I've got (heel) spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle

Yep. My dad confirmed it. I've got heel spurs. Well, I probably don't have an actual bone issue, but I've got plantar fasciitis for sure. Every morning for the last few months, when I take my first steps out of bed (usually at 5 am to nurse Buttercup) I have a fabulous shooting pain in my feet.

My dad's had to deal with these, too, and found that stretching the calf muscle can treat the issue. So, I'll be stretching often.

Thankfully it's not painful throughout the day. Just first thing in the morning and if I sit still for long periods of time (and that doesn't happen too often!).

I developed the same thing a few years ago! Must remember to stretch my feet more!
