      I had an operation on both feet. Now I suffer from very bad painful scar tissue I am on pain meds every day. I have to plan things that I won't be on my feet much. Weather bothers it rain snow or when it goes from hot to cold or cold to hot so pretty much all the time. the pain meds help some but in pain all the time.

      I have had PF for a very long time-associated with foot issues from the past. Had 2 big toe joint replacements many years ago which I really believe was the beginning of PF. Just had another toe surgery which once again flared up the PF. Did PT for 6 weeks and it helped a lot. Doing at home exercises —-the pain is present when I overdo exercise or walking. Shoes are important and I was told (by the foot doctor) never to walk barefoot. It’s a chronic condition but I feel can be somewhat alleviated.

      I've had plantar fasciitis for about 7 years. I wear braces when I sleep at night to keep my foot flexed, I wear orthotics in all my shoes, and I try to do ankle mobility and strengthening exercises daily (this last one is very new, I did it for a while but then stopped for a long time). I have also done PT, cortisone shots, and acupuncture all of which have helped in the short term but hasn't seemed to make a difference for me long term.

      Hi what do you think about getting the Cortizone shot in your foot. I have been dealing with this since I had COVID in January. It is a awful pain. I am scared to get the shot due to the pain

      I even like the little rubber spiked ball to roll my foot on.

      I first got tendon fasciitis in my gym class back in my junior year of high school. I felt a sharp twang, like a tendon got stuck on something then snapped back in place. Since then, I cannot wear high heels for more than half an hour, and I get insoles for my shoes, Dr. Scholl's that are like $50 for a pair kind of special made for your feet. Tennis balls and flexing toes up and down to stretch the tendon are the only things that help me

      For me it's been surgery. Just had my 5th a month ago. Along with it I've had 11 heel spurs one of which tore my Achilles tendon. Now I've got tendinitis in both feet

      I have had it for a long time, not knowing. I always assumed I sprained my arches alot. I roll my feet on a tennis ball or frozen water bottle. I push my toes up against the baseboards as often as I think about it.
