Has anyone ever had plantar fasciitis?

I'm a runner, and since November I have been getting a stabbing pain in my left heel...it's been worsening to the point that I feel it all day long. I'm convinced its plantar fasciitis. Has anyone here dealt with that? I am making an appt tomorrow to see my doctor, and have stopped my runs for now.

I did. I had to have shots in my heel and taped up my arch. It didn't help me and I had surgery but if you catch it early you can get orthodics for your shoe.

My father and I both have it. I take naproxen every morning and I am usually pretty good to go. Make sure you have excellent shoes and invest in a good foot soak for the end of the day!

Left heel? Does it go away after a few steps? I have plantar fasciitis and a bone spur and the bone spur is what gives me the pain you are describing. I wear insoles and that helps and since working out I've noticed a difference with the plantar fasciitis. I want to have surgery to remove the bone spur, the pain is so horrible.

I had it but I don't run. I had pain running up into my leg too though. It was an easy "fix" for me - I had to buy good tennis shoes, wear them instead of any other shoe for a while, stretch it a few times through the day, and tape my foot/ankle to hold it at a 90 degree angle when I slept to keep the muscle stretched, instead of letting it relax and let the muscle shrink. My dr. said in extreme cases people have to buy high-top shoes and wear those to bed (that's why I taped - to prevent having to do that).

I do and it sucks. They will tell you to do stretches and that they can do cortezone shots every 6 months or so. Stretching helps a little, but not a lot. Make sure you buy inserts for your shoes, and that you don't wear a lot of high heels or shoes with little padding.

Other than that, I still have problems. I can't be on my feet for more than 2 hrs without pain.

Yes, left heel. The pain gets more tolerable during the day...but when I first stand after sitting or resting its unbearable!
