Default plantar fasciitis

does anyone experience plantar fasciitis? I *think* its what is causing my foot pain(have Dr appt).... esp. in the mornings or if I sit for awhile, when I walk its extremely painful (heel area)... did some research and some say it could be Lyme diease but I haven't been around any ticks......

if you experience this pain, what can I do to help with the pain?

I was diagnosed with this once... but I don't know a lot about it really.
I know that wearing the highest quality walking shoes are best with the best insoles. whats best for me is New Balance. I payed so much for them but its worth it.
also I remember my dr telling me to help it you can take an empty plasic water or soda bottle ( I think the smaller size kind, not the 1 liter or 2 liter but the 20 oz or smaller ), and fill it up with water and then freeze it. then when its frozen , you can put it under your arch and heel part and keep it on it off and on and it may help it feel better ....

also, I hope you don't have anything like this but I did just think of some other foot pain I've had recently. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes and as a side effect from it you could get neuropathy which can cause foot pain. I used to have neuropathy but since I now am on the right kind of diet , it has mostly gone away

Hi, my partner was diagnosed this last year, the pain is only just dying down, it's where a spur of bone has grown downward in the heel and is rubbing on the tendon, he has tried so many things, he was due to have an operation the file the bone down but didn't have it. If you need any help I know so much about it xx

thanks.. I don't think is is Neuropathy as I had this in my hands when I was on Chemo a couple of yrs ago... that indeed hurts like He##... this feels like a very bad bruise on my heel area and bottom of foot esp. in the morning when my feet first hit the floor

I did buy new shoes, several pair in fact (Nike)... I wonder if its the shoes.... I do usually by WIDE but Nike didn't have WIDE so I bought the regular width ones... I am going to take a look at those New Balance ones...

thanks Pidge, I hope your moms test comes back ok.
mine is Type 2 diabetes but since I got diagoned that motivated me to lose the 60 pounds and eat a healthy type diet ( one that's good for diabetics, so I cut out all sugar and a lot of carbs I cut out also ).
before that I was really in a very unhealthy eating mode. Its kind of like , I have this addiction to sweets and junk food and just want more and more when i'm eatin it. but now I am in a healthy mode and feel so much better and my blood levels have improved so much since I've been eating healthy and losing weight and excersizing .

Jan,
yes, take a look at the new balance walking shoes. theres a lot of really great makes but I actually chose the new balance cause I also have wide width ( actually extra wide width ) , and new balance carries my size.
I couldn't find the width I wanted in the regular store here, so i ordered the online ... I cant remember the site I got them from , but I know they had a great return policy, so I took a chance and it worked out perfect for me
