Recently diagnosed with plantar Fasciitis

Posted by Joanne on 8/21/03 at 23:19 (127615)

I woke up yesterday morning in a lot of pain unable to walk. I decided to go the ER. The doctors there diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis (I have never heard of this before). The pain is so severe, that it's impossible for me to walk. My feet (especially the right foot) have been swollen since yesterday. What can I do for relief? My appointment with the podiatrist is 3 days away. Please help………..
