Have been struggling with this for 2 almost 3 years. Have been wearing a boot to bed for over a year, did 9 weeks of PT 2x per weed and 1 round of cortisone which was a horrible experience. I have been doing acupuncture since November, taking fish oil and soaking with Epson salts a few times a week. I feel the acupuncture has been the best out of all treatments but still am having issues.
