My feet are growing?

I had a fair amount of trouble with my right foot in Malta. It seems as though my shoes were too small which in turn aggrivated a tendon in my leg and made me gimp around for a while. I got some new shoes in Malta that fit just fine and the pain and other symptoms went away. The shoes are equivilent to a size 13! I really don’t understand this, I was wearing 11 1/2 to 12 every day at Penn, and that’s with the same shoe company. The shoes that I brought to Malta had fit just fine, they had been a little tight recently, but nothing that I noticed before, now they are hopelessly small. When I got back to Yemen, I tried on the shoes I had bought for the trip, they’re a 12 1/2 and they now feel a little too tight… What’s going on, my feet seem to fine now, no swelling, blisters, etc, but they have gotten larger it seems…

It doesn’t seem unreasonable to me that the heat and increased activity would cause some swelling. That makes more sense to me than a 30+ year old man’s feet suddenly growing. 🙂 Hmm, do they look more muscular? There must be muscles in your feet, and you’re walking more than before…

I don’t think that’s it, or at least I hope it’s not it… Looking at the list of symptoms I only have one (thickening of the soles of my feet) which could have been related to too tight shoes and I might have the growing feet. I’ll keep an eye out for it though, sheesh they say there is an average of 12 years between when symptoms first occur and diagnosis. Must be a tough one to dianois.
