    10 years ago I was deployed with the army to Iraq, in the green zone working with a small team. I had plenty of time to jump on the tread mill to run an hour everyday or run with my team from our FOB to another next to us, around it and back, usually 8 to 10 miles. I was in great shape, down to 5 minute 1 miles. One day on after a patrol, where we dismounted and walked along rocky uneven terrain, I took off my boot and my right foot was in tremendous pain. I could not flex my foot in any way, best way to describe it is this L. No flexing up or down, just stiff and painful. I've been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, gone through steroid injections and shockwave treatment. Most of my pain comes from inside the arch and when rubbed about mid way it goes from soft to painful bumps. It's been 10 years with no army or VA podiatrist able to stop any pain. I've done everything minus surgery as they cant give me any answer and every person I go to gives me different diagnoses. I've had days, MRIs (foot and back) all show nothing. I've been told nerve, ligament damage everything but definitive answer. Also if I lay stretch my foot down that inside of my arch will cramp up fast and very painful

    Sorry, no idea. It sounds as though every investigation that could be done to get to the bottom of this has been done, so its really hard to add any information, especially online without seeing you and the investigations.

    All I can suggest is get to a pain management specialist to deal with it.

    The investigations could be repeated in the future to see if any changes in things like the MRI can be seen.
