Hi Rhonda--yes, I have PF in both feet (if that's the correct diagnosis). My pain has always been right where your's was--where heel meets arch at inside of heel. I also have a touch of metatarsalgia (sp?) which is slowly getting better. That pain is under the metatarsal/phalange joints. This is my sixth day in the wheelchair and I've noticed that although the pain is is not quite so bad it seems to be deeper--between the bones and the PF. I have always contended that I pulled or tore a muscle/tendon in there, but the docs blow me off. I'm also giving the wheelchair a try because my ankles and knees are starting to hurt because my gait has changed to compensate for the PF pain.
It doesn't sound like you have the typical PF pain either. What treatments have you had? Any shots? Are you satisfied that your diagnosis is accurate?
PS. I'm incredibly grateful for this website. Thanks for your note--hope you're feeling better.
