foot pain

I HAVE A VERY BAD PAIN THAT STARTS ON THE OUTSIDE OF EACH FOOT. I WENT TO A PODIATRIST AND HAD THERAPY PLUS CORTISONE SHOTS ON THE INSIDE OF THE HEEL TWICE. HE TOOK XRAYS AND FOUND A SMALL HEEL SPUR ON EACH HEEL. THIS IS SOMETHING I WAS TREATED FOR 7 YRS AGO. HE ALSO TOOK IMPRESSIONS OF MY FEET AND HAD (EXPENSIVE) ORTHOTICS MADE. NONE OF THIS HAS HELPED ME. THE PAIN STARTS AGAIN ON THE OUTSIDE MIDDLE OF EACH FOOT AND THEN STARTS MY HEEL TO HURTING AGAIN.PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I CAN DO. THIS IS GETTING VERY EXPENSIVE AND I AM NOT GETTING ANY BETTER. I AM AN ACTIVE 57 YR OLD THAT CANNOT WALK VERY FAR ANYMORE.

stretch your calf daily.  when you do so, hold the stretch for 15 seconds and repeat 15 times.  always wear supportive athletic shoes with your orthotics and avoid standing barefoot until the pain disappears.  if your pain continues, an endoscopic plantar fasciotomy can help release the tension on the fascia.  
ice and ibuprofen at 800 mg  can help as well (as long as you aren't taking other anti-inflammatories and not allergic to it)
