Ouch!

Posted by Truffle on 5/28/00 at 05:29 (020974)

A few days ago, I was out in the garden helping to build a screen, when I stepped off too quickly. I had a really weird 'snapping' sensation followed by a lot of pain - I dropped to the floor as it was extremely painful to put any weight on the foot. A few days later, this doesn't seem to have got any better - anyone got any idea what this could be? I've now got sharp pain in the base the of heel where there wasn't any before. Also, when I flex my foot right back, I can't see or feel a tight band along the base of my foot to my toes - what has happened? T.

see the doc immediately. you may have torn your fascia loose from the heel. not uncommon. my doctor had it happen to her.
