Sorry to hear you're aboard the Pain Train. The folks on this board are great. There is a lot of discussion about diet and how it impacts the pain. Also on shoes. Many of us wear orthotics. I wear sturdy cross-trainers with my dresses and skirts (a very chic urban look, so I am told! LOL). Stretching, ice, magnets, acupuncture, and more stretching have made a difference for me. And PF can come and go... Good luck to you, take care of them feet!

Thanks Raleigh for the welcome!
I am going to wear my Nike Air's to work today. Been having a painful week this past week. Not suppose to wear gym shoes to work but since I'm one of the bosses........ LOL!! I will get some shoes soon. Question! Everyone says they wear orthotics. What Im wondering is do you have to get a prescription one or are you talking about the over the counter pads and cushions you can buy. I have a little wimpy heel gel pad that does not help! Will update that too!! Have you ever tried wrapping your foot in an ace bandage?
Thanks!!!
