Talking with doctors about feet

So, last week I sprained my foot. Yowchers. And because I was getting ready to go on travels for a week, and the foot hurt like the dickens and didn't stop hurting, on the second day of pain and tingling, I made a quick trip to the doctor. He gave me the usual RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) speech and sent me on my way with his good wishes.

Here's my foot, elevated, in an ace bandage, next to my bottle of medication. (Those "M"s stand for "medicine", right)?

And just as an FYI if this ever happens to you, I'll add that it's really super helpful to work closely with a doctor on injuries like this. Notice the prescription (especially the last line) that the doc gave me.

Best doctor ever!
