Hi, Christine. Today the podiatrist suggested my problem with plantar fascitis may be related to rheumatoid arthritis. I only slightly considered that when, exasperated, I searched on the web for "foot pain" and found something some time ago. I've had 6 cortizone shots, physical therapy, night splints and shoe inserts, but to no avail...Accupuncture has been on my list of "to try" so now that it may be related to RA, I may be ready to go that route. Sorry to hear it hasn't worked for you and this posting may not be much help, but I commiserate. Have you seen heelspurs.com? I think they mention accupuncture a lot there. Good luck!
