Plantar fasciitis

Posted by Kathy P on 3/17/02 at 12:33 (076646)

I have a problem with calicum (spurs) deposits breaking off and exiting out the bottom of my foot. This has happened three or four times so far. It is very painful but when the deposit finally falls out the pain is gone. I have seen a doctor years ago that diagnosised me with heal spurs. He said the extreme case the spurs will break off and come out. What I don't remember is if there will be any damage to my foot. Do I need them removed?

Are you sure we are talking about heel spurs. Never heard of the spurs coming out of the foot. We could be talking about corns, pugges swear ducts or warts
