Hi Sara: I feel so bad for you . . . I am a whole lot older than you, and also have it in both feet - almost 3 years now - Every single day I do the exercises and icing - some days are worse than others. I cannot imagine having had this at your age . . . as you said, there are so many things in school - gym for one - and with the Summer coming up means sandals, sandals, sandals - which you are not supposed to wear. Did any of the doctors recommend calf stretches? What kind of shoes did they suggest for you?
hi i am in 7th grade and i have PF in both feet too. i have only had it for 5 months and seems like ive tried everything it feels like i should give up and live with it but it hurts to much. in p.e. no one knows what it is or what its like so everyone asks a lot of questions and i dont know a lot about it so i just say that its painful and i cant run. after P.E my feet throb because i have to stand on them for an hour. my teacher has it to and is getting a surgery i dont want surgery but kinda do as long as i can get rid of it. i feel really bad for you i dont know if i could take it that long.

Hi, I have been reading all the messages about foot pain that some teens are experiencing and I feel sorry for you guy's, my son has been having a lot of pain in his foot and at times he can't do sports or p.e as well. So, I googled on internet to see if I can find a cure or a pain relieve for him.....Any ways, long story short....I found on face/book that there is a sock you can wear and it has been a miracle cure for a lot of people. It's called the Compression Plantar Sock which I will be buying a pair for my son and hopefully life for him will be back to normal.....You can look up a website called 'DrGrab New Zealand or .co.nz give them a try and I am sure it will give you back the life you've missed out on, look them up and give it a go, what have you got to lose except a full healthy and happy life. Good luck and hope this is of any help :)
