LD Rabbit replied to Mary J. Morrow's discussion Pain in the heels of my feet
"The greater pain after sitting is exactly what happens with plantar fasciitis.  i tried everything for a year and a half to solve the burning pain you described.  About a month and a half ago I started stretching the foot and calf many…"

"I discovered the Abeo Cort, from the Walking Company (noticed last week that they were on sale; don't know if they still are). It's got more cushioning than any shoe I've found. The right kind of orthotic, combined with a shoe like…"

LD Rabbit replied to Andrea's discussion This is the worst pain...........and I cannot live my life
"It's possible, but if it's heel pain, the diagnosis is probably right.  I hate to say it, but two weeks in the life of plantar fasciitis is not much.  It's stubborn.  I was told that it often takes 8-10 months.  It…"

"I spent a year and a half fighting an equally painful and debilitating case of plantar fasciitis, and finally found the solution--at least for me, and I suspect it probably is the solution for others as well.  I'd begun to think that I was…"

"Having using Voltaren for a number of weeks now, I've found it totally ineffective for PF, and that it gave little relief even to a sore little toe. BUT--the big news is that after fighting a very severe case of plantar fasciitis for over a…"

"I have tried Voltarol & Voltaran (same thing) even though I'm in the USA. In the USA they ridiculously put it as a prescription, so it's something like $100+ a tube. When my husband was in the UK I had him send me 5 tubes of it as…"

"I do like Voltaren, but A535 has always been my favorite for my aches. Have never used it on the bottom of the foot though and honestly I think cold is the better the way to go (as a lot of these gels/creams heat up the area). For the foot,…"

"Yes, the inflammation is (I should have said within the arch).  I am going to check out those Abeo shoes too.  While I was at the shoe store in my town (it's a local old school shoe store too and these people are pretty…"

LD Rabbit replied to LD Rabbit's discussion NSAID gels (Voltaren or Zorvolex)
"This is helpful, thanks. It's not that the arch is inflamed but that the ligament running through the arch (the plantar ligament) is tight, as is, usually, the achilles tendon.  This puts strain on the point where the ligament joins the…"

"I remembered one more thing I wanted to tell you. Apply the Voltaren to your arch and heel pad if you want.  The inflammation is in the arch which creates the pain in the heel for some weird reason.  Have you had xrays and/or MRI?…"

"I tried the Voltaren and it helped a tiny bit.  I applied it 4 times daily.   I had gone through everything you are doing. Except I don't know what a Strassburg sock is. 2 years and I finally had undergone surgery. I had the surgery…"

NSAID gels (Voltaren or Zorvolex)

Has anyone tried Diclofenac gels (Voltaren or Zorvolex)? In particular, has anyone's doctor recommended applying it directly to the fat pad in the heel where most of us have our plantar fasciitis pain?I've been fighting PF for over a year, doing tons of stretching, PT, cortisone shots, Strassburg sock, and still suffering.  I understand that you've got to be really careful with the fat pad in the heel, so I wanted to find out if anyone else has had experience with Diclofenac gels before I go…See More
