anyone ever had plantar faciitis?
About 4 years ago, I had extreme heal pain and was diagnosed with plantar faciitis (SP?). I had just had my 2nd child and was doing a lot of walking to try to lose weight. The pain in my heals got so bad, I was unable to continue the walking for a while. I received PT treatments and currently have no problems. I know however, that once I start walking again, I will have pain return. (This happened last summer too). Anyone else deal with this? Do I need to lose weight 1st, then begin to exercise? I plan to purchase some new athletic shoes in the next week or 2.
