My cure was not fast, not sexy, and was downright boring -- I have been very diligently wearing my birks every day to work and taking the supplements learned about from this site. I consider myself as pain free as anyone with PF can get... Able to do most any activity I want to do.(Mall of America shopping, hiking, working all day mostly on my feet)
But, I know I could not abuse my feet by doing aerobics, jogging etc., I'm just really happy not to be limping and able to feel normal 99% of the time... but have this fear of it returning full force if I'm not very careful...this always being cautious gets to you after a while...so I want the end-all be-all cure just like everyone on this site.
Also, since I almost had surgery, and escaped it by learning about the birks from this site -- I like to let people who are just starting to get informed about PF know that even after 4 bad yrs of pain, birks worked for me and I'm doing great as long as I keep up my program.
I feel so fortunate that I did not have surgery --- and I try to let people know that any one who wants to avoid surgery can do it with birks. It takes a long time (3 mths +) and a lot of patience but it can be done. Every once in awhile I enter into the threads here to let people know there is hope afterall.
