Heel Spur

Posted by Cathy D. on 10/13/03 at 07:12 (133813)

I had asked you last evening about whether you have heard of putting a cast on a person's leg for a heel spur. I have another question also.
I have had the cast on since this past Thursday and my heel in a few days starting having a burning sensation in it plus it hurts off and on periodically during the 24 hour period. Is this a normal feeling to have with a cast on. It feels like the cast is giving me a blister on my heel which I am sure is the spur.

in general, i wouldn't wear a cast, but as far as advice, i have to say see your doctor
