plantar fasiitis

Posted by onely on 4/13/05 at 10:28 (173119)

My Dr says I have plantar fasiitis. I have terrible pain in the top of the ball of my foot that goes into my 3 middles toes. Everything I read say this is not plantar fassitis. Your comments pleas. Thank you.

Sure does not sound like it to me. I would get a second opinion.

If I was you I'd get an x-ray of the painful area to rule out pathology like a Morton's neuroma. It's a benign tumor and cause that type of pain. If it's not that then it might be a metatarsalgia (inflammation of the metatarsal heads).
