Just a thought

Hi, Beverly! I remember once about 7 or 8 years ago I had it in both feet for awhile - and I was scared. Today I look back and know this can be overcome if you are patient (rest) and persistent (in your search for solutions).

Since you did not mention use of a night splint or strassburg sock I am wondering if your PF sets up for reinjury while you sleep. As you know, your foot tends to point down while you sleep - this allows your PF and tendons to contract - which in turn may cause reinjury with first step out of bed (a common syndrome). Have you tried a night splint? I'm not saying it's a cure-all, but it has helped many.

Glad you found this Board. Good luck!
