i have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis which in addition to heel and foot pain I also have tendinitis around my ankle and in my Achilles. After 7 months of pain, using ice, antiinflammatories, heel pads, weekly physio and doing calf stretches etc daily, I’m now experiencing a return of heel pain when getting out of bed despite this having stopped about 2 months ago. I’m told my condition is due to osteoarthritis in my foot (which causes no pain at all at its location). I’m a fit person who normally does Pilates, yoga and hill walking, but am now only able to walk about a mile so I’m finding this really hard to adjust to. If I do any more the pain and inflammation increases and I’m told by my physio its a sign I have done too much at this stage of my healing. What are other people’s experiences of healing when they have been told they have osteoarthritis in the foot? Does it ever heal? Is there anything more I could do?
