Oh dear,one thing after another! Got plantar fasciitis. Had it for 2 weeks. It doesn't seem to be going away. Rested it. Iced it. Stretched it. Worried about it.
Wotswot? Any personal stories about recovery or non recovery here about it? Very disabling. It's okay cycling,but walking a no-no:within 100 feet I'm beginning to feel pain,200 yards and I'm limping.
To top it off,I've now got toothache. Yeh,that can be corrected. But the inflammation in my foot...
Had various 'injuries' before,but to add this to the pot is just getting me down

My foot doctor made great suggestions on the type of shoe to wear. I think you can google, your shoes could really be making it worse. Also, to never ever go barefoot. Sadly, even the beach can bring it back though I have good sandels now so it isn't so bad.

Remember it is inflammation, are you getting treatment? Taking NSAID?

Yep, going barefoot isn't helpful, neither is wearing flip-flops or clogs, since you're essentially "clenching" your foot to keep them on. There's a lot of good advice online about this inflammatory condition.

Freezing a bottle of water and then rolling it under your arch may offer some relief; it helped me greatly. If you can tolerate ibuprofen, that ought to help. Recurrent PF was one of the first signs that I had something inflammatory going on throughout my whole body. Best of luck to you!

Thanks Banana and Gardengal for replies. I see my rheumatologist this Weds. Already on Simponi and Sulphaselazine. Have some Naproxen which I am considering taking. This disorder is very disabling and I have no idea how long it is going to be with me or whether I can get rid of it entirely. Already have various covert disabilities that impact upon living and participating in normal life. This is just another one I just didn't want. Praying it goes away.Have read up on the condition, and treatment is often contradictory.

KT tape cured my plantar fasciitis. My physical therapist turned me on to this. On the KT tape website they have tutorials for taping for this and lots of other pain/injuries.

I have been working with plantar fasciitis for about two years. It seems like if you have AS/SpA it's hard to tell what's just plantar fasciitis vs PF plus achilles or hip or anything else tightness/enthesitis.

I have finally been making more meaningful progress since going to a PT who is working on my feet and hips together since they seem to be playing off of each other. Sometimes feet can appear to be the problem when the root issue is elsewhere.

I would definitely recommend trying PT!
