Thomas, thank you for all the information. I tagged Natra-Cure products and saw some things that Larry could use.
With Plantar Fasciitis how do you do all that mowing? Even if you do it over several days, that would be a great pain.
I found it easy to lose weight by planning my meals carefully, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and less starch; I have cut out potatoes, rice, pasta, and reduced the amount of honey and cream I use daily in my coffee. I use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate for my meals and don't go for second helpings.
I get my New Balance shoes and orthotics from a referral of my podiatrist and Medicare pays the bills. I'm also watching what is happening with Social Security and Medicare under this administration. I don't want to give up any of these benefits to make some wealthy person richer.
I forgot to add.... When I go barefoot around the house I use these .
I already have Plantar Fasciitis feet and wear orthopedic inserts. I also have pronation on my right foot which is why I wear ankle supports. I am also overweight. All my life I did a lot of walking.I also had swollen knee three times and my orthopedic drained the fluids out thrice.
Mornings before I get out of bed are the most painful times. Mobility seems to be the key to keep the pains in check. New Balance shoes sounds like a good idea. Did you order yours on line or bought yours at a store? I need ankle high shoes.
I also take extended release pain pills. They are narcotic, but is considered lightweight compared to others. It helps with my leg, back and neck pains. Sometimes I get injections in my lower back and it does help. But I had to go through a mirage of doctors to find the one that fit my needs.
There was no pint in living with pains if it can be relieved. Life is once and mine and there is nothing prove by suffering.
Have I been had?
Robustitude sounds legit and given enough time and usage it may become Oxford word.
"robustitude" is a real word now! It says what needs to be said and is easily translated into English.
Thomas - it's not a real word.
Thomas, what kind of arch supports and ankle braces do you wear? How can you possibly mow grass when your foot and ankle hurt so badly? I realize you said you didn't have what I have, but, are you not taking risks of having Plantar Fasciitis?
I wear New Balance shoes with an insert, as instructed by my podiatrist. They give me excellent support.
Yes, I wear orthopedic shoes and orthotic inserts prescribed by my podiatrist, and even with all that support, my foot made a popping sound, and I felt something, but it was not painful. The next morning, it was excruciating. I exercise it daily, as instructed. It gets less painful every day, and now the doctor told me to start putting full weight on it and start walking.
I keep the wheel chair handy and take a few steps down the hallway with my cane in hand. IT HURTS! And it is getting better.
I understand athletes get this because of the stress they put on their bodies. I don't know how they can go back to their sports so soon. It must hurt them as badly as it hurts me.
