Don’t know….Google it, crazy how much info is out there

I have had some foot problems, didn’t know what to do. My foot hurt if I put any pressure on it, but didn’t hurt at all if I was sitting. No swelling, no bruising, no injury, no dis-coloration. No clue!! I googled it, low and behold, others had experienced the same thing. My husband took me to urgent care this weekend but the x-ray machine was down so we left and I continued to ice and elevate and started searching. Now I am learning that many others are going to urgent cares/ERs/GPs and being told ice and elevate but that doesn’t seem to be the issue with these people as with me as well. Right now I have a tennis shoe on, no pain, but no weight on it either. The advice people on Google said, save your time, co-pays and frustration and go straight to a foot specialist, since we have Aetna Open Access I called Aetna and they said yes the clinic I was looking at was in-network and I didn’t need a referral. I then went to the clinic website and it had an “ask a nurse” button, of course I am going to use it. I wrote in my issue, got a call back within about 6 hours. Talked it over with her, depending on symptoms I will be heading into the Dr., I feel so much more confident that I am doing the right thing and not second guessing going in or not. Either way, I will skip a few needless frustrating steps along the way.   Thanks to Google, I know I am not the only one who has experienced this and I am not going Looney.
