Today, with the help from this site and starting the advice I found here such as: taking the glucosamine, vit. c, vit.e, calcium with magnesium, and wearing Arizona style birks 100% - I got rid of that pain. It takes at least 3 mths. of doing ALL these things religiously to actually get on the road to pain free. Then depending how bad yours is and how long you have had it - it could take longer doing these things. I had 4 bad PF yrs. and have now been on this recovery program almost 2 yrs. now. For the past year, I can do about anything normally (work on my feet, shop till I drop, hiking) but would not consider jogging or aerobics or even power walking - as I am curtain in my mind that these activities would result in my PF returning. You may have to may some adjustments to your life too - or live with the pain - seems most of us can't do it all anymore. Good luck to you - you're on the right road starting with this site!
