I am sitting here with a sore foot tonight because my podiatrist gave me a cortisone injection tonight. I have a needle phobia and it was very traumatic for me. My dr used the freeze spray stuff and then a really LONG painful shot to numb my foot for the cortisone injection. the dr said my foot would be numb tonight, but it hurts! It was numb for the coritsone injection though... I just don't want to go through this again. My twelve year old son had to hold my hand and I about cut off his circulation, that numbing shot hurt so bad... I told my dr that the shot BETTER do some good, I certainly don't want to go through this again for nothing! I have had PF for only a month and a half and have been wearing Spenco inserts and my nikes (even to church) and taking an anti inflamatory drug for 2 weeks now... My dr says if the shot doesn't work, he'll start me on physical therapy. I may lie even if the shot improves my heel, I don't want to go through that again!!!
