Bottom of the foot heal pain

Posted by Brenda C on 7/13/03 at 22:16 (124348)

I have sore bottom foot at the heal that hurts when I put pressure on it. It radiats along the side & some in the arch. If I stay off the foot for a short time, it's almost impossible to walk afterwards. I have tried arch supports but help just a little but doesn't elevate the problem. The left foot is the worst, but the right foot does have some of the same feeling. The left foot is the most painful & also includes the ankle some of the time making it hard to bend at the ankle. All in all, I can't walk too much at a time & if I do, when I go to bed, I can feel the sensation of aching & burning some.

Any ideas?
