plantar faciitis

I have had plantar's for several months. I was racing once a month and doing speed work twice a week. Back in June I noticed when I got up in the mornings it was hard to walk. After a few minutes it went away. I was planning to take a break after the Grand Prix series in November, but in Sept. the pain got much worse. It started hurting while I was running. The pain felt was sharp and continuous. I have been pool running for 2 months and sleeping in a night splint.
I tried to run the other day and could only run a little over a mile and then it started hurting again.
I have started taking anti-inflammatories that the orthopedic dr prescribed. What is the next step? I pool run in the deep end so there is no impact but I work very hard in the pool trying to maintain my fitness level. I have been doing some cycling but not much...HELP!!!!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
