Sidelined

I think it's plantar fasciitis, but it's constant, all day - and I dn't even have to be on my feet to feel the pain - like being stabbed in the heel. Plus the big toe joint is extremely sore. I have taken most of this week off from running and am trying t wear shoes with good cushioning and arch support. I think the cause was a combination of: running while fat, and wearing cute shoes. (I'd bought some great sandals at Macy's. They're a cork footbed, contoured, but probably not supportive enough.) So now what? I can't fit pool swims in, most days, because of the kids' summer schedules - by the time I get them to day camp the pool hours are over. (This week might be the one exception.)

I was feeling a bit better so played tennis today, for only abut 20 minutes. Now: agony.

I have two dr. appointments - my sports medicine guy on Tuesday, and a backup appt with a podiatrist next week, in case this appointment isn't helpful. My friend Janet, a dancer who lived through terrible PF, said it can take a year t recover and is always vulnerable to reinjury. (She gave me lots of rehab exercises, though.)

This really sucks.

I've had PF since a knee injury last July. I've had 2 cortisone shots, I sleep in a spilnt (to keep the foot straight) and have custom orthotics.

Today I saw a naturpathic doctor and began prolotherapy.

I don't have a lot of advice - but good luck! I hope it's just soreness and not PF.
