a touch of PF

For the last few days I've had a sensation in my right heel. It's like there's a sewing needle imbedded in the far back and to the right. Is this Plantar Fasciitis? I looked it up and apparently it's very common with runners. Luckily for me it doesn't bother me when I'm running. But I fear that it could someday progress into a terribly depressing hobblement. So I suppose I'll take the course of action  I've always taken with my many injuries and ailments: a) ignore the pain. b) increase my activity level. c) plead  ignorance. d) drink more alcohol. e) run like the wind. f) get some kind of new accessory - I'm thinking maybe a seventies style headband… g) blog it!

Spurious nerve signals from parts growing old. Long as they still work, ignore, and run through it.

Thanks, JRA - I guess I am getting old!

I was worried this was going to be about PF Chang's. I'd rather have plantar fasciitis.

Good one, J!

I have had that ailment. Freeze a water bottle and roll you heel over it. Or just use a golf ball. Plantar fasciitis can get painful and can take months to heal.

Thanks for the advice, Midnight! Ride On!

Agree with Midnight Rider about the rolling. Also, I found that the source of my PF was not my heel but my calf, so lots of calf stretches and taking care of those really helped. Plus, Dr. Choy!

Thanks, Kristina.
