Two days ago, in A Sprained Foot Leads To Some Interesting Observations, my foot had suddenly felt sprained during the day. That really took me by surprise because I’d walked into my office feeling just fine. It was a gradual increase from a little bit of pain to so much pain that I couldn’t really put any weight on that foot – all within only about an hour!

For two days, I’d limped from street corner to street corner, having to rest every few steps in order to let the pain subside so that I can keep walking.

Strangely, as I was walking back to the train station today, about 1/2 the pain disappeared as suddenly as it had come. It was really bizarre! I was just limping along very painfully and all of a sudden, I only felt a dull pain instead of a very sharp pain. Granted, it’s still somewhat painful to walk, but the sudden change from “Ow! I can’t walk!” to “Hmm, I can handle some pain!” is just really surprising.

The only explanation I can come up with is that perhaps, somehow, blood flow to that part of my foot has been cut off two days ago. Then today, some clot or something came loose and blood returned partially to my foot? Either that or it returned completely to my foot and the pain I feel now is actual damage done to the foot from an inadequate oxygen supply.

Who knows… another one of life’s little mysteries.

    I have something similar. It seems to happen every year around winter time. What I found it to be was a tarsal-cohesion which is just arthritis connecting 2 bones together. I cannot walk on it for 2-3 days. Then magically I wake up and can run 3 miles.

    Wow, that’s particularly strange.. Was the ankle/foot turning an sort of color? Was their bruising visible? It’s definitely possible, but very odd that it would clear up on it’s own. Neat though, glad it’s feeling better..
