Plantar fascitis ...ouch

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Well I am having a flareup with plantar fascitis ....ouch... it hurts my feet when I first get up or if sitting awhile and get up my feet hurt a lot. I am doing stretches in the morning before I get out of bed and then doing a stretch against the wall to stretch the tendon in my foot as needed.

Just a small annoyance right now ....hoping it does not get any worse. I have my ice water bottle ready if I have to ice it.

    Hope the feet are feeling better soon, my husband bought inserts and that seemed to help him alot, also needed to rest it a bit to heal :) Wishing you the best week, My friend!

    Hope they feel better! I dealt with PF for 10+ yrs. Was finally referred to a podiatrist who gave me cortizone shots and have been pain free for 3 yrs. :)

    My sympathy! Had PF in both feet, repeated times. Tried stretching. Tried sleeping in special boots (different versions). Nothing helped until my trainer suggested Lynco Orthotics. I got mine from a local retailer who suggested the correct style for my feet.

    I have planter fascitis too. The frozen water bottle is helping the most for me right now and I am only comfortable in Birkenstocks - ugly sandals but better than limping all day. Hope yours is better soon. emoticon
