Plantar fasciitis both feet PLUS 2 aching ankles

4 months now, I've been suffering terribly with double plantar fasciitis and 2 aching ankles. I'm on my 2nd podiatrist but they are using conservative traditional methods that don't give me relief. I don't know where to turn anymore. I can't do anything. I hurt all the time, no matter what position. The only way I get some relief is if I lay in bed in the fetal position. When I get out of bed, it doesn't take long before I'm suffering again. HELP! I can't take it anymore. (I also have a herniated L5/S1 disc, and hormonal imbalances that helped me to reach 335 lbs. I also have sleep apnea and can't get a good nights sleep. I feel like nobody can help me. I've been on heavy pain meds for 10 yrs, but they don't help much. I recently got an epidural injection into my L5/S1 nerve root, but it made everything worse. Now my legs hurt too. It also feels like someone kicked me in the groin. Can anybody suggest a direction for me to go to get relief ?, (besides suicide).

Re: Plantar fasciitis both feet PLUS 2 aching ankles

I am so sorry to hear how things are going for you. Feet are the only things I know about so I can only offer a suggestion on that. Rather than going to anymore podiatrists, go and see a Foot and Ankle specialist (they are more specialised than a general OS). obviously try and see the best one around/you can Hopefully they can suggest something to give you some relieft.

All the best

I agree with Happyfoot--you should see a foot and ankle specialist. Some are trained in podiatry and others are trained in orthpaedics. Either way, call the trainer's office of a local university or professional sports team--they should be able to provide you with the name of a foot and ankle specialist.
