I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. I am having swollen feet despite taking anti-inflammatory medications. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I do not know what anti-inflammatory medicines you were taking, but you need to take the correct medicines and the main treatment of plantar fasciitis is stretching exercises.
When the pain reduces, you have to do calf stretching exercises to reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis.
I suggest you the following medicines to get it cured. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
You need to wear silicon heels to reduce the stress over it.
You need to go to a physiotherapist and do ultrasound physiotherapy for at least 10 sittings in two weeks to the affected area. Do calf stretching exercises twice daily for 15 minutes.
Exercise is the main thing. Also, put your feet in hot water when you get up in the morning from bed. This treatment will surely help you. Follow up with me after 10 days.
