I have some major improvements to record today!
When I got up this morning to go to the bathroom, and then head back to bed, I was so groggy, I didn't realize until I got back to bed that I had walked without shoes! Without any pain. Anyone that has had experience with Plantar Fasciitis will know that the morning pain is the worst. I have also been able to take the dogs on their nightly walk. Both for the first time in two years. (Well except for the time I was pain free for three months after a cortisone shot, the second cortisone shot didn't work, and gave me pain in other areas of the foot - which are now getting better too.)
Also I can get up from a chair without help! Without using my hands and without the pain in my leg muscles and knees.
While I still have pretty severe hip pain, the above two improvements show that this elimination diet is having an effect.
