heel pain

Posted by Lindy on 2/24/99 at 00:00 (005033)

I've have plantar fasciitis now for over 2 years, will it ever go away? I'm 52 years old and just a little overweight. I stayed on my feet all day at work a couple of years ago with these great looking sandals that had no support. The next thing I knew my right heel going up towards the arch was killing me. Of course I didn't go to the doctor for 3 months until I had to. I can't really seem to find any support for my shoes that really help. And are there certain shoes I could get? My doctor gave me piroxicam for the swelling when it gets back. Any information on this drug? Thanks
