Hi May. I too have suffered from pain in my left foot since May 2005. It has taken alot of work to get to the point where I can go for walks again. Here is what I did:
1. In the acute stage, ice your arch with a frozen water bottle 3 times/day.
2. Stretch your calf and ankle by putting a rolled up towel under the ball of your foot and pulling it toward you from a lying position before you ever get out of bed. Do a calf stretch for 5 minutes every 2 hours.
3. Wear stiff shoes that do not flex with arch inserts. I found an arch sleeve on Footsmart.com that supported my arch even better than the inserts and I wore it for 2-1/2 years.

Hope this helps you. If you keep up this routine and be patient, it will eventually get better.

May God bless you richly....Chris

Hi, my name is May. I don't know whether I have PF or not but I have alot of pain in the bottom of my heel. Sometimes I can barely take a step. It gets really bad when I have to stand for extended periods or walk far. The pain is mostly in my left foot and started in May 2006. It recently eased up a bit but today it is back again. I did a lot of walking yesterday while shopping.
