New heel spur surferer----HELP Just Curious

Posted by mariann on 2/07/00 at 00:00 (015556)

Like some of you others the heel pain came on me also just one day--and today I can hardly get out of bed because of the pain--even when I am sleeping. but there are some days that I have no pain whatsoever. Are there any over the counter products that can help this--I =have no health insurance and really don't want to resort to a doctor if there are other things that can be done. And have heard that the shots are very painful and may not help and may even make them worse.
I stand alot during the day--would different shoes help?????????? I am at my wits end--I am 51 and very active and hate the pain.

Can someone please give me some ideas.

Thank you
