plantar fasciitis and sore calves , tight quadricepsrelated ?

Posted by simon on 5/27/02 at 08:40 (085339)

I have learn about plantar fasciitis about 5 years ago when my heel aches like nobody business. I went to see some 'specialist' but they only recommended me some therapy excercises with towels and basic stretching.

Over the years, i realised that tmy calves is sored almost everyday, and i yearn for somebody to put some rubbing pressure on my aching calves every day. SO every night, i do my streching to ease the pain but it only relieve but the pain never goes away as I had wished.

Soon I realised when i sit for long, my quadriceps also tighten to the extent it appear sore 'that as if I have made a 400m sprint after few years of sendeatry life'. And the funny thing is that I was just sitting there playing mahjong with three other players.

Are all these symptoms somehow related and how to ease these pains ?
