Used all treatments

Posted by Stephanie on 2/17/99 at 00:00 (004884)

Since August I've had terrible pain in my left heel. Always have worn orthotics, prior to the pain. In October, received an injection in the heel. I'm a runner, but have not run since September. Tried 3 more pair of orthotics, all made my heel hurt. Started Physical Therapy, ultrasound, and taping. I golf and hurt with the tape on. I wear Birkenstocks and have Birkenstock inserts, I hurt with the inserts also. Should I get a MRI for possible stress fracture? I'm really frustrated of hurting all of the time.

Who fitted you with the orthotics? Have you told him/her about your pain? If it were me, I would see an orthopedic doctor. Hope you get some relief.
