OUCH! a pain in the foot!

OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!... I am going crazy over here! My foot is killing me! I have plantar fascitis and pre-band I would dope up on Ibuprofen.

What is a banded girl to do??? I am icing it and wearing my inserts... thinking that a visit to the foot doctor is in order. Maybe a cortisone shot would help?

The problem is... I refuse to stop working out. I am opting for low impact workouts for the most part... but I refuse to take a few weeks off just to get back to normal. I can't!! I need to work out! I need to keep moving!! sigh.

I am so frustrated right now... any ideas? Any non NSAIDs anti inflammation meds out there? (maybe a good question for the Dr?)

I have PF too - it sucks. I went to a podiatrist last year and got a cortisone shot, it did help, but I need to go back. They told me always to wear a heel and gave me a stretching exercise, which is basically flexing your foot forward and back.
