RE: Any runners out there dealt with Iliotibial Band Syndrome? I need some help getting over ITBS.

Go see a podiatrist that specializes in athletes. Most likely they'll have you take a break for a few months and get fitted with custom orthotics. This may or may not help. There's a bit of an argument going on with respect to how the human foot responds to shoes in general. Anyway.

If the doc is good, they'll have you do a simulation (running on a treadmill) to watch your form for any glaring problems.

There are a few good books out there that deal with foot problems with respect to running specifically. Also, lots of good running forums on the net (Runners World). You may want to do some research on your own.

I had problems that were related to my foot to ground strike. This required me to change my running style (not easily done), but it ended up working for me.

Good luck.
