Dave, you might try some baking soda and water, (1 to 2 tablespoons to 8 oz) if it's gout this could help some.
I have also heard apple cider vinegar and water treats it, til you can have a doctor look at it.

Hope this helps.

I just found your thread and I have had gout and spurs both. I found black cherry juice works great on gout. When you dock, find a better quality grocery store and buy the non sweetened black or any cherry juice if you can find it. It will work in hours it's that good.

Spurs are a different story. They are in the heel of your foot and it feels like someone is putting an ice pick in your heel. If that is your symptom, the best cure is a shot in the heel by a doc. That is a painful experience too. It dissolves the spur in a few days.

I had to get New Balance running shoes to keep them from returning. Jogging, walking don't work. Has to be the best running shoe and the pain goes away immediately and I haven't had them return since. That was in the 90's too. I still buy only New Balance running shoes but I can wear flip flops as well. I get the Sperry with arch support.

Good luck, but if your pain is the roof of your foot and toe, it's gout.

I agree with Capthead, black cherries will help it. I just didn't think he would have any on the boat.
ACV is useful to soak glasses and clean flat screens, so I thought that might be available.

I think it sounds like a spur. My heal had been hurting for a while. I was wearing socks and just regular tennies. I always wear the sperry loafers but when it really started hurting I wanted some padding between the heal and the ground. Now my foots swollen it feels really tight I can hardly bend my toes. It did help for a few to put my leg back and stretch the top ill try to find a foot Dr. Monday. I guess I gotta get the shot. I've had them before I know they hurt like heck

Look for the NB shoes too. It'll help 100%. A good foot dock knows the shoes. Mine gave me a list of em.

Go to a shoe store that specializes in support shoes. They can set you up with the correct shoes for your condition.

I wear Asics running shoes with an insert and the results has been positive.

I just looked on ActiveCaptain. Give Lengendary Marina a call they are just before the bridge. It looks like the channel to the marina runs right along beside the bridge. Ask for a slip away from the noise.

David, I don't see an anchorage by the bridge----just a marker for the bridge. I don't know the forecast, but that Bay is shallow and can get nasty quickly. I would get in the marina or continue to Fort Walton. If you can work your way into Joes Bayou there is an anchorage there. Very sheltered. I used to fish in there.

Go see a Dr.
No one can reliably diagnose this way. It could be anything, something serious, or nothing.

Hey Dave,
Are we having fun? Hope the foot works out. I'm what 6-7 weeks into mine and I've got a long way to go. The trip looks like fun. Tell you what I'll keep going and we will meet again in Canada.

Well I'm back at it. I was anchored out for almost a week I guess. Trying to get over the loss of my crew. I'm still not sure why but it can't be for the reasons I was given. But I'm about outta fresh water and provisions. Just passing the sandbars west of Ft. Walton I hope to dock in Pensacola tonight.

Gentle or genital? If the latter, that's a f---ing shame!
