The pain started in 1995. First as an ache in my hips and upper legs. It would start after my shift at the hospital was about half over. I noticed it didn't get much better with Tylenol alone so I would take Tylenol and Ibuprofen. It would continue aching till long after I got home and in bed. By the morning it was gone. As time went on the ache worsened and would start 2 hours after the shift started, then 1 hours, then 30 minutes. The severity was worse and it was very difficult to even walk to the parking lot after my shift was over. I remember telling myself I could do it. To just take one more step, then another and another till I got to the car. Then I started having pain in the ball of my feet, it felt like I was stepping on a stone. I had trouble walking or standing very long so getting through a whole shift was very hard but I only worked 3 days a week so I managed. I found out this pain was Plantar Fasciitis. And it, coupled with the leg pain landed me mostly on the couch. And that was just the beginning.
