Questions and answers on "Plantar fasciitis"


Could this be plantar fasciitis?
I was recently diagnosed with Achiiles tendonitis, and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis (tendonitis on the inside of my foot). Ihave pain through my achilles tendon and on the insid eof my foot due to these issues. Recently, my heel and plantar fascia ligament has been hurting. I have pain first thing in the morning, and if I stand on it for too long, sit for too long, or walk for too long. Could this be plantar fasciitis? I go to physical therapy, and the physical therapy student said that my plantar fascia ligament is tight. When I go into physical therapy on Monday, should I ask them about it and have them diagnose me? The brace I have for my foot doesn't really have any cushioning for my plantar fascia ligament, would I need something different if I have plantar fasciitis?

My chiropractor suggests that I am suffering from plantar fasciitis due to the way I walk, the pain I am experiencing, and the condition of my feet . I am being fitted for a custom orthodic to address this. However, I also have what appears to be skin peeling from the foot most affected. When I go to remove the skin it is painful because in reality it is attached, it just looks like it needs to come off. Sometimes this same foot stings extensively as if experiencing some nerve damage. I apply a topical oil daily to keep the skin supple, but by the end of the day, my foot is irritated again. Initially, I thought I might have an athlete s foot condition, but my symptons are only slightly like AF. Could this be related to the plantar fasciitis?

Can low blood protein (6.2g/dl) have anything to do with the excruciating pain I am having in both of my feet? My doctors seems puzzled. I have fat pad atrophy, plantar fasciitis, and pez cavus (?) arches, but I am now experiencing severe burning on the soles of my feet almost all the time. The burning is a new symptom. I had two EMG's - one positive for tarsal tunnel, and one negative. The doctors suspect there is more going on. I can only stand for a minute or so and can only walk for a few minutes. Yesterday's blood test results only show low protein.

Could Vyvanse be the cause of my tendonitis? Since taking the medicine, I ve developed tendonitis in my shoulder , hip, ankles and feet. I feel tense when I m on the medicine and can t stretch out. At first it developed in my shoulder after a couple months on the med. I ve been running for years and have always been pain free. I developed achilles tendonitis and plantar faciitis about 4-6 wks later. I m still being treated and physical therapy isn t much help. I have to get steriod injections to help with the pain and I haven t been running in 3 months now.

doctor1 MD

While Vyvanse may increase irritability,muscle tremors and tics,it has not been reported to cause myalgia or tendonitis.You need to see a orthopaedic surgeon or a sports medicine specialist to establish the cause of the plantar fasciitis and shoulder problem.
