The cortisone shot I had on Monday, 5/18 has been by far the best treatment I've tried so far. It was given in the inside of the heel, not the bottom of my foot. The shot hurt, but not as bad as some of the shots I've had in my ankle. The podiatrist thought I was going to have to have EPF this summer, so he tried this as a last resort after stretching, anti-inflammatory medications, heel cushions, and a night splint. I've been completely pain free since Wednesday. I was lifting heavy boxes this morning packing up my classroom so it can be renovated, and I felt not so much as a twinge. I'm pretty confident that even if the pain comes back, one more shot should cure me for good. The swelling in the fascia has gone down so much I can actually feel a difference when I press on the bottom of my foot.
