Does plantar fascitis get worse when you are up and walking?

Does plantar fascitis get worse when you are up and walking? I have terrible foot pain to the point that I have to use a walker, and even that is becoming more difficult. No one really knows why I am in so much pain. My entire foot hurts. It gets better with rest, worsens with walking, and really hurts when I initially get weight off them again.

I have had degenerative disc disorder for years. I have had

I have had degenerative disc disorder for years. I have had two microdisectomies in the past four years. I do not take anything at all for pain, though I am often in significant pain. Lately over the past two weeks I have developed a new symptom-pain in my side that radiates to my hip and ribs. It almost feels like a "stitch" or runners cramp. Any idea what this could be?JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: The new pain in my side has been present for about two weeks now. Activity makes it worse, but so does sitting for prolonged periods of time. Hot baths make it feel better, but only while I am in the water.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I am think, athletic and don't smoke. I eat healthy and exercise. The pain generally is much worse during menstruation and has remained since the end of my last period, which was about two weeks ago. I mean I am thin, not overweight. Sorry.

Since 3 years I have a constant back pain, on the right,

Hello,Since 3 years I have a constant back pain, on the right, upper side of my back which radiates to the side of my body (under my right arm and next to my right breast). Generally the center of the pain is in the upper back and it spreads to the whole area under my ribs (just in the back and on the side, no pain in the front). The pain is there all the time and it grts stronger when I breathe in. In the scale from 1-10 I would say it is 6. The pain is dull and it feels like as if there was some pressure on my ribs, like there was something inside, under my ribs in the back. I don't feel any bump or I don't notice any change outside.I have done MRI of my spine and the doctors found out that there are two discs misplaced but they said this should not cause a pain. The doctors said I have a muscle problem and sent me to the physiotherapy. This and the excercises did not help. I did not get further help from the doctors on my pain and therefore I did privatelt MRI of my abdomen - there was nothing unusual identified. The pain does not let me function normally. My feeling is that the pain does not come from the spine or muscles but I cannot identify where is it coming from. What else can I do to find out?
