Please be considerate and don't use all caps. It means you are yelling.

It sounds like you are experiencing PF, but without a medical review it can be other things as well. It's best to see a podiatrist before your 60 mile walk.

*If* it is PF, your doctor might prescribe, rest, ice, stretching, taping, orthotics and a myriad of other remedies that might be able to get you past this event or even cure PF.

Good Luck with it all.
