Ive had PF for 13 months now. When 1st treated, I got a cortisone shot. They Dr just shot my foot where I said it was hurting. It didn't hurt at 1st, but 2 days later I was in the ER and put on crutches. It finally went away and I saw another Dr, who perscribed in insoles. I have it in both feet. I wore them since them since July. About 6 weeks ago, my right foot flared again. Went to a new Dr (since I moved) and he did another cortisone shot (on a Friday). It didn't help any. By Wed, I was back in his office, this time for Oral steriods. Again this didn't help. Last Fri I was back in for a recheck.. this time he perscribed a Walking Boot. For 1 month. Its padded, and has air pads on the inside. I've been wearing this (almost) everyday since then. They only time Im not in it is 1 when I am driving. Where Im at if you are caught driving, or are in an accident with a boot on, its an automatic ticket. Or car accident, your automatically at fault. And 2 is when Im at home (I live in an RV) and I go from the bed to the bathroom.
I do not have it super tight, but I do have it hugging my foot. I have a sit down job, but I do get up to walk quite often. (I'd say 75% sit/25% walk) And I do have a long walk from my office to the bus, and then to my car (1/2 -3/4 of a mile).
Now we come to my problem, and I was wondering 1 of 2 things. 1, should I bother the Dr about this, or wait (I have 3 more weeks til I go back) and 2 - has anyone else dealt with this pain.
When I sit down, my foot aches tremendously. Doesnt matter how lose I have this thing. When I sit down after walking its even worse. Standing put great pressure on my heal and it feels like theres a rock in my boot. He said if my ankle or foot start bothering me, to let him know.. but I really don't want to just rush back to him cuz Im in pain. Im trying to give this thing a try.
