I just read your post and said a prayer for you that God will be with you and help you and keep you calm and you will feel His presence and peace.

As in that was it. I read about what I was experiencing on the net - arch/heel "pain"/stiffness, limping when getting up from bed or after sitting a long time (which I always do...) ugh!!!!!!!
I finally did stretches & it was feeling better - I was even able to go hiking for a few hours in April!
But then it got worse again & I FINALLY went to a podiatrist.
I hate to go to drs, don't trust em, but I was at my wits end!
So after trying some Spenco orthotics, it got better, but then worse again.
So I had the real deal ones made for 400$ (of COURSE insurance doesn't cover it ) and thought in a week or so I'd be back on my treadmill.
Well it's been 2 months & I STILL can't walk for long - even NOT on the treadmill, without some sort of ache/"stiffness".
I'm SOOOOOOOOO frustrated I don't know what to do anymore.
I am thinking of going to a different podiatrist.
Seems alot of times people are NICE, but that doesn't necessarily mean they know what they're doing!
I still limp around - makes me feel like 100!
I used to walk FAST!!!!!! Now I can barely walk normal!
It's just my right arch/heel. But AAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!
I AM about 20lbs overweight, (for some reason every year when I go for a checkup I'm almost 10lbs heavier! Lucky I was skinny to begin with! )
so I guess that doesn't help, but how in the hell can I lose weight without exercising?!
I really don't eat that much.
In fact I believe the weight gain came from age (slower metabolism) and LACK OF EXERCISE!!!!!!!
I used to walk walk walk.
Now I sit sit sit.
But anyway, maybe that's what you have. Look it up.
Hope you don't, although it's NOT supposed to be this difficult!
My dad had it - he walks ALOT! 8 miles on a treadmill - but the orthotics worked for him!!!
Same for mom! She doesn't exercise much, is overweight, and they worked for her.
Why aren't they working for me?!
Sorry for the long post...Frustration...
AND I need a root canal...

Thanks Elf...I should look it up too. It's also my right heel. Well, it's both, but the right one is always the worse one. We went pumkin picking saturday and then slept over my cousin's with all the kids. While they ran around and screamed, the adults kind of hung out in the kitchen b-s-ing. We stood, sat, etc. Finally, my foot was sore so I hopped up onto the counter for about 20 minutes. When I jumped down, the pain that shot through my right heel was so unbearable that I fell. I had to limp that whole night, I slept with my foot elevated for awhile and when I woke up yesterday, it was still sore (actually, it still is now, but not as bad). It takes only an hour or so to become that bad when I'm standing or walking, yet it takes at least 24 hours, maybe more, to go back to "normal"....and normal is never a full recovery either.

I'm actually probably the most conservative "Democrat" on the planet. I usually vote Republican! I'm just so sick of both parties and I want to send a message that's loud and clear that will move these incompetent dinosaurs on both sides... and the best way to shove their butts is to vote them out of office. I am a registered Democrat because I had to choose when I registered in Nevada years ago, and I thought... in the end, I can vote for a Democrat or a Republican but if I'm a Democrat, I can help Trojan Horse influence who gets to the election!! I'm extremely conservative regarding the Military, immigration/illegal migration, taxes, etc. When it comes to America, my attitude is, ***** everyone else. This is my country and I resent the antics, hypocrisy and pettiness of the Europeans, the smarmy backstabbing of the Russians, the two-faced double-dealing of the Chinese, etc. and I'm for doing what's good for America. I'm no United Nations fan. I'm pretty liberal when it comes to the issue of a national health insurance of some kind. I know private insurance works great. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield and they've paid probably $50-80,000 for me over the years with no problems. But, that costs me $316/Month to maintain and I'm fortunate I've been able to pay it. Many people can't, many people with children and spouses are out of luck as to cover a family is just too expensive. To maintain COBRA benefits after a job change (an up to 18 month extension of the benefits one had at one's job) is ultra expensive and most people can't afford the payments and are forced to go uninsured. And unlike illegal migrants who flood Texas and California hospitals and receive free medical and abuse our system, Americans will get pursued by bill collection agencies and sued to dissolve their assets, if any, to pay medical bills. I know national healthcare doesn't work well. Canada is experiencing horrible quality in healthcare and skyrocketing costs and even though every Canadian is legally able to partake of it, they have to wait forever for services, sometimes dying in the waiting. Britain is no better. There must be a middle ground, even if it's a mixture of private insurance which provides the quality and some form of government assistance regarding premiums...maybe there's an acceptable median somewhere. I'm all for capitalism, but when I see a large company that is so influential like WalMart keep its workers (over a million of them) on overtime without pay, wage caps, and limited health-care benefits, I have to reevaluate my negative feelings about unions. I don't like unions and I think they eventually ruin a business or industry (auto industry for ex.), but, I also worry about these super powerful companies riding roughshod over workers with no checks and balances. The existing employment laws have been ignored. A union would force them to behave. Too bad we can't institute unions for (for example) a five year period to get the abuses curbed, then have it automatically expire legally unless voted in again, that way it doesn't grow into an unwieldy carbuncle as unions historically have done. So, I'm a trojan horse voter in the Democratic party. I will hang myself before I ever vote for Hillary Clinton and I see my presence in that party as a way of thwarting people like her So, that's my view on stuff... But when it comes to God and praying, we're all equal before Him and I'm sure He's looking out for you too

Thank you sooooooooo much it's really nice to know I am being prayed for.

I have gerd(gastro esophageal reflux disease) . I'm pretty sure I have irritable bowel syndrome, which is embarrassing to have. I also have anxiety ,(although I might be wrong, considering hyperthyroidism has the exact same symptoms.)
