as you can see from the title, i have been diagnosed with persistent plantar fasciitis, I've had existing pain for coming up to ten years but as a child it did not seem very serious because all my family have very high arches and i just assumed as any child would that it would sort itself out and there wasn't anything wrong.
i was diagnosed around a year ago and so far I've been signed off physiotherapy because it is a "natural injury".
i have tried many treatment options including; Physiotherapy, Reflexology, arch supports, heel supports, massage balls, ice treatments, compression socks, shockwave therapy, insoles.
all health care professionals and private specialists i have seen all seem to tell me different things.
I'm currently on a 6 month waiting list to go and look at more treatment options but i am desperate, as it says in the title, I'm 19 years old with this condition and some days i struggle to walk, i collapse and I'm in pain i wouldn't wish upon anyone.
the pain itself is always present.
if anyone has any suggestions or treatments they have tried i would be very grateful.
