pain on outer edge of heal

Posted by Debbie G on 2/12/02 at 02:31 (073397)

I have shooting pain when I turn my foot is different directions. The pain feels like a burning sensation and is on the outer edge of the bottom of my heel. I have pain mostly when I am sitting; not when I am walking or putting weight on my foot.

For information purposes, the pain is in my left foot, on the bottom outside of my heel, directly below my ankle bone.

Be patient, Debbie: the doctors are busy professionals. They give lots of their time to the board, but they can't answer every question immediately. I'm sure you'll get a response within a couple of days; if not, post again, perhaps with a few more precise details about your symptoms. Meanwhile, read the excellent heel pain book for information.
