carcameal spur

Posted by Janine S on 11/12/02 at 09:28 (099870)

I went to the doctor with foot and ankle pain thinking I sprained or broke my foot. I went to get xrays and the doctor in charge did not do an xray...he said I had tendinitis and put me in a sort of cast. Five days later I went to my doctor who again ordered xrays. I was xrayed and she said I have carcameal spur and need to see an orthopeid. What is a carcameal spur?

Thank you

I believe you are either talking about a heel spur The heel bone is also called the calcaneus
