    Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include pain around the heel and arch of your foot. It may be worse in the morning. A friend has it and has tried a lot of things to help. You could start by using a tennis ball under your foot. I have never had it but according to my friend it is really painful. She has had steroid injections too. Theoretically you can help it by rest and raise your foot on a stool when you can

    put an ice pack (or bag of frozen peas) in a towel on the painful area for up to 20 minutes every 2 to 3 hours/wear wide comfortable shoes with a low heel and soft sole/use soft insoles or heel pads in your shoes/regular gentle stretching exercises/exercises that do not put pressure on your feet, such as swimming

    John , I had pain in my right foot for the longest time. It got bad enough that i couldn't walk on it what so ever. So i ended up putting myself on crutches til I was able to walk on it again. It was very time consuming. But using the crutches actually helped . I guess by keeping the weight off that foot allowed it to heel up quicker. I only moved around on the crutches when i had to go to like the restroom or going to bed for the evening. I did have one or two times that i had to go out away from home on them as well.

    Mines my right one but it gets loads of rest to be honest so really not sure why it hurts. But will try that if it gets to bad.

      John its very time consuming if you decide to put yourself on crutches. But I'll say this if mine acts up again like it did before I'll pull my crutches back out and put myself on them for awhile til it eases back up enough that i can put full weight back on that foot thats painful. It takes several weeks when you decide to go the rout of going on crutches. I think i was on mine for four weeks til the pain finally subsided enough that i could put full weight back on that foot.

    Hi, If you have it the thing that cured me was using Plantar boots off Amazon about £20 each tops. A plastic right angle boot that fastens with velcro to use when you sleep. They keep your foot at a right angle which enables the ligament to heal-dont need to be too tight. Without the boot my foot dropped at night and standing up in morning the ligament ripped every time.

    Sorted it for me and I'd tried everything before these boots.

    Hi John, The moderator won't allow a link-probably because the link was to Amazon & is a commercial firm. You'll have to locate them yourself from the description I gave previously.
