The podiatrist confirmed that I  have Plantar Fasciitis.  X-Rays ruled out any stress fractures or bone spurs.  I have to avoid impact exercises and heavy lifting for 2-3 weeks.  I also need to increase the number of times I stretch everyday to 3-5 sessions per day and get on a 3 times per day 400mg Ibuprofen regimen.  He also taped up my foot which I must say is pretty uncomfortable but not painful.   

The doctor seems to think I will be pain free in a month.  That would be amazing considering this has been steadily getting worse for the past 9 months or so.  Hopefully my insurance will cover orthotics.  In any case, I have a follow up appointment next week.
