Question Help!!!

Hi there,
I've posted here before and I still have the same problem. I see my doctor in just under 1 week and I will be asking for x-rays. My problem is with my heels, that is the main source anyway but it does spread in to other parts of the foot. My feet are at there worst in the morning or after being a bit active during the day. It doesn't take much at all to get them to start acting up. It is so painfull it almost feels and though my feet are broken and I shouldn't be walking on them at all. I know 1 or 2 of you have suggested that it's plantar faciitis and after researching that it sort of sounds about right. So, basically my question is, Can plantar facitis show up on x-rays? And what do you do about it if that is the problem? Also are there any other possibilites as to what this may be? I guess you should know that I suffer from Spondylolisthesis, sciatica, lumbar lordosis and have a pars fracture at L5-S1. Well, any information that anybody can provide would be very much appreciated. Thanks a lot. Kristy.

Re: Help!!!

try putting water bottles in the freezer and then rolling your feet over them.

Re: Help!!!

It sounds like PF to me...I have it on my right foot. The frozen water bottle thing really can give you relief...also stretch out the toes...feels good! Are you seeing a DR?
