trying to find out if i have a bone spur

Posted by Aimee Hausinger on 5/01/03 at 16:16 (117573)

My question is how do i know if what i have is a bone spur? I have severe pain on the sid of my right heel. I do alot of walking with my job, so I'm wondering if thats caused it. Is an xray really the only way to tell if indeed a bone spur is whats causing my pain??

Thank you
Aimee

An X-ray is the one way to see the heel bone. An ultrasound is another way
