vascular constriction from PF?

Posted by rick b. on 10/17/01 at 21:49 (063201)

I have mild chronic inflamation in my high arches. They are very sensative and orthotics just seem to irritate them more. However, most of my discomfort is from vascular inflamation on the bottom of my feet after walking. I have not read about this as a sympton from any one else. Is this a sympton of PF or is there another common cause of vascular constriction? I am other wise healthy, trim, have low blood pressure and excersize through cycling.

Rick:
Vascular constriction is not a normal finding in plantar fasciiitis. Where is the constriction occurring?
Orhtotics made for individuals wwith high arches are a bit trickier to make--your orthotics should not irritate them. One technique is to cut a groove in the orthotics known as a plantar fascial groove to avoid irritating the fascia via direct pressure from the orthotic.

The vascular constriction occurs on the entire bottom of my feet. Discomfort is felt where pressure contact occurs. The more I use my feet, the worse the constriction.

Consider seeing a vascular specialist. What does the skin on the bottom of your feet look like when the constriction occurs?
