Sesamoiditis. I'm an athelete, and older, and i came down with my first case three weeks ago. It did not come on after athletics, but rather 3-4 days later while walking.
I understand the basic treatments, but want to ask:
1. How long does it typically take to go away AFTER you start using ice, Advil, and a foot pad?
2. Can an over-used basketball show be the cause?
3. How do you avoid recurrence?
