I went to bed fine and woke up with sharp pain on the inside arch at the center of my foot. I can massage all around the bone but when I touch the bone there is a sharp pain. I have had this for 2 days now. It hurts when I walk.

I had a bilateral lung transplant 5 years ago. Because I am going through chronic rejection I had a lung biopsy which ended in a collapsed lung. After all this time things are starting to happen which I never thought would.

At age 85 was experiencing 2 or 3 times during the night, the need to urinate. I went to see a specialist and was diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia and put on Duodart tablets, which I have taken for 8 months but it does not make much difference. At this stage I intend to cancel out on specialist in March 2015, who was not very helpful. I make every effort not to drink any fluid after dinner in the evening. I wonder if I have to live with this for the rest of my life.
