So much pain, I kind of want to die. Also, post is kind of long.

    I went back to work Wednesday from Christmas break, and I had before/after school playground duty. I did my morning duty, then taught throughout the day without a hitch. As I was walking my kids out to the doors and going out for playground duty I started to get a dull ache in my foot, but it didn't alarm me. It's a rare day when I don't get that, being on my feet for so many hours every day. During duty, I was fine until I spotted a potential problem across the field. I stepped off the sidewalk and onto the snow-covered field and as soon as I did I almost fell over from the pain. It was literally crippling. I stopped moving, never was able to resolve the problem because I was suddenly in so much pain. After I went home I figured that I had just strained it from being on it so much after such a long break, so I stayed off of it as much as I could.
    Thursday, I thought it had resolved itself. I went until about 10:30, and then it started coming on again. By lunchtime I had discovered that shoes made it more painful and started walking around the faculty room and my classroom barefoot earning me the new nickname: "Shoeless." I ditched out on duty, and went home, cried for most of the night, and stayed off of it.
    This morning I had a break from the pain while I was getting ready for the day, but as soon as I went out to my car the pain started again.

    *The pain has been gradually increasing since Wednesday.
    *Pain is focused on the ball of my foot, and radiates out to my ankle, and is starting to work it's way up my leg. Though, oddly, relieved a little by walking on the ball of my foot.
    *There is little to no pain unless there is weight on it. Then, the more the weight, the more the pain.
    *There was no trauma: I didn't hit it or twist it, or even bend it weird.
    *I'm certain I'm killing my liver from the high amounts of Tylenol I'm taking to deal with the pain.
    *11 years ago I had a Jones Fracture on this foot. But I've had no pain since I was 14 (now 25).

    I have a doc's appointment on Monday to find out what's going on. But in the meantime, I'd love a sneak peak on what's going on with my poor foot.
    Let's brainstorm! What on earth did I do to myself?
