Visible swelling near heel

Posted by Kristen S. on 3/08/99 at 00:00 (005342)

This is a first for me; my feet have been bothering me more lately because I've been trying to get some exercise and apparently overdid it. (A 2 hour hike on a flat, paved surface). I don't have the acute, stabbing pain in the heel that I had when I first got the PF, more of a dull, deeper ache and some tingling. Part of my right foot looks swollen and a little bruised; it's just in front of the heel and to the inside of the foot, a little below the ankle bone. Icing seems to help. Why the swelling, when I didn't even have visible swelling at the onset of the PF over a year ago?

Sounds like it might be a stress fracture? I would definitely have it checked and ruled out. Best. BarbJ
