See my post on the shoe/orthotic message board on how negative heels can affect the back.

Thanks Ed. I have enough back troubles too so I def don't want that! I am sure that much of my other pain is related to my feet, though I was told I may have a connective tissue disorder years ago, they never did figure out what it is. I no longer have any lab work that suggests I have lupus or other disease, so it is all still a big mystery. Do you know of any connection to autoimmune disease and PF?

Thanks a million for you feedback, didn't mean to be bitchy if I came off that way.

take care
Carrie

A lot of patients with autoimmune disease have PF which needs to be addressed separately from the generalized condition.
