Hi. I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in my right foot yesterday. The pain started on Sunday. I'm no stranger to foot pain. Eleven years ago in August, I knocked off part of the heel bone in my left foot, and have a screw holding it together. I fractured my talus a few years later in the same foot and did so much damage there was concern that the bones in my feet might collapse. Luckily that didn't happen, but I walked with a horrible limp for several years until I did some extremely intensive PT about 6 years ago. I still have range of motion issues and constantly battle swelling in that foot.
Since then I've gained a lot of weight. And now I'm trying to do something about that. It's been almost a hundred days, and I've lost almost twenty pounds. But, on Sunday I was struck out of nowhere with foot pain in my right foot, the good one. On Monday I almost couldn't walk at all. I already had an appointment scheduled to see my internist yesterday.
He told me it was plantar fasciitis, but is going to send me to a specialist for to confirm. I'll get a cortisone shot in a few days when they get more in. And we'll go from there.
It's putting an insane amount of stress of my already bad foot.
