was diagnosed with a lump or growth on my left foot when I was 18 apx it was just on the knuckle joint on my little toe, it was fairly sore but it was bearable I had a biopsy done but no one was sure then I had to see a specialist and then it was diagnosed as a ( excuse the spelling ) ANULOMA GRANULARIS I think that's correct. They said it was a growth of tissue and bone . I was told I could have a small op to remove of shaving it away but it might still grow back or just leave it for a while and see what happens, that was 32 yrs ago I still have it its diminished considerably and causes no pain or problems now, but being a young lady you may want something like that removed and obviously some pain relief would help. :)
