It was not from an injury, that I know of... Have not had problems till Feb of 2015 when I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis . I had to come off the Maintenance (life) from a diet where I lost 50+ pounds. When I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis, I had to replace the "fiber" I had lost from the (diet) I was on. So I gained all that back plus some... Now.. I suffer with Planter Fasciitis. Have had 3 sets of Cortisone injections, have done exercises, therapy, am wearing the boot for 3 more weeks... on the 22nd of this month they (my Dr) wants to do 3 sets of the Estracorporeal Shockwave Therapy... (not covered by my insurance) so I can't do it... And I still hurt.... What do I need to do? Please get back with me..
