Do you suffer from heel pain? Is it Plantar Fasciitis? What have you tried that helped? What have you tried that didn't help?

There's bad pain when you step on your foot first thing in the morning.  I wore a night splint that kept my heel stretched.  Also did exercises and wore, and still do, orthotics in my shoes.  Got a couple of cortisone shots that numbed the pain but didn't really help heal the problem.

try taking a week off exercise. it's better to rest and recover than to worsen the issue.
