Can someone please help me? I am in so much pain. I went to my doctor because I had pain in both my ankles. It was swollen and very painful. She told me to take 3 advils 3 times a day. It helped alittle but then it got worst.

A few days later, I went to the ER. He confirmed it was tendonitis. He gave me a steroid (Prednisone). He told me to take 3 pills all at once. Each pill was 20mg. I took that the next morning. He also gave me pain pills.

I had tendonitis in my arm, wrist, hips and now my ankles. I've been putting ice packs on it and I use the foot massage with warm water.

When I had tendonitis in my wrist, I had it for 2 years. Finally I went to an orthopedic surgeon who gave me a cortizone shot for instant relief.

The ER doctor told me it can take 2 weeks to heal. How can it heal at all when I walk on my feet?

It's so painful that I walk on my hands and knees around the house.

Today, my ankles don't hurt as much ( I took a few days off of work and haven't walked much on my feet). Now my heals hurt when I walk on them. My girlfriend told me it sounds like I might have "plantar Fasciitis". She said she had it and it took a long time to heal.

Does anyone know anything about Plantar Fasciitis? How long does it take to heal? I can't afford to take a lot of time off a work. I read there's shoes or boots that will help heal it. Will wearing these shoes help stop the pain?

Any information will be appreciated.

Thank Youi

Bernice
