Ooh the pain!

Posted by Katie on 1/17/99 at 00:00 (003557)

I'm just at the tail end of my plantar fasciitis. It started in earnest last April. I started getting cortisone injections in June through October of 1998. I have a right heel spur, but I have throbbing pain in the ball of my left foot that radiates to my toes. I had been getting the cortisone injections in-between two of my toes on my left foot. I had to give up nursing career because of the foot pain. Tomorrow I'm going out to look for a job in nursing & hope to not end up hobbling home! I still get the throbbing pain in my left ball of my foot-when driving! My foot is completely at rest. What the heck is up with that?

Katie, have the cortisone injections helped at all with the pain in the ball of your foot, or was it a waste of time????

Hi Katie,
I wanted to know what a heel spur feels like.... where it is located... on the bottom of the foot or the back of the heel? When you touch it, does it hurt? I was told that maybe I have a heel spur or a calcium deposit.... Just don't know which or even if either....
Thanks,
Cara. (email removed)
