I have been gimping for awhile (read that as about 2 years)...and I knew I had Plantar Fasciitis...just didn't get an diagnosis.
So today I went to the Dr. to see what could be done. First off, I have a heel spur, that bites....but that isn't want is causing all the pain. SO..icing 3 times daily min...lots of stretching...LOTS of ibuprofen (like 800 mg 3 times a day! YOWZA!)...and no barefooting :-(
I told her I would try it for 2 weeks....see if things improve...I liked my Vibrams...but the Dr. recommended not wearing them for the majority of the time on my feet...SO...I am going to follow Dr.'s orders and wear the inserts etc etc.
If I can actually walk after a long weekend of agility it will be worth it...ugh...
Stupid feet...any thoughts on helping deal with this stupid PF would be great....yuck....
And on a somewhat odd tangent...how anyone could actually look at check out nasty feet all day is just disturbing...seriously...can you IMAGINE all the nasty things that Dr. has to see on a daily basis?? And the smelly feet, EWWW!!! I baby powered the heck out of my feet, I wanted them smelling like roses...OCD I guess.....icky icky, sweaty, smelly feet...grossssss
