I did it! I finally found a specialist that listened and paid attention to me! So she told me today that I have "Complex regional pain syndrome"… which explains the coldness in my foot! The only Dr not to tell me to wear warmer socks!!) So she put my on a drug for that. And is completing more scans to see how it's all healing and what's actually going on.
Hindsight is funny isn't it? I feel like I should have gone to see her earlier. Although in saying that I am so glad I have found her now. Trusting your gut is HUGE. And we generally don't follow it as often as we should. I am glad I continued to search for someone that would give me answers. It's disappointing though that it has taken me 4 months and countless Drs to be able to find one that I feel I can trust.
But what I have learnt is that to trust that inner feeling - you know the one that tends to tell you something feels right or it doesn't? And not to settle until that happens. If you gut is saying that it's not right, then don't do it - or continue to search until you find what you are looking for. We employ so much trust in things that we forget to listen to ourselves and our needs etc.
If it feels right, trust it. If it doesn't seek a second..or third..or fourth opinion!
…Until Tomorrow xox
