Don't know anything about oral steroids, but want to offer another perspective on casting. Was in a walking cast for 3 weeks, till all concerned conceded failure. First week I was weight-bearing and it felt like a BAD PF flare-up the whole time. Last 2 weeks were on crutches and I still had an aching heel anytime I rested it on the floor, as when sitting. Dr. did say it's unusual to have pain in a cast, but I sure did, in addition to pain in what used to be my "good foot." Am slowly getting both feet back to where they were before casting. Everybody really is different in terms of reactions to "treatment."
