Patient

Q: I have plantar fasciitis, now wearing custom made insoles and expensive support shoes. I haven't walked barefoot in months because I've been told I have fallen arches and over pronation of the foot. My pain in through out the entire day and now even wakes me in the middle of the night. My foot has started to swell by the end of each day. (could be from the compression sock I'm wearing) Is there something I'm not doing that I should be? This flare up has lasted almost 5 months. The constant pain and now the steepness nights from being woken with throbbing pain is getting really old. HELP
