Correct diagnosis

Posted by Pauline on 4/29/00 at 13:45 (019606)

Can someone please tell me how the correct diagnosis for PF is made.
My pain seems similar to everyones yet I definately feel better barefoot. When I put shoes on I can actually begin to feel the bottom of my feet beginning to swell. They seem to big for my shoes and I get marks from the shoes on the top of my foot sometimes. I have been taking anti inflamatory drugs with little relief. The Physical Therapy using steroid cream and ultra sound seems to really
cause my feet to swell about 2 hrs after treatment. I am seeing an orthopedic foot specialist from a major university medical center. Seems like he should be able to identify PF . What type of Dr. should provide my second opinion.
