heel pain

Posted by Erica S. on 7/15/02 at 20:08 (089724)

I hope someone can help me. I have pain in the bottom of my heel, which hurts when I fully weight bear on that foot. My knee on that same leg feels like there is a lot of pressure when I bend it, although it does not appear swollen. I have flat feet and a history of hip dysplasia, with occasional hip pain over the last couple of years. I am very active. What should I do besides RICE and get better shoes with arch supports? Do patients with heel spurs ever have knee pain? Does it sound like I have a heel spur or could it be something else?
