something happened today. i was grocery shopping and hanging onto the cart wearily when the pain got unbearable. iwas about 3/4 of the way when it got to burning so bad i took of my sock and shoe. as i started for the door a loud snap came from my ankle and felt like i was hit with electrical shock. all of a sudden the pain was 50-60% gone??? gone with just 20% of the original pain when i started. it felt like a rubber band was wound up to the max and then snapped. what is this.will it stay like this. it feels so much better. or is this just temporay and its gonna come back. have anyone else experienced this?? please tell me this is normal. if you don't i fear it will come back with a vengence. i can live like this. it feels lots better after 8 hrs. im walking pretty good.. wadda ya think dr. ZZZZZZz

This is a new one for me. It could be some tearing of the plantar fascia
You performed your first pf partial release.

Wish I could examine you and then I would know exactly what happen to the foot and ankle.
