Suffering for over 10 Years with Plantar Fasciitis

by Milly
(Ohio )

I have not had surgery for my Plantar Fasciitis but I know all too well about the pain endured on a daily basis.

I can hardly walk I stumble all the time because of the pain. I have been to a foot doctor and I was put on medication which was a horrible experience because the medication made me have horrible headaches and tylenol couldn't get rid of them.

I am so tired of all the pain I suffer everyday. I don't know yet if my insurance is going to cover my insoles even if it did there's no guarantee that they will work. I do the exercises and roll my foot around on a frozen can on Tomato Soup I know that sounds so funny but that's what my doctor said to use.

It does feel good and does give some relief for a little while but within minutes I am in pain again.

My legs especially my right one cramps so bad I think it's because all the pain I have and I have such trouble walking. I really feel for everyone who suffers from this. I always said to people noone knows just how bad feet can hurt unless they go through it themselves.

I was diagnosed a week ago with Plantar Fasciitis I am unsure if I would even consider surgery because I really haven't heard any promising things that come out of it and if it would even help me.

This really does take a toll on you getting out of bed in the morning is dreadful for me because I know as soon as I step out of bed I am going to be in such agony
all day.

I hope someday there will be a promising treatment for all of us who suffer with this. Until then I guess we will continue down a road of painful agony. Good luck to all who has this and I hope the best for everyone with this terrible pain.

Hi Millie.

I have two things to say to you. (Actually, I have a LOT to say, but I'll just say these two things for now.

1. Get your Vitamin D level up between 50-80 As Soon As Possible.

Guess what some of the Vitamin D deficiency symptoms are? Everything you described.

2. Read the Magnesium for Tendonitis page and the Magnesium Dosage page TODAY, and supplement as appropriate.

Guess what some of the symptoms of magnesium deficiency are? Everything you describe.

Oh, and guess what surgery can't fix? Nutritional deficiency and the pain symptoms that can cause.

Get those two bases covered, and let's see what happens to your pain.

Please reply using the comment link below. Do not submit a new submission to answer/reply, it's too hard for me to find where it's supposed to go.

10 years with same problem
by: karen


I have exactly the same problem & have had CT Scan/Xrays/MRI's about 10 times since 2006 & my Doctor keeps advising me .... "It will drop off"

I have just recently tried putting a hot wheat bag around the foot when its really bad & it gives me mobility for around 2 hours

When you wrote "Ice Tins' I laughed as I have also done this religiously along with the 20 Physio workouts, daily Foot stretches , Voltaren rubs & Acupuncture (which HURT in the foot) without any improvement.

I'm now looking at surgery.

Hi Karen.

What exactly is surgery going to address that is going to make things better?

What is the cause of your foot pain?

What did the CT scans etc show?
