Ortho Update:
New orthotic inserts arrived June 28th, but wasn't able to pick them up until July 1st.  Have to ease into them, by starting at an hour-90 minutes for a few days, then adding 30 minutes every two days until I can wear them to work (on my feet for at least 3 hours at a time), in order to avoid bruising my arches.  The minute I put them on, I could feel the new arch, and best of all, pain level dropped from a 6/7 to a TWO!  I could feel the back of my heel being 'stretched', so this will definitely take a few weeks to get used to.  I go back to ortho dr August 30th.
