P.F. & nerve pain

I have been treating plantar fasciitis for 5 months now.....some relief, but not quite there yet.

Two weeks ago I received a cortisone injection for the nerve pain (very searing & burning feeling ) in my inner arch area. It helped some, but still have tingling going on, especially in the heel. The arch area feels sensitive, and when I am in my shoes with orthotics, gel type, the area beneath the arch feels "fuller" than the other foot......kind of in an exaggerated way. I ice several times a day.

Can the fascia itself be so swollen that it is triggering the nerves to be reacting?

Thanks,
Melanie

Can nerve pain-irritation be part of the P.F. syndrome?

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
