heel pain.

Posted by ken j. on 10/14/02 at 12:06 (097471)

Hello,

I have recentley started having pain in my left heel.
I am 34, in shape and spend no more time on my feet than i have in the past.
The pain is there if my heel is on the ground. Whether sitting or standing, if it's on the ground, there is pain.
I can rub the area and it feels good, but as soon as i put it down, it hurts.
I plan on visiting a dr., but would like to know your thoughts.

thank you

ken

Hello

This is tough to diagnosis but it sounds like plantar fasciitis. I would rest, use heel cups, take over the counter motrin if you aren't allergic to this medications. Your podiatrist will take an x-ray and evaluate your pain completely . Good luck,
