Jan -- Welcome!

Have you been diagnosed with PF, heelspurs, or both?

Please read the 'PF Book' (you can click on it above) for a good general orientation. Then please feel free to ask any questions. There are a lot of knowledgable folks on this board who will be happy to advise you. But we need to know your diagnosis first. Also, how long have you had the condition & how do you think you got it?

Hi Jan

I'm another 'new girl'. Welcome to the club. I feel very lucky to have discovered this web site a couple of weeks ago. It's extremely informative and helpful, and what I've learned from it has made me feel that I'm a bit more in control of the situation. Also, it's comforting and supportive to find there are others who are dealing with this problem and who know lots about it. So do follow Steve's advice, read the PF book, and post more information.

Good luck! All the best, Julie
