Dr. wasn't any help at all. Went to 2 different drs. and same message. Both said I was wearing the right kind of shoes and that basically the ONLY thing that would help was an injection---not something I wanted to try. I've tried stretching exercises, rolling my foot on a frozen bottle of ice, hot baths with Epsom salt, ice packs. Last dr. even prescribed a "pain" med. Didn't touch the pain at all. Turns out it was a pain for nerve pain. She said more than once that it was a muscle pain.
