Will I make it worse?

Posted by McKee on 7/11/03 at 23:33 (124187)

I have taken a week off running after realizing that I have something not right about my heel. I have been stretching and icing and taking advil and swimming, but I want to RUN! Will it make it worse if I do? Can I resume running and just ice after? My heel still hurts just a bit in the morning when I get up and when I think about it during the day. But, it isn't an intense pain. What if I run 6 miles just to see how it feels? Will I set myself back and make the injury worse or just slow the healing?

Bad Idea . Find out why you have the pain first.
