Surprised physio didn’t help – it more or less fixes mine every time – although mine is the ‘not weight bearing when first getting up’ version…

The only cure I ever found was when I waded through a stagnant pool to get access to a caravan site in South Wales. Not sure what was in the water, but my feet had lovely skin for months after.

swollen and I’m lame even when walking -I guess that’s it for me running the marathon I was training for.
Any self-help remedies gratefully received.
