Location of new pain - tendon or Fascia?

Posted by Andrue on 10/09/02 at 05:17 (097120)

My recent injury has me intrigued. I can walk barefoot without a problem -the pain comes when something presses on the bottom of my foot. What is it that stands proud of the bottom of my foot when I pull my big toe up? It's that this is sensitive to pressure (currently v. painful on my right) on both my feet (more so near the heal). Is this the inner band of the Plantar fascia or the tendon to pull the toe down?

For what it's worth when standing on shoes I get pain near the heal and a pulling sensation all along whatever-it-is.
