Ankylosing Spondyltits in the feet, and braces

I have been reading this board, you are super, but I fear there is nothing in your bag for me, LOL. I am seeking help finding any relief of the advanced tightness and swelling in my heels from AS......how tight can I wear a tendon brace. Ankle weights help, but cannot get them tight enough. As you know with AS, I have to move or fuse, but the pain and swelling make movement a near impossibility. and ideas? The pain in my heels is so great it radiates up into lower calf.....any help at all would be appriciated. I have seen a podiatrist, but I am his first AS patient, so he has 0 ideas from the beginning. Starting orthotics, but they do not help the tightness.
Any ideas?
