Mine have looked frighteningly lame before, and I panicked, of course. Turns out we never knew what it was. Farrier was baffled. But it was gone within 48 hours. Of course I soaked, iced, and did whatever I could think of, but I don't think it helped much. Would've gone away on it's own anyhow, but I need to be "proactive" to feel better, LOL!
