Finding this site and reading all the stories makes me feel as though I am not alone. I was diagnosed over a year ago, and started out with anti-inflamatories, then cortizone, orthotics, stretching, icing; you name it, I've done it. My podiatrist does not even want to talk about surgery until we have tried every possible antidote. I am only aware of two more things he wants to try, a cast, and a night splint. In the beginning, I really thought I would be through this in no time, now, the pain is worse than it was two years ago (I suffered for a year before I even went to the doctor), and my right foot is beginning to hurt. I feel consumed with this pain, I am frustrated, and literally HATE PF!
In reading the number of stories, I am going to try some different stretching exercises mentioned on this site.
Is there anyone out there who has been cured of PF? I have not come across any success stories.
I would love to hear from you.
