    Foot Pain That I DON"T believe is Plantar Fasciitis

    Both feet hurt all the time, mostly on my heels, but the pain extends all along my foot-very tender to the touch, I sometimes can't even stand to have my heels touching the bed. Massage feels good after a few minutes, and I've noticed the pain often moves up past the ankle and into the calf area. I've tried stretching and ice packs,...nothing seems to help for very long.

    Have you seen a foot/ankle certified orthopedist? They are the ones who are experts at figuring out feet.

    Have you been checked for neuropathy, especially if you are diabetic? That can cause some pretty uncomfortable feet as well.

    My plan of action if I were you would be to have my family doctor check it out (in case it is neuropathy) but also make an appointment with a foot/ankle ortho (not a podiatrist) and have that in place in case the family dr thinks it is structural. I'd probably go to both doctors no matter what just to be sure everything is covered. You can find foot/ankle orthopedists are larger teaching hospitals or you can find them online by searching for foot/ankle certified orthopedists and then searching on the organizations' website.

    Hi, I've had PF surgery, and two others on my feet. Make sure you are wearing a good arch spt shoe, my ortho told me new balance. I also have fibromyalgia so I get every weird pain. I always kept a couple pairs of different shoes in my car so when they started hurting I'd switch out, that helped some. No flip flops!! Make sure your shoes don't bend/break at the back of the ball of your foot.

    See if you can get therapy. They really help.

    Good luck, cathy

    If you research PTTD you might find that the symptoms match yours. Plantar Fascitis and PTTD often go hand in hand. Are you seeing a doctor? You might want to consider seeking an opinion from a board certified foot & ankle specialist.

    Are you wearing good shoes?? Often if your shoes are too small or too big it could really mess up your feet. Try getting some nice gels for your shoes too.
