In Reply to: Foot Pain posted by Robin on October 19, 1999 at 23:35:27:

: About 2 months ago I started noticing that when I would get up out of bed in the morning or up from sitting for awhile it felt like I was walking on stubs and it was hard to walk. After about 5 or 10 minutes they felt pretty normal. But now I have been experiencing a throbbing pain in the arches of my feet. It's not constant but is continually getting worse. They will throb no matter what I am doing. In fact, I can be in bed and all of a sudden my right foot arch will throb for about 2 hours and then subside. Then I may be sitting at my desk and my left foot arch will throb for maybe 5 minutes, etc. Last night my left thigh on the inside throbbed for about 2 hours and when I got out of bed my calf felt like I was getting a charley horse. It feels like they are possibly nerves throbbing but today I am having trouble walking on my feet without pain. I do have high blood pressure and I am about 50 pounds overweight. Any suggestions of what this might be and what kind of doctor I should see?

I went to the doctor and found out that I have inflamed plantar fascia. I found out that it can be caused by several differant things such as wearing shoes with poor cushioning, being overweight (which I am), or standing for long periods. The doctor gave me medcine for the inflammation and I am going to physical therapy. I am also having inserts made for my shoes and I have exercises to do at home. The doctor said that it can take up to 6 months to fully heal.
