If you have the disease and would like to do an interview then please contact me, the aim is to give as much information to patients before they make their decisions, though of course you should always listen to your doctor. If you want to to be added you don't have to have had surgery or even any treatments just so long as you are willing to give honest answers to some questions it might help someone somewhere.

Note that these are interviews and that the opinions shown are of the interviewee not me, also that this is just one persons experience and everyone reacts differently to treatment but hopefully you find the information above useful.

  1. I am sure that there is some regional preferences for this disease. I am an orthopedic surgeon. everything started when I moved to Dubai UAE for my practice. in two weeks after my move I started severe pain and tenderness in my soles that made problem in walking which was really painful. inspite of the fact that plantar fasciitis usually improves with time and resolves in 1-2 years, my problem continued and even after moving to Canada last year, I still have it with less extent. 6 months ago I noticed the same features in my right palm in flexor tendons of my little and ring finger which looks like de puytren contracture. When practicing in Dubai I had lots of patients with plantar fasciitis and it was much more common than other regions of my practice.
