Question: I am thinking plantar fasciitis is kicking in after years of original onset. Now it seems the top of my foot is slightly puffy, no warmth felt. Any ideas?

Brief Answer:
Can be due to arthritis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
Puffy appearance of the top of the foot may not be related to plantar fascitis. it can be due to arthritis or standing on your feet for a long duration. Give your feet some rest and keep these elevated on pillows while resting. Taking mild pain killers will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Can bupropion HCL xl be the cause of my having plantar fascitis or neuropathy? I have taken bupropion HCl xl 300 mg for app. 5 to 6 years. I am 58 yrs old. I have had plantar fascitis for 4 or more years and have had surgery on my right foot. I started taking bupropion because I had to force myself to go to work and I ask the Dr. to for an antidepressant the would not make me gain weight. I am now retired and my feet have gotten worse not better. What major withdrawal symptoms can I expect if i decide to quit taking buproprion?

I have sort of a rubber band type feeling around my right ankle, not all the way around, very localized in the achilles area. No pain, swelling or discoloration, just a very annoying sensation. Only when walking or putting pressure on the toe area, and only when walking barefoot or in sandals. Don't feel the sensation in a supportive tennis shoe. I was diagnosed a few years back with a Morton's neuroma. Could this cause a numbness or rubber band type sensation in the back of the heel? I suspect also that I have plantar fascitis but not so severe that I've ever been diagnosed with it. Thanks for your thoughts. Age 50, 5 feet tall, 150 lbs. No medical history of importance.
