It is funny that you should mention this. When I first got PF I knew several people who had it. In fact when I first noticed it I was sitting on the couch rubbing my heel and commented to my roommate that my heel hurt. She said, "You know, mine does too" And then went on to tell me her uncle was having the same problem. It was through him that we got some literature on PF that he got from his doctor. Soon after that there was an article in the local paper. I knew I had PF before I even went to a doctor. By the time I went in I knew more about it than he did from all the reading I had done. Within a year I found out 4 other friends had it. Since then most have gotten better. I'm the last one to be still having problems, but that has improved.
Maybe it is something people don't talk about to others unless they have it too. Kindred spirits stick together.
