thanks for the note! I've had all the conservative treatments and I've also had a cortizone shot in each foot. The shots hurt terribly but didn't work. My feet feel a lot better in that arch spot since I got rid of my orthodics. I've had both soft and hard orthodics and now just use those $20.oo polypropaline inserts with a tuli cup on top. Since doing this I no longer have that severe pain in that arch spot. It used to be so bad (for 2 yrs) that I couldn't even touch it lightly!). But now I can press it firmly without pain. However, I can't stay on my feet long because it hurts too much. Yes, I did have a diagnosis of PF which I've always suspected as being incorrect. I also developed severe tendonitis in my right arm and scapula area at the same time that my feet flared up. The Rheumatologist suspects an arthritis of sorts. My doctor says that the foot surgery may not be good for people with general inflammation and that it could cause further inflammation and scarring. Anyway, hang in there! I'll keep you up on any other developments. Rhonda
