No one ever suggested that before. Though I’m wondering if the pain will ever leave. It was caused by a punishing 8 day hike in 2018 even though I have years of hiking and training before with no feet problems ever.

  • Mine is in the middle of my foot..I’m in my feet 12 to 18 hours a day..they put me on steroids and some meds.. which I will only take when it’s so bad that I can’t handle it..I use to have really high arches but with the swelling you can’t tell..when i first wake up and after I been on my feet for 9 hours it starts back up… I tried all different kinds of shoes.. nothing..I’ve tried foot inserts nothing,.. only time the pain kind of stops is when I don’t have shoes on.. I can’t take work off..and I don’t want to be on meds all my life..I also don’t want needles in my foot… It gets so bad that at times I’m in tears… I hate it..I’ve only had this problem for about 8 months and it seem like it happened over night…

  • The pain is so bad that wakes me up in the middle of the nights. Im supposed to exercise 5 days a week because of my heart and bow I can’t. It hurts so bad and I don’t know what I did that cause me this horrible pain. ��������

I also need to lose weight but I can’t do my walks what can I do I’m sure a lot of it has to do with my weight ��

  • I’ve had this for around 2 months now, for the most part I just ignored it, but always wondering in the back of my mind what’s wrong.
    Suddenly this morning after waking up, the words “plantar fasciitis” came to my mind. After googling it up this video came up which reminded me I had this condition happen to me before, just a few, maybe 5 years ago and that I had watched this very same video when it happened. I’m surprised at how bad my memory is.
