Roy, I, too, have this problem. I had surgery on my left foot in June of this year for both tarsal tunnel and plantar fasciitis. It is also in my right foot. I don't feel I got much relief from the surgery to warrent having it on my right foot. I'm trying several things I learned from this site, including splinting both feet at night, stretching, ibuprofen, and gucosomine. It was feeling better until this morning when I steped on my foot wrong. Now it hurts again, so I'm icing them. I know what we need is to rest our feet, but at this time of year, who can do that? Hope you feel better soon.

I think I must have the same problem because my ankle hurts, down my foot and into my toes. Almost feels like I have twisted my ankle but I haven't. Sometimes I have tingling in my foot and toes. So, not only does my heel hurt and the bottom of my foot but the side and top of my foot hurt as well. The more I am on it the more it hurts. I saw the podiatrist once and he thought there might be some Tarsal Tunnel problems but now I have to wait to get another referral from my family doctor to find out for sure. (HMO's - yuck!) Anyway, I wondered about surgery but from reading Sally's experience, it doesn't sound like it works. Let me know if you find something that helps.
