Hi. I fell from some step ladders about 5 weeks ago....i thought i had just sprained my foot, so just carried on as normal...trying to ignore it.

The pain was so bad, 2 weeks ago that i ended up going to A&E... They said i had bruised my heel pad....they said it will repair its self.... The pain has become alot worse over the last 2 weeks, so much so, that its waking me up at night. Im in agony when i get out of bed in the morning and if i have sat down for more than 5 minutes...Its there constant.....the pain can have me in tears at some points.

Today, i had enough so i went to see my own GP. He has diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis. I have been told to rest it as much as possible....but when i rest it...it throbs, then i have the pain when standing and walking on it again. He has told me to take ibuprofen. I really hope this is going to help. :cry:

    Your friend is talking sense. If the pain is driving you to your wits end you really should see your GP and get this thing investigated properly, hopefully you will get sent to the hospital with a letter asking for a x-ray. Whatever it turns out it really is maybe itll benefit from a topical painkiller such as Ibuprofen or Diclofenac Gel or if its muscular even a nice soak in a scrummy bowl of hot water smile
