Pain at the area where the band of tissue referred to as the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot inserts into the heel bone. Too much tension brings on pain. Wearing flat shoes, going barefoot on hard surfaces can be some of the causes that bring this pain. Do not let it linger too long. Can last for months. Pain mostly when standing up ...Read more
Ask your sugeon: I am kind of surprised this question would be asked after the surgery and not before. All doctors have different protocols. You did not mention if you are on crutches, in a cast, in a splint, allowed to walk? Did you have the plantar fascia cut? Was a bone spur resected as well? All this info would be needed to know. Without knowing i would tell you 6-8 weeks. But that depends on many variables. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NEED FOR SUPPORT!: Most shoes aren't that bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! there are many possibe reasons (posterior tibial tendon dysfunction leaps to mind) that you may have pain in the feet, but try arch supports like spenco polysorb (http://www.Spenco.Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb) and otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve). If these don't help, see a podiatrist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tried NSAIDS for plantar fasciitis pain which offered no relief. Is time and ice the best medicine to treat?
Time & ice: are excellent to use for plantar fasciitis. I also highly recommend stretching at least 3x/day, massaging the area with an anti-inflammatory (natural or prescribed), wearing supportive shoes, not going barefoot when walking, and refraining from aerobics or jogging for around 6 weeks! NSAIDS and local steroid injections can be used, however not always needed. Surgery is not typical. Get better! ...Read more
I was bitten several months ago, reaction bright red on feet, on fire, peeled several times. I am experiencing plantar fasciitis, is this from bite?
Not likely. : If they are at all related, it would likely be due to the way you have been walking. After the bite, if you were in pain, you would have changed your gait to compensate for the irritated area. You may have strained the arch and heel and caused plantar fasciitis to develop. (but most likely they are entirely separate.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How would you know if plantar fasciitis is chronic or not? By the number of episodes w/I a period of time,or is there a test a podiatrist can perform?
I have plantar fasciitis on my left heel. It started 6 weeks ago after running a series of sprints with "barefoot" shoes. I typically do sprint workout 3 times a week with better padding. Since it has not healed How long to discontinue sprinting?
Ask your doctor: especially if your not healing well. Get a second opinion from a podiatrist to see what the cause is. If calcification's present from a heel spur, then you may need to have it lasered. Probably won't go away on its own. Always get 2nd opinion. You may have more going on than you think! So see a doctor soon. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
