I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis for at least ten years, nothing is a cure, will have to keep stretching everyday the rest of my life.i have allergies to adhesive, so tapping made my foot raw with in an hour of the tapping. Had plantar fasciitis surgery , made my foot longgate and arch go totally flat. Have a hard time finding shoes . It was very difficult to work being that I I had to stand . Have no support in my foot ,when I would walk my gnat was off. I believe the surgery made things worse instead of better. Learn to live with it for a few years, then my gnat got really bad. I had taken Ciprofloxacin antibiotic for several things , was not aware that antibiotics can tear up your tendons.. I had post tendon tibula dysfunction. While waiting on an ok for Mri scan my tendons ruptured broke my ankle real seriously . Been two years since I broke my ankle and ruptured all my tendons . Tendons are always tight . Been through therapy several times. Walk with a cane now , because if I hit an uneven surface I lose my balance. Now I have problems with my knee and hip , I feel from my gnat being off. I feel that the plantar fasciitis surgery was the thing that weakened my arch and was the cause of everything else.
