I really dont know what caused it! Iv'e had to epf surgerys done on it in the last 9 months, doctor thought it was plantar fascitis, sent me to a spealist after no results from 2nd epf, pain was increased. Nerve conduction tests came out negative but tinels sign was there. The shot he gave me last week has decreased the pain somewhat, can the shots take care of it with out surgery again? I forgot to ask him before he went on vacation if I should stay in the cam boot or shoe which would be the best?
