I'm desperately trying to get another podiatrist appointment. I phoned up a couple of weeks ago and was told it would be "about a month". Called back on Monday to chase it up as I hadn't heard anything, and they had no record of my previous call. All I could get was a vague promise that the person I spoke to would "leave a note" for the podiatrist. So still no appointment and I can't run at the moment.
* Try running in my old plastic 3/4 insoles and see if that helps (once my foot stops hurting - might take it for a spin tomorrow)
* Go private (costs a fortune)
* Buy some insoles off the internet (but no guarantee I'd get the right ones).
The problem is the last two options are both more expensive than necessary! I've found my NHS insoles on the internet for a fiver - but you can't buy the buggers without a prescription! Agh!
I just hope I'm not setting myself up for a case of planar fascitis...
