Hi all. I've had my physio appointment this morning and it looks like I don't have plantar fascilitis - phew! He thinks my feet are just suffering from "overload" - I suspect this is a polite way of saying I'm fat and unfit! I probably just need arch supports in all my shoes, not just when running so my worst foot is taped up with a temporary support and I am to carry on as normal so we can assess the effectiveness in a weeks time. The reason for my title is that I decided I had plantar fascilitis and started using a heel lift insert in my shoes which may have actually made things slightly worse so please everyone get your pains checked out!
The good news it that I can go out with Laura later and see how I get on, it's OK for me to push through discomfort but I must stop if I experience severe pain. I am working from home today so plan to pick my moment - I need a window without thunder & lightening and when some of the lakes which formed overnight have subsided a little. My drive to the physio this morning was hairy to say the least!
Wish me luck!
