lingering numbness after injection for PF

Posted by Susie S on 9/21/04 at 08:22 (160251)

I have had problems with PF for the last couple of years and have had iontophoresis, ultrasound, PT and have done home exercises. I recently had a stress fracture in the other foot and was non weight bearing so I didn't perform the stretching as well as I maybe should have. Since returning to work my heel pain has increased beyond belief. I had an injection almost 2 weeks ago and now I have a lingering numbness covering my heel. When I stand for more than a few minutes the pain kicks in and is just unbearable. This is my first injection. I am looking for any suggestions. I called the doctor and she thinks tarsal tunnel is possiblity and I have appointment coming up. Would appreciate any information you could give.
