Heel Pain (or near heel)

Posted by Scott G. on 11/11/02 at 18:15 (099832)

About 2-3 months ago I noticed a sharp pain near my left heel (on the inside portion of the foot). It seems to be there constantly. For about a year now I have been playing basketball on a regular basis on M-W-F. When I play there is no pain. Starting about a 30 minutes after playing the pain is sometimes unbearable. I don't even have to be on my feet, the pain is just constant and sharp. The pain usually lasts until the morning of Monday, Wendesday, or Friday (when I play ball again). Does it sound like I have Plantar Fasciitis or something more serious? I might also note that I don't play in basketball shoes. Which I know might not help the situation. Thanks. Scott
