O/T Plantar Fascitis--OUCH!!
A few years back, I got PF in my right foot. After about six months, it seemed to go away on its own. Fast forward to last year and we had a "walking challenge" which led to me getting PF in my LEFT foot. This bout seems much more severe. Has been hanging around since September of last year so I went to a reputable podiatrist.
I could kind of "feel" I had a heel spur in my left foot and sure enough the xrays confirmed it. He gave me a shot of cortisone in my left foot and gave me this stretchy foot boot that I have been wearing. He also told me to avoid going barefoot or going without supportive shoes. The pain moved from in the back arch of my foot to the heel itself which will give me a shooting pain for no reason it seems.
I have high arches and wide feet. So I was sitting at a luncheon today for an extended period of time (I usually don't sit for very long as it messes with my scoliosis) Anyway I could feel the same sort of pain on my RIGHT foot again.
Has anyone had this? My podiatrist says he only does surgery 1 out of 20 cases. It's been a week since the cortisone shot with zero difference. I have also tried acupuncture which helps a bit but not much.
This certainly is cramping my style as it feels as though you are walking barefoot over legos.
