HEEL PAIN

sometimes it feels like my heel will fall off. Other times I use support and I get by ok....cannot wear fancy shoes anymore.

What kinds of things help it, or what have you tried? If you haven't read the heel pain book on this site, it has some helpful suggestions. I've found that very gentle stretching, lots of rest, and never going barefoot has helped a lot. Icing helps too, and anti-inflammatories, if I overdo.

Have you seen a doctor for a proper diagnosis?
