My heel is doing much better. I'm taking just one of the 800mg ibuprofens a day, before I go to bed. It is just a bit achy normally, with occasional pain when I'm walking. I notice it more when I'm barefoot and I walk on a hard floor - like my kitchen linoleum or bathroom tile. The extra pads in my boots seem to help too. So I'm hoping this was temporary and it clears up completely with a little more time.
