bottom of heel internal tissue movement; minor pain

Posted by Greg R on 11/30/99 at 00:00 (013230)

About six weeks ago I suffered an impact injury on the bottom of my rt heel. I am able to move very slightly by hand a loose area of tissue under the thick skin between the surface and the heel bone. It could best be described as feeling like a flat bubble or hemotoid under the skin, perhaps the size of a dime. On occasion the pain is only stopped by my attempting to push the 'bubble' toward the back of the foot. The pain is rare and for the most part quite insignificant and there is no swelling or discoloration. Does this sound like the standard plantar fasciitis, or something else? Treatment options?
