orthotics worked well for 3 weeks, then stopped working suddenly

Posted by sunshine on 6/29/01 at 20:08 (051903)

I've got chronic PF/HS like everyone else on this group, and have been struggling to get working orthotics for months now. It seems that when they come from the factory, they put a lot of pressure on my heel and it becomes very painful. But finally, my podiatrist got them adjusted so I had a miraculous recovery, for a few weeks. Then suddenly they stopped working again and they started pressing at the painful point again. What's going on? I thought we had finally found something that helped.
Any suggestions?
