Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis

21 Sep

Yes, it’s true. Both feet! I’ve been dealing with this sucker since July. Of course, I wasn’t able to get in to see the doc until the end of August because of multiple conflicts.

Consequently, I am taking things easy. Which is REALLY hard since the leaves are epic right now. I especially feel bad for my sweet Daisy who hasn’t been getting in her morning 2-3 mile jaunt. We’ve been keeping it close to home and I can tell that she is BORED. Hell, I’m bored!

As mentioned earlier, I’m still trying to figure out whether Pocket is better than just adding links here. Here goes! Lots of info for me!




Why pro athletes heal so quickly (advert)

Anybody else out there got some suggestions on getting over this? (And yes! I’m wearing the damn boot at night!)

    I just have to ask if you are on a statin drug for cholesterol? Three years ago I nearly had to give up cycling due to Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis in both feet. I went through six months of intense physical therapy with a sports medicine doctor, but nothing seemed to work. Turns out my statin drug was responsible — I stopped taking it and started feeling better in less than a week.

      Nope. RHR is 50, BP 120/60 and cholesterol just came back perfect. Still workin with the docs.

    Only time ( along with what you are doing) has healed my flareups over the last 40 years. Never know what will bring it on. Left both pair of orthotics I own in Jeep in Alburquerque when we flew home two weeks ago and am suffering from a lot of bike riding since we returned home w/out them. Only having one vehicle for several weeks has necessitated more bike use. Hope you recover soon.
