I can't believe it!  Just yesterday, I had a little flair-up of this in my left foot...   It's a little better today though, and hopefully a nice, restful weekend will put it back down.

If only we hadn't started talking about it, this would probably never have happened, drive!

That's what I wondered.  Of course, with me working on my feet all day on a bare concrete floor in $30 work boots, who knows?

Oh, those $30 work boots don't sound very helpful.  Maybe when you have saved a few bucks, you can get a foot friendly pair of boots.  

I salivate over the Birkenstock boots, but don't really need them.  My $ goes into birky daily shoes and sandals.  I have 3 or 4 pair right now (depending on if I count the pair that I don't wear anymore), that cover all the seasons.

My daughter is a Keen fan, and we were noticing the increasing variety of shoes that Keen carries.  There are now running shoes, shaped like real feet!  Imagine that!     There were fine looking boots, but not work boots.

I use a pair of Timberlane work boots(6 inch height) with a gel shock absorber block in the heel. They do run about $100 but I've had them over a year. I often stand or walk all day on broken ground, concrete, or asphalt. Cheap boots aren't a bargain IMO.

Food and shoes:  Two things well worth getting the best quality that we can afford!  

Well, and dental care, too.

Typically, I'm not one to go for cheap shoes, even if I'm a tightwad for everything else.  But I didn't really expect these boots to become work boots when I bought them.  They just did, and I have less money to spend now than I did then, so I've been making do with what I've got.

I did wear running shoes to work Friday, and between that and having the weekend to recuperate, my feet are definitely feeling better!  Let's hope it lasts....

since 2008, there has been the introduction of a new kind of footwear... it's called five fingers and basically, it's toe-shoes.

i was told 12 years ago that my plantar fascitis was so bad that i would always need orthotics and that i would never be able to go barefoot again etc.

2 years ago, i bought a pair of five fingers shoes, as i found them intriguing. The testimonials that i heard first hand convinced me to give it a try. It was hard going at first, as my muscles learned how they should actually be working, but within 4 months, my plantar fascitis was gone. I can now wear any shoes i want, go bare foot, what ever without any problems. I still wear my five fingers regularly.

something to consider if all else is failing

Here's what helped me. Mine was so bad it had become painful to even put my feet on the floor in the mornings trying to get out of bed. I can't take cortisone, and those who I've talked with that tried cortisone didn't find lasting relief. Now I don't have any trouble. 1. get the right shoes. 2. roll your foot (feet) around on a tennis ball or can to stretch the foot. 3. If you don't go to a foot doctor and buy the slanted board (which I did), then stretch your foot by pointing the toes upward as far as you can and holding them up for a while periodically during the day, or prop that part of the foot up on the baseboard of a wall, as if you are standing on a slanted board. 4. Massaging the foot while stretching it helps, too. But the wrong shoes can get it started all over again.

I first got it in summer 2009. I had strained my legs walking too much.  I got the wrong directions to go somewhere & walked a lot more than planned(after laready walking quite a bit that day already with some pain starting).
It took a long time to go away. I now have a little of the same type of pain in my thighs when I get up. It might be from some exercises I do at Curves. (I cheat there & stay on certain machines longer! Of course, that's when it isn't too busy. I'm still getting flabby - well, I'm almost 65. Duh!)
I also wear Crocs. Even the flip-flops give good support.  I'm glad I can enjoy  them again. They are one of life's simple pleasures to me.
I sure enjoyed the mild winter boxed in by 2 hot summers(which feel like normal summers to me). That means I got to wear Crocs more often & not have so many socks to wash! Yeah!
Well, this is the Midwest, so I expect lousy weather eventually. But it was nice & economical on my clothing/shoes situation while it lasted.

Quoted from Peppermint Twist

In a word:  Crocs.  Cayman style, specifically.  They fixed me!



OMG! I thought I was the only one to discover that Crocs are a miracle cure for PF! I have had flare ups off and on for years because of the line of work I'm in and as soon as I begin to wear crocs my feet begin to feel better.

[quote=3597]Ouch!..  been there myself...


It came back about 2 years ago just in my right foot. My weight was back up maybe 25 lbs, and I had also been "favoring" my right foot because of a plantars wart on the heel, and I think that is what started it....  VERY painful....


Off the main subject but my reflexologist/herbalist prescribed Castor Oil and Iodine (like when we were kids...in that little brown bottle with a stick attached to the lid.  It was red.  Now it comes clear.)  Anybody know what I'm talking about? Well, I had a planter wart on the ball of my foot and every evening after I showered I dabbed the wart with iodine/then dabbed on top the castor oil (or was it the other way around?? and put on a bandaide.  It was gone in a short period on time.... Definately less than 2 weeks but I'm thinking it may have been about 1 week!  It has never returned.  If you have no success w/in the 2 weeks, reverse the way you apply it... castor oil 1st then the iodine and it should work.  Sorry for the confusion but this has been a good 10 yrs. plus ago.

Ecobattar, it made me smile that you mentioned iodine. A few weeks ago I had a few small spots of poison ivy that were driving me nuts so instead of sticking adhesive Spots on them I decided to paint them with iodine. They were gone in no time! And I am a big fan of castor oil too!
