More on Plantar Fasciitis

Whoever, back in history, came up with plantar fasciitis as an ailment to give to people like me should have been shot. This thing is really perverse.

Originally I thought it would take care of itself in a month or two. No such luck.

It has been a year and a half now and I have to admit that my left foot really does feel almost normal. The only time it aggravates me is first thing in the morning when I get up. There is only one problem. Feet generally come in pairs and I think the right one felt it needed some attention.

Asked the doctor and he confirmed it. Good fitting shoes all the time except IN the shower. No slippers. Do the exercises, especially pulling the towel just before getting out of bed. This one really does work wonders for me.

He even suggested that a good insole or just heel support might help. Try what works for me.

This is very discouraging but at least I know that if I do take reasonable care that I will get rid of it eventually. Why did it have to happen in the best walking weather in the year?
