    @fatherinpain
     I had plantar.
    Did several things wore better shoes- crocs or slippers as example maybe comfy or simple to slip on but not good long term
    I eventually found new balance trainers to be very supportive.
    I froze a 3/4 filled plastic water bottles (500ml/pint sized) and rolled my feet over them, gradually pushing down you can use a ball too.
    and when it was at it worse I made a night splint, not using the new kenisology tape but tubigrip. Google PF taping, just keeping foot in same position helped. Doing that for a few nights alleviated  foot pain. 
    I get the odd twinge now and again, and make sure I wear supportive footwear at some point during my day.
    hope this helps

    Ask for a review. What are the muscles like in the rest of your leg and calf? Could there be something else? How about seeing a chiropractor? I was on a waiting list with this after my first child then a chiropractor cured it by accident when treating something else. Could an overall body review help because pain begets pain.
    A laugh a day keeps the psychiatrist at bay.
