Treatment Ratings

    Physical Therapy, Rest, Supportive Shoes
    Not Improved
    Ice, Massage, Stretching

Don't know what I did to cause the injury, went to foot DR, and was sent to therapy, massage and stretching felt good at the time but was hurting again in an hour or so. Tried rolling foot over frozen water bottle, again felt good but didn't last. Inner soles & heel inserts helps but hurt always comes back after a few hours. Lidocaine patch 5% does not help. Have a heart condition that won't allow me to take a shot in my heel. Resting is ok until I get up & try to walk around. Soaking in warm Epson salts water does nothing. On my forth month of pain at this time.
