  • I have had a lot of foot problems, firstly Plantar Fasciitis and then Achillies tendon problems which I still have. I love walking but have had to cut this down a lot.

    What did help for the Fasciitis was going to see a podiatrist, he made me a special insert that fits into my walking and everyday shoes, this cured the Fasciitis. It's worth investigating.

    I had a cortisone injection into a joint in one of my feet recently, like you I am concerned that it is masking a problem. Although pain is unpleasant it is sometimes a sign to slow down.

  • Thanks will look into podiatrist tomorrow have one attached to GP surgery. Did exercises that were given ,me been me went full tilt don't think it was a good idea calfs burning when I got up today.

  • I posted about the same problem a few weeks ago and got a lot of helpful advice. Strap round your foot with athletic tape, wear heeled shoes, stretch your legs before getting out of bed and yes I have an insole which does help I think you should be able to bring up all my replies if you put in PF Best of luck.

  • Thanks tallgal found your post read all replys fell a lot better. The info from GP was quoting 12month's to heal that's what floored me just getting order back in life. One thing pleased me I hate slippers after this year of GCA seemed to live in them for months so after dressing into house shoes just as my mum and gran used to do
