  • Mild Plantar fasciitis?

    I'm pretty sure this is what I have. Don't want to bother my busy GP at the moment as I'm not sure what they can do. I think the answer is in my own hands for the moment. I'm in my 60s and overweight so shedding some pounds is the first thing.  It started out with mild pain on the...
