    That sucks. I dealt with it before. I just remember it being horrible in the mornings. Sometimes it would come back during my softball season(s), especially the fall season. I thought it was my cleats at first, so I bought new ones. They helped at first, but not completely.
    I haven't suffered from that in a couple years now...knock on wood. I'd stretch it, take pain pills as needed. Someone suggested I roll a frozen 16 oz water bottle on the floor under my foot. That only helped a little, though.
    I just dealt with it. It eventually went away. I'm sure it'll come back again at some point.

I suppose the key is just constant stretching. It does help, just doesn't keep it away. I'd like to get up once in the night and not have my heel sore when I get up and walk. Thanks!
    My entire routine has been screwed up since i was called back to work, last week.

    Now, i come home & have exercises to do, and i'm fucking beat.
    And i have to do my breathing exercises in the evening now, due to these early days,
    and my holding power is greatly diminished.

    You're supposed to do it first thing when you wake on an empty stomach.
    But i don't have time.

    I really miss being locked down, to be honest.

    Wow, sounds awful. Hope you get relief.
    Stretching does help. Problem is, both driving and sleeping make it worse. I’ve bought ankle sleeves and insoles off amazon. They’ve helped, a bit. But nothing major. Just moving around and stretching are the only things that really make any difference.

    Anyway, good luck!

    That sounds awful.

    I wonder why it acts up when you rest?

    My nerve thing did, i believe, due to my position lying down.

    Hopefully, i don't get this foot issue, too.
    My whole working life, i've been on my feet with bad floors.

    I don't think sleeping makes it worse. It's just that during the day the fascia stretches out because of the pressure of standing, then at night..no pressure so it shortens back up. There are simple devices that keep the foot flexed as you sleep that are supposed to help but I found them annoying. Then there are bands that you can put around your instep that does the same. Do your stretching exercises before you get out of bed and that will help

    Exactly, that sucker tightens up again as you sleep. Sleeping, your feet are usually pointed so they're very relaxed, not stretching. Then when you get up, Bam! That sucker is super tender.

    Currently taking a music production course, and we are discussing the flanger effect, and we went into detail about John Lennon's involvement in it.

    I can't copy out of the textbook, but I did find a little about it on Wikipedia, and thought I would share here.

    Despite subsequent claims over who originated flanging, Les Paul discovered the effect in the late 1940s and 1950s; however, he did most of his early phasing experiments with acetate disks on variable-speed record players. His 1955 single "Nuevo Laredo" features phase shifting,[1] as does the 1953 single "Mammy's Boogie."

    American music industry veterans David S. Gold and Stan Ross, founders of Gold Star Studios in Hollywood, claim they made the first commercial recording—the single "The Big Hurt" by Toni Fisher—at Gold Star in late 1959 and a hit in the United States in early 1960, rising to #3 on Billboard magazine's singles chart. Flanging is also heard in the opening of the Ventures' 1962 cover of the Tornados' "Telstar", in a rocket launch sound effect.

    Further development of the classic effect is attributed to Ken Townsend, an engineer at EMI's Abbey Road Studio, who devised the process in the spring of 1966. Tired of laboriously re-recording dual vocal tracks, John Lennon asked Townsend if there was some way for the Beatles to get the sound of double-tracked vocals without doing the work. Townsend devised artificial double tracking or ADT. According to historian Mark Lewisohn, it was Lennon who first called the technique "flanging". Lennon asked George Martin to explain how ADT worked, and Martin answered with the nonsense explanation "Now listen, it's very simple. We take the original image and we split it through a double vibrocated sploshing flange with double negative feedback".[3] Lennon thought Martin was joking. Martin replied, "Well, let's flange it again and see". From that point, when Lennon wanted ADT he would ask for his voice to be flanged, or call out for "Ken's flanger". According to Lewisohn, the Beatles' influence meant the term "flanging" is still in use today, more than 50 years later. The first Beatles track to feature flanging was "Tomorrow Never Knows" from Revolver, which was recorded on April 6, 1966.

    Recently watched a documentary about WWII, and found out that Hugo Boss himself designed the Nazi SS uniform.
