That's a fact, plus I think one of the problems is I do treatment until just a few months and it no longer hurts.. that turns to a year or two, and then back to square one... when the pain just came back I had just started to wear a new pair boots...

Vitamin D Cured Me

I've done just about everything. Podiatrist - therapy, orthotics, stretching, shots every 6 months - for 5 years.

Vitamin D cured me. High quality Vitamin D, 2000 IU per day for 2 weeks. My pain went away after about 8 or 10 days.

Then I reduced it to 1000 IU per day. I've been cured for about 2 years.

What got you to try that? That's interesting, would have never thought about that.

Did you have your Vitamin D tested before you started to try it?

who prompted me to try this???

I got the idea from my wife. She read an article, told me about it, and it seemed worth a try.

I didn't have it tested before I tried it. I went to a local compounding pharmacy, which carries a lot of high quality vitamins, etc. and just went with what they had in stock.

I use Ortho Molecular Products brand
Vitamin D, 5000 IU

(5,000 IU is a correction from my earlier post)

I took two (10,000 IU) for about 2 weeks, then reduced to one per day (5,000 IU) as my maintenance dosage.

^That's cool that worked out for you. Something I've never heard of and would've never thought of. Will hopefully remember that if I know someone who gets it.
