I went to another doctor today - they took x-rays that showed nothing, and she said it IS my plantar fascia. She seemed to think that it is extremely inflamed right at the insertion. I'm supposed to take 1800 milligrams of ibuprofen a day and not run for two weeks and then see how it feels. I hope that it's that easy. Although, honestly if it is, I'm going to be a bit pissed that that's all I needed to do and I could've done that FOUR WEEKS AGO. It's not much different than what I've been doing anyways, minus all the ibuprofen. I've taken a bit, but not that much. It seems like a lot to me, but I guess the doc knows what they are doing. How frustrating. I feel like I'm being a wimp, but then when I walk for too long, it hurts. Then I realize I'm not, but it's an endless cycle of berating myself for being so soft, to convincing myself I'm not crazy. If it still hurts in 2 weeks, we move to def con 3.
