plantar facieitis

Posted by Jo B. on 5/14/03 at 11:08 (118689)

My doctor is sending me to a podiatrist but I don't know if I have plantar facitis or not as my pain is on the outsides of each foot in the middle - across from my arch, but when the doctor pushed on my arch it hurt too - the bottom of my heel does not hurt. He said to wear shoes all the time but that hurts worse and I prefer to walk around barefoot to relieve the pain. I work out alot on Step, walking two miles every other day. I did have a pinched nerve and went to physical therapy the first of the year and the pain all started then when I walked backwards on the treadmill. I also had old nikes which didn't give me much support. Do you think this is the problem?
