PF or TTS?

Posted by Rich on 11/20/03 at 12:23 (138086)

Hi Doctors

I was diagnosed 4 months ago with PF. I have tried PT, night splint, orthotics, ice, NSAIDS and cortizone shots with some, but limited success. I saw an orthopedic surgeon today for a 2nd opinion and he said there may be some nerve involvement.

The small area pointed to on this home page is sensitive to the touch. I have experienced a burning feeling on the heel a few times after using an ice gel pack, but i thought it was a reaction from an iontophoresis treatment I received. In general, my heel is visibly inflamed.

I don't really have shooting pain, but sometimes the inside of my ankle is tender. Could I have PF and TTS?
