I have been to 4 POD's and none have had a MRI done on me. I have TTS for sure and was woundering why none of these doctors have had this done. Is it becuase they don't know how to read them or does a specialist tell them the outcome from the reading. Don't know anything about a MRI nor a Conductuction test. Doc said didn't need it. The tapping on the inside of my ankle really send my foot for a loop as it is.

Hi I am sorry I have not been up to date with the board so I am sorry! But maybe I can help.

I to had no MRI done or no nerve testing done,I had the pain you mention along with alot more. I jumped into a surgery that was said it would cure all my pain. Unfortuantly not.My advice to you would be this!

First ask around and find a GOOD DR. someone who hears you and your pain! If you are in constant pain and not sleeping and cant think right and are thinking of having surgery right now,Stop get to your Dr. and tell them you are in so much pain you cant make a decision now.

See A nueroligist get the nerve testing and see what he has to say! At least that is there specialty and you can see what he has to say!

I am in a pain clinic and for me I should have done all that you are facing and I sure wish I had it to do it again! If you want to read about me surf and you will see. I am very much happy I went to a pain clinic , unfortuantly It was to late I had the surgeries, I can never prove my Dr. did to much surgeries,I had two. But in my heart i will always regret not going to the steps seing all the doctors I needed to!

I could not make a important decision I was in pain no sleep pain pain and still pain after the surgeries. Now they tell me I will be in pain all my life and to hope for a 3 for a good day! I hated pain killers and meds really bad as I have a family member who goes to AA so I have always feared that and wouldnt have tylonol. guess what, I am on alot of meds and I am trying to work with my Dr. who tells me that they are needed medicationt to help with my body . I am not sure what to tell you that will get you to see another Dr. But I feel so scared that you might be me all over again. Because your Dr doesent think you need more testing.

I do not want to scare you or tell you what to do but read around here you will find all kinds of help there are some great Drs. here to they might be able to give you a good Dr. to try in your area! Also for every bad outcome there has to be good ones also so if you carefully look out for yourself you to might be one of the Good ones! No two people are alike so we have to take care of ourselves! What did your Dr. give you as to help this dx? Can you give us more about what he said and tell us how and where it gives you pain and tell us what has been done to help it? Have you read the heel spur book yet? It is great! Gosh if you have been here some time I apoligise about not keepping up!And my spelling i think it is getting worse!

Tammie,

Don't worry I will get the tests done for sure. Dr Z is suppose to see if he knows someone here in Salt Lake City. Anyway I have been in and out of the site for going on about 5 years now. If I need to have surgery I will, but not until I find out if I need it for both TTS and or PF. I think I have both. Pod thinks that too. But because of what you guys in here have been telling me I will proceed with caution.

Don't have time to go into detail on what I have done. I'm in allot of pain most of the time. Can only stand in one place for about 1 minute. If I keep moving I can go longer. The wired thing is if I stand in one place the pain is much different then if I keep moving. From standing the bottom of my feet feel like the will explode from pain. From walking they start burning real bad around the inside of my ankles.

Some nights I can't sleep but the neurontin helps. Tried rest orthodics, shots, tape, ice, naiads, stretches, even was on the first Jade trial. It alls started with a position change where I went from sitting to standing all day. I think it's a mechanical thing with my ankles. If I walk on the outside edges of my feet the pain is allot less. I think this is because my ankles are bent in. Relieves the stress on the tendon. Can't ware socks and it's a bit cold here in the winters. Oh I tried bricks too. Killed my feet. Anyway I'm getting ready to start back on the trail to finding a cure. I have taken the last year off from going to doctors. But now the neurontin is starting to ware off and the pain and burning is getting worse on the inside of my ankles.

Thanks,

Marty
