    I have tried my true blue favorite Nikes, I've tried Crocs, ASICS Gel Tennis shoes, and now I just ordered Birkenstocks and Nurse Mates. I'd rather dump a fortune into every bloody shoe on the market than to put soy milk in my mouth. (yuck)

    I feel for you. I spent months with terrible heel pain, which I "self diagnosed" as plantar fasciitis. Though relatives who had experienced similar pain swore by the orthotics they got from podiatrists, I scorned that approach, was stubborn and never talked to my doc about it.

    What did help: (1) lots and lots of ibuprofen, (2) ice, and (3) stretching my calves every day.

    Have now been pain free for a few months, and I'm not gonna even ask why. Just be thankful! Maybe it was really an inflamed bursa?
