my foot pain

Posted by melissa b on 3/26/01 at hrmin (042505)

help me please.....
it will be one year in may since i tore my planterfacial tendon. i have seen family practitioners, orthapedic surgeons, and podiatrist's and have had a walking boot on for 5 months, night splints for 7 months, orthodics and every streching exercise for my feet available. at one point, about 1 1/2 months ago, my pain had subsided a little, but now it is back with a vengence. i have tears in my eye's every morning with the pain, and all the anti inflamitories in the world are not helping. what can i do now?

Melissa, we all feel for you. Have you considered ESWT? If I were you I would look into it. I am 5wks post-treatment so I can' be considered an expert on whether this really works -- I have a while to go. But do look at some other people's progress on this message board, or even contact Dr. Z -- he may be able to offer assistance. And good luck!

Melissa, what stretching exercises are you doing? Sometimes stretching can make things worse.
