Eli replied to michaela's discussion OK to keep on walking?
"I live in Montreal, Canada. I think it's possible to engineer oneself some orthotics. I bought a pair of hard insoles that one could put in hot water then stand on them and let cool. I wore them for 1 yr. But in the US it's cheaper. In…"

Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"I understand Caroline. But we must try everything, must we not? Surely if you really wanted and wore them a few hrs each day, then you'd sleep with them too.  It's your choice. Hope your knee gets better and better too. Take care!"

Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"That is very sad, Caroline, to have 2 problems at once that intersect. But perhaps the knee takes priority, no? I don't recall if you wear nightsplints. I'd suggest-if you must walk a bit- to do it immediately in the morning after removing…"

Eli replied to michaela's discussion OK to keep on walking?
"Interesting! I'd like to see a picture of that, do you have a link to an image? There's a sock-like, but it's been discontinued, not efficient. You see, in our Cdn medicare, they only pay when stuff has been proved to help. And the…"

Eli replied to runner's discussion prolotherapy and deep tissue massage?
"Yes! That I believe also: That cortisone injections damage. Of course, when the pain is unbearable we do anything. But I agree that cortisone in itself can perhaps cause it. I had gout like symptoms 6 months before I first had PF and received a…"

Eli replied to runner's discussion prolotherapy and deep tissue massage?
"About orthotics A friend of mine is an orthesist. I was given a lecture and shown the various types. Personally I was bewildered to go from 3 pairs of soft insoles (a little mountain of sponginess under my heels) to hard insoles. Perhaps people…"

Eli replied to runner's discussion prolotherapy and deep tissue massage?
"Can you send the link for the video about rest after PRP; perhaps I did too much too soon??? I am soooooooo frustrated! HI! I understand you. But PRP seems to be working for you. Isn't it successful in 50% of the cases. Well you're one of…"

Eli replied to runner's discussion prolotherapy and deep tissue massage?
"Hi runner, Glad exercises work for you. I separate between PF sufferers who are athletes (the majority) and those who are not. Let's keep in mind that PF just means inflammation, so the causing factor can be as different as day and…"

Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"Yes chemical sensitivities are related to Fibro. To avoid toxins in all forms is a great idea. If I want a headache and excrutiating backaache all I have to do is walk into a Wallmart. I understand how sleeping problems are annoying. Have you tried…"
Jul 20, 2012
Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"Yes, fibro is awful. However sometimes it doesn't last long. Or it evolves. Also, it's become a basket for all undiagnosable symptoms. It's the tender points, worse in the morning, and shifting pain. Affects concentration and memory.…"

Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"Interesting. In my mind, pain is the natural alert to tell you that something is wrong. The problem is thus never pain itself. rather whatever it is causing pain. Like the destination and the trajectory. When one has Fibro or arthritis, there is…"

Eli replied to runner's discussion prolotherapy and deep tissue massage?
"JB, how are you now after your second PRP? Was it guided by ultrasound? I'm very interested to know your result, since you too are a chronic case. Had you tried shockwave before JB? I just saw a video arguing that rest after or between…"

Eli replied to Caroline Hall's discussion 9 months since surgery
"Good to know. Do you see any relation between having Fibro and PF? Could the first cause the latter, is what I'm asking. Know other people with Fibro who develop PF?"

Eli replied to michaela's discussion OK to keep on walking?
"Nightsplints are not for night pain. Read the explanation online, or do not, up to you.  They alliviate daytime pain also. It's 3 pm I have mine on. We all have pain as they day progresses. By allowing your plantar to rest in a good…"
