When I finally saw a doctor, he said that the heel pads were exactly the wrong thing, even though it looked right. He said that a good arch support was needed to encourage the stretch, and that the heel pad did the opposite.

He also gave me a bunch of stretching exercises. They helped a lot, but don't overdo them or they make it worse.

Yeah, really off topic, but...
Have any of you experienced this problem? If so, what did you find was the best treatment? Did you purchase any type of hardware - insole - healpad? There's so much on the internet that is "guaranteed" that I have my doubts. Can't afford to waste money. I don't want to see a doctor about it if I don't have to.

I've been dealing with this for over a year now and only recently discovered what it was. Some mornings I can barely walk until I get going for awhile. Or if I watch TV for a bit then try to get up to go to the kitchen, ow, ow, ow. Once I'm moving along I'm pretty much ok though.

I found some exercises I'll try, but wondered if anything purchasable would speed the healing.

Thanks for anything you can offer.
