I have been suffering with PF for almost year which means I haven't been able to run for a year either! After endless physio, acupuncture, Shockwave Therapy, insoles and stretching I went for MRI scan only for that to come back clear. My consultant is pretty sure I must have a small PF Tear somewhere though which is causing me pain in the same area. Looks like my next route will be the steroid injection. Just wondered if anyone has had this? Does it work and how painful is it? Being a teacher I rely on being on my feet all day so don't know if this is a risky option! I am dying to get back to running and at the moment I can't see a light at the end of the tunnel!
