I suffered from plantar fasciitis several years ago. My doctor told me to never run without my prescription orthotics, he gave me a prescription NSAID and told me to take it easy until the inflammation went down. I followed his instructions and have never been bothered with it since. However, I am still struggling with the hip bursitis and sciatica issue, even though I was able to run on Sunday. I'm on NSAIDs for this issue and hope I will be back to normal soon. It's taking longer for this inflammation to subside than it did in my foot.
I've never had that or heard much about it. Sorry I can't help. I have plantar fasciitis though. Has anyone had that? I have had it since the end of my training for a half marathon in January (which I ran anyway--I know I shouldn't have). After my race I cut back more and more on my running thinking it would go away. I finally went to a foot specialist in April who confirmed it was plantar fasciitis. He told me no more running, only wear sneakers, no barefoot walking, tons of stretching, icing, and I am on prescription anti-inflamatory. I also have orthotics for my shoes and a boot to wear at night. Still not gone. I am really frustrated that this is dragging on so long. I would have never imagined it would take this long to heal. Anyone else dealt with this and how long did it last for you?
Has anyone had sciatica? I first was diagnosed with hip bursitis and sciatica. The bursitis is gone, but I am still pained by the sciatica. It's been about 4 weeks now. If anyone has had this, I would appreciate hearing how much longer I'll be plagued with it, as well as any tips that may help.
