    Not sure if I'm going to get told off for this since I'm not sure why the last one migrated, but...

    Then if I do get disciplinary, my union rep will help me as the S&D bug I had in early June, we are told to stay away from work and in no circumstance, to think about going to work. Plus about seven others had the bug and a primary school closed for a day - a Friday as many kids had it.

    I will be irritated and annoyed if the x-ray comes back normal. So what is causing me to have this pain???

I love to wear insoles, but in the winter, need to wear two pairs of socks as its freezing. Two pairs and insoles are too tight. Next size up in the shoes are like boats! Then my work's floor is tiles similar to this and other shops have this type of flooring which, we believe are kinder to feet.


    I did see a podiatrist aged up to 12 as got flat feet and walked at a way that the outer edges of the heel of shoes wore out fast. The insoles were made from rigid plastic which were about half the length of my feet. I got blisters where the insoles ended in the middle of my feet. Plus useless in hot weather - when we had it!

    Shin splints can be in just one leg. Also the pain doesn't always go when at rest, it can take weeks for the pain to go. Being flat footed is a known cause of shin splints, and I don't want to be rude, but I'm certain I've seen you post about being on a diet, being over weight doesn't help

    A podiatrist may well be able to help you a lot more. Things have moved on since you were 12, new materials have been developed. My dad was near crippled with back ache, caused by a shift in gait due to the weight of the gear he carried as a police officer( battery pack, truncheon etc) . A slight raise in one shoe sorted him

    When you are resting, try an ice pack, a bag of frozen peas along the shin

    I went on the Daily Fail website to have a hate read, and I swear it's gotten even worse. I used to be able to spend a while reading braindead celebrity articles and finding out about all the new things that give you cancer, but I just can't enjoy it any more. It's like they've turned the vitriol dial up to 100. They might as well just live stream a puppy being kicked in the face and be done with it.

    Son number 2 annoyed me yesterday. I left work early to go and pick him up from home with a load of rubbish for the tip - I wanted to get there before it closed. On the way he let me know we had run out of dishwasher tablets. I had previously bought a huge box of the from JTF which lasted over a year. I said we could pop to the Co-op on the way back and get some more. I mentioned that I was happy they had gone because they were unwrappy ones - which annoyed me intensely (irrational I know). So we go to the tip, go to the Co-op-, he runs in to get coke and dishwasher tablets - COMES BACK WITH UNWRAPPY ONES!

    Seriously - did we not just discuss how much they annoyed me? I have actually washed the dishes by hand rather than unwrap a tablet!

    Do I win the "Most First World Problem Ever" prize?
