Re: Causes-let's summarize to prevent future PF

PF, in addition to all the causes everyone mentioned, can be caused by rheumatoid arthritis or by Lyme Disease. My doctor did a research paper on "Foot & Ankle Disorders" Resulting from Lyme Disease. He mentions PF as one of the disorders. When I first developed PF 7 years ago (which I still have), I was tested numerous times for RA & Lyme. So, if all of the others causes mentioned don't seem to apply, then maybe it's worth looking into.
