Tell us more!

If it isn't too much to ask can you tell us more detail from when and how it started, the symptoms, diet prior to and current, vitamins, any therapy,stress levels, magic stuff , etc. As much detail as possible.

Good luck, and don't test your limits right away.

Thanks

I have had PF for about 2 years in both feet, the left being the worse, and I finally decided in November that I could no longer live w/the pain. I went to Physical Therapy for 8 weeks, 2-3 times a week and it seemed to help. I was pain free for 4 days! Then one morning I tried to walk and the pain was worse. I was recommended to a Foot Dr. and he put a cast on my foot. That was the most painful and worst experience in my life. I talked to people and heard a lot of bad things about that Dr. so I found another Dr. She recommened Physical Therapy again and taped my foot. I only went 2 times because my insurance wasn't covereing what I was told it would cover ( the people @ therapy lied to me about the coverage). I went back to my Foot Dr. and she said that I should get fitted for orthotics and I did. I have done nothing different than what I was doing before. I guess it is magic. I hope the magic continues.
