Does anyone here have any experience with this? I have a very large bone spur on my heel and the Dr sugested surgery. However I cant take off work for quite some time due to money issues. Is there anything that makes this EXCRUCIATING pain any better? I have tried NSAIDS, Tylenol 3, Advil, Alieve, asprin, anything over the counter I can get my hands on as well. Please help! I work up on my feet all day long and I am worried that soon (very soon) I wont be able towork at all due to the horrible pain- Thanks
I suffer from plantar faciitis occassionally. I've found these remedies do wonders!

It usually takes about a week or two to start feeling much better. I use arch support shoe inserts, stretching techniques, ibuprofen, lost wieght, and apply ice packs. Surgery is rarely successful - I didn't do it. Did your doctor show you a diagram of what your injury looks like? I went online and found this and had a better idea of how to treat it.

i had plantar fasciitis which was very painful. I limped and the pain was horrible. I started taking a natural supplement that is wonderful. Within a few days, my heel pain was gone. I stopped taking it for a few days and the pain returned. This stuff is great. message me if you would like more info.
