I need help - suggestions please!

Ok fellow bloggers, and whoever else might be reading this.
I don't know what to do. My plantar fasciitis is seriously debilitating now. I am limping all the time, I can put almost no pressure on the heal at all.
Yes, I am calling my podiatrist today.
I just don't know what to do about workouts. I JUST started Turbofire, and I am SOOOOO excited about it, but the workouts are high impact on the feet, and I am starting to think I just can't do it. Yesterdays awesome workout turned into Hell for my heel.
So, if worst comes to ABSOLUTE worst - I have to stop doing cardio for a while.
What the hell am I going to do??
I can lift, but can I do that everyday? Should I? Maybe go to the gym and do the machines? I just don't know where to go with this.
I's so frustrating that I am working so hard to do something good for my body and my health, and it causes pain in other parts (heel and wrist)
I am really at my wits end. Has anyone out there dealt with this? Any happy outcomes, please??

  1. There are foot exercises you can do to relieve the pain from plantar fasciitis. I used to suffer terribly from that and it was actually my personal trainer at the gym that taught me some exercises to help stretch the tendon and foot muscles. Once I started doing that, the pain went away. I get it rarely now because I try and do the foot exercises at least once a week while I'm sitting watching TV.

    If your issue has to do with the achilles tendon and not heel spurs, the exercises should help.
