I have Plantar Fasciitis in both feet and I am PAINFULLY aware of how not funny this condition is.  But I found this list online and had to share.  Only a PF sufferer will find extreme humor in this.…Continue

"Swimming.  I know it may not be the most convenient solution but it provides such great cardio and no impact whatsoever.     The tricky part is getting out of the pool.  It's just like when you first step out of bed in the…"

Diana replied to Paul Lehr's discussion Pop!
"Just thinking about that "pop" is making my heels hurt. I have never felt a pop. Maybe that's what happens when the Plantar Fascia tears. If you feel pain in your heel upon standing after you've been sitting for a while, or if…"

"Hi Marilyn - I was also deathly afraid of the cortisone shots. I was so scared that I suffered for 2.5 years every single day with that horrible pain. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I knew the risks of getting the shot. I did lots of…"

"My honest answer is I just don't know. I have PF in both feet and it's been about 5 years now. I am currently comfortable since I've received cortisone shots (the ONLY thing that has relieved the pain) but I am extremely careful. I…"

"I'm checking out the website too! Believe me, I DO NOT want a lifetime of cortisone shots. But they were magic bullets for me! THANK YOU!"

Diana replied to Kathryn's discussion shoe advice
"I have had great success with orthotics. They cost a small fortune ($200-$400) but as long as you can put them into your shoes, you will get a lot more use out of them. Good luck!!!"

Diana replied to blkgryphon's discussion Confused...Dr. says PF, but doesn't sound like it...
"I definitely would recommend seeing a Podiatrist. From my personal experience and understanding, PF causes heel pain, not arch pain. The arch does need extra support to treat PF though...which is why orthotics are often helpful, but if you are…"

Diana replied to Blake McMurray's discussion What is my injury?
"This sounds like PF. The pain in the morning, the pain you feel when you stand and start walking from a seated position...both telltale signs of PF. I would go see a podiatrist if I were you to be certain. There are many ways to treat this horrible…"

Cortisone shots - How many is too many?

As fellow sufferers and researchers, I would like to know what your doctors have told you and what you have learned about cortisone shot limits.  I am going for my 4th shot next week, which will make 2 in each foot.  The second one in the left has lasted over a year and my foot still feels brand new.  It's been 3 months since the first shot in the right foot and I'm hoping this second one will last as long as the 2nd one in my left.  But I REALLY don't want to get these shots forever because 1)…See More

"I also have read everything on the internet about PF. Based on what I have read I would say this does not heal forever. It improves with treatment, but it comes back. But I'm not a doctor and I am basing my answer strictly on my personal…"

My Plantar Fasciitis Story

It was obvious something was wrong. When my alarm went off in the morning, the first thought on my mind was how I was going to get out of bed today. But every morning, for 2 years I did it. There were days that I crawled. There were days that I hopped. There were days where I put one hand on my window sill and the other on my bed and I put all my weight on the heels of my hands and my right foot. And there were days where I just called in sick. But there were never days where I put weight on my… Continue
