On my last two ski days, Monday and Friday 2/9 and 2/13, the only time I felt any pain was when taking my boots off at the end of the day.
I've stopped using the special pad I created,but I'm still taking one tramadol, a pain medication, for the neuroma every time I ski.
On Tuesday I plan on skipping the medication and seeing how I feel. I'll take one pill with me, and gulp it down if the pain returns.
I suspect that the neuroma is in remission, and I believe it's because of the anti-inflammatory diet I started following in October.
I believe that my own neuroma was aggravated by chronic systemic inflammation.
I also think that many of the problems which I considered chronic or 'old age' are better because they were in fact aggravated by inflammation. Just my opinion about my body. Your results may vary.
Until this season I never skied 2 days in a row due to soreness; this year I've skied as many as 3 in a row, on ice, at Hunter. Would have skied 4 or more, but blackouts on my pass or bad weather intervened.
Anyone can try the diet, just Google 'anti inflammatory diet' to find tons of information from Dr. Weill; Dr. Perricone; Drs Roizen and Oz; or for the girls team, Dr Christiane Northrup.
