I have had the same thing from doctors. See my other posts. they think the pain is all in your head, let me assure you IT IS NOT! I had bunion surgery on my foot 4 years ago and the pain was horrible
and never went away. I also had plantar fasciitis. Doctors are verY ignorant. I tried all the traditional therapies including the stretching, orthotics anti-inflammatories etc. etc. etc. I got some relief, but not much. I finally began to think maybe there was something wrong with my metabolism, my ability to heal, or some other imbalance in my system. After reading some of the posts on this I decided to try glusocsamine and chondroitin. Within a week I began to feel some pain relief. Other posts on this sight mentioned B complex vitamins, and magnesium, calcium and zinc supplements. buying all of these is not cheap, but I have been on them for about 2 months. I am much better! I would say I have had a 75% reduction in inflammation and pain. I continue to improve a little each day. I can hardly believe it! I do not know if they will work for you but it is worth a try. Other people posting on this sight have had help with these. People with fibromyalgia have had relief also. I would be glad to talk to anyone on the phone about my experience. My phone number is 715-339-4362. Anyone can call me collect. If I can help anyone I am willing to do it.
