A THORN IN MY SIDE...? NOPE MORE LI...
Ted Gocke
Ted Gocke

I have been diagnosed by dozens of J103 listeners as having plantar flasciitis.  After internet research I have learned that plantar fasciitis is an acute form of inflammation of the band of tissue running across the bottom of your foot.  Every time you flex your foot, those tendons, ligaments, and tissue move and when they are inflamed, every movement hurts.

Mine appears to be isolated to my heel.  In the mornings or after sitting still for a short period of time-it aches and throbs when I stand to walk on it.

After standing for long periods of time it begins to throb and hurt.  It is not a stabbing pain-just an irritating throb.

It is reported to affect two million Americans in a year and 10% of the U.S. population over a lifetime.

Have you suffered through it?  How did you treat it?

I am trying to stretch it every chance I can, and believe it or not-trying to not over-exert it.  (You would not believe how difficult this is for me to do-to try to stay off of it!)

Please pray for me that God heals me quickly.

I also experience the same thing! It took me seeing two different doctors to get the best treatment. My saving grace.....going to an orthopedic doctor that specializes in feet and allowing him to inject lidocaine/depomedrol straight into the heel. I haven't had any more pain in 3 years now!!! Hope this helps!

My son had this. The doctor told him to get a coke can or similar sized/shaped object out of the freezer or fridge and place it under the arch of his foot each day while sitting, and roll it back and forth between the arch and heel. Helps with the inflammation. Taking advil was also recommended...800 mg every 8 hours for several days to a week.
