heel pain & tightness

Posted by Ann k. on 5/01/01 at hrmin (046349)

i have had surgery for a heel spur after exhausting all other avenues- physcial therapy, steriod shots,boot etc. After my surgery I was still in physcial therapy and experienced more pain than before the surgery. I was told that now I have RSDS. Have been going to a pain specialist and have had 6 lumbar sympatheic blocks and am on 2400 gr of neurontin and have had some relief. Now I feel like I have a heel spur again. I have not had any x-rays or any tests and I don't understand why not. Am seeing another Othopedic specialits for a second opinion. Are there any specific questions I should be asking.
