Hi, I have had this for over a year now in both feet. First I was told to roll my foot over a can or stand on the stairs with toes on the step and lower and raise my heels, none of this helped. Another two months past and was back at the doctors due to the pain in both feet under Neath and on the outside of my left foot and in the back of my heels about an inch from the bottom. I shuffle like I'm an 80yr old but i am only in my 30s. I was referred to an orthapedic surgeon with suspected Plantar fasciitis, finally saw him and was told that he suspected I had Achilles tendonitis so would not be giving me cortisone injections in my heels. Was reffered to another hospital to see another orthapedic consultant, he had xrays done on both of my feet and they didnt show up anything and and neither did the ultrasound scans. Was told to carry on doing the exercises with leg crossed on top of my other leg and with one hand behind my heel while other hand pulls my toes as far as I can towards my knee. I have to do this 10 times for about 10 seconds each time then repeat on my other foot. So I have had Plantar and Achilles ruled out but as they don't know what's causing the intense pain I am getting they will not be treating me any further but have given me a 3 month appointment, it will not be made for me but if I am still in pain in 3 months they will see if anything is now showing up on scans or will do an MRI scan. After the 3 months if I have not gone back it will be referred back to my doctor, so I had 3 appointments at this hospital which is over 1hr 30min away and no better of now than when I started.
