arch pain

Posted by Amy M on 10/05/03 at 11:12 (132299)

About 1 1/2 months ago I started feeling pain in my foot along the arch area( I have high arches). I bought inserts and new shoes and continued running. The pain worsened, but it is in no way that bad. I have finally taken a week off from running but the pain continues. I have continued to walk around town and stand on my feet as a teach all day. Is this a heel spur and how long do I need to wait for it to heel.

This could be plantar fasciitis, posterior tibial tendonitis. You need more then just rest, and inserts if this hasn't improve. You may need a prescription strength nsaid.
