How can I lose weight without aggravating planter fasciitis?
Q: I am a 32 years old woman weighing 78 kg. I have hypothyroid and taking Eltroxin (100mcg) daily. I am also suffered from plantar fasciitis. How can I lose weight without aggravating planter fasciitis?
A:Your weight is more, which is one of the causes for heel pain; so wear good shoes while working. Put your feet in lukewarm water daily for 10 minutes. Then, put a cloth on floor and put your feet on it and try to grasp the cloth with your toes and feet several times. Do not have any injection as it is the last resort; Keep your thyroid function under control by consulting your physician regularly as this can increase your weight further. Cut down standing still; and wear good soft footwear; during severe pains please have bed rest for 3-4 days and do stretching exercises of feet before you get down the bed.
