Rae, I am guessing that by now you have figured out that you have PF. I am a runner of 25 years and have had it for 8 months. Just as you, I tried to run thru it. No way. If you have not already done so, read Scott's main document in this site. It is the best source of information on what works that I know of. Find out what works for you. I have been reading this message board for about 4 months. One thing is for sure, no two cases of Pf are alike and everyone responds to different things. One thing that I believe works for everyone is rest. For many of us, thats tough to do. Its hard to get around without using your feet. For a runner though, you can avoid that. For me, a combination of things seems to be working. The shots I had (2) were a waste of time. Things that worked for me are orthotics(custom and drug store), stretching, vitamine C, glucosamine sulfate, a Strasburg sock, and no running. Best of luck in your search and I hope you get back to running.
