Ever since around the second or third day after we got the keys to the new house and started cleaning and painting it I've had this extremely odd pain in my left heel/foot. The thing that makes it odd is that it hurts the most after I've been sitting down for awhile or when I first wake up in the morning. It is so bad that when I first stand up after resting for awhile that I can't help but limp, but after the first 20 - 30 steps it goes away completely. Now if I stay on my feet for too long then it does come back so then I sit down for awhile and after just a few minutes of taking weight off my feet the pain goes away, but then when I stand up again it comes back and I have to "walk it off" all over again.
Originally I had assumed that it was just the result of several potentially contributing factors. Swelling in my feet, being up and down off of the step ladder, the fact that I was wearing my crappy tennis shoes with no arch support because I didn't want to get paint on my shape-ups, and maybe even the fact that all of the major traffic areas in the new house are tile - which can be hard on the feet to stand and walk on for long periods of time, especially when you're not used to it.
I figured it would go away and once we started to move furniture and the painting was done I started wearing my shape-ups again thinking they would help. I also thought that the few days of rest I took last week would help to allow the swelling in my feet to go down and that might take some of the pressure off my heel but it still hurts and I am starting to worry it might be bone spurs. But from what I understand of them, bone spurs hurt when you walk on them and you can't just walk off the pain from them. My mom gets them in her heels really bad and she is in constant pain every time she stands or walks at all when she has them. I find it really odd that my pain is at its worst when I first stand after sitting down or after getting out of bed in the morning ... I can't think of a logical explanation for that.

Snackers talked me into going to football practice with him tonight and I ended up sitting on a blanket doing absolutely nothing active.
