Re: I'm a new sufferer of heel pain.....HELP!!!!

I wish I could tell you a pat answer for relief. Unfortunately, the thing I learned on this message board is not all feet respond the same. I have suffered for almost 3 years. I have gotten cortisone shots, night splints, orthotics, anti-inflammatories and finally this summer was in a cast for 4 weeks. Finally relief! It took a while after the cast was off, but now I'm able to go grocery shopping without intense pain. It's not completely gone and if I over do it, I can feel it. But I'm the best I've been in almost 3 years and can do some of the activities I've missed so much.
I think the secret is to keep trying different things, keep reading this message board for ideas, and Birkenstocks also have made a tremendous difference! Good Luck!
