Nerve in heel is killing me!!

Posted by Celia on 2/14/01 at 10:53 (038944)

The nerve that starts from the heel and runs along the outer end of the foot (my left foot) is irritable all the way to below the pinky toe. What can I do to alleviate that painj and discomfort? It happens each time I walk. I'm having to limp to avoid that pain while I walk. I don't know what might have caused it other than I went to my first physical therapy session yesterday and they had me use the BAPS board. I also attempted to use the rolling pin last night before icing my heels. I didn't feel this discomfort until last night after I applied ice on my heels before going to bed. Now this morning, I could barely walk!

Sounds like your sural nerve is irritated. Stay off the BAPS board for awhile. Dr. B.
