heel pain

Posted by diane H on 2/21/04 at 19:59 (144981)

I have suffered heel pain for about 4years it occured after I fell and sprain my ankle. the pain is so severe. I can't sit down stand up walk let alone run. at night I can't sleep the pain is unbearable. the pain is in my heel and ankle of my right foot. i have been wearing inserts and nothing seems to help. I did receive a shot of cortiscone but that did absolutely nothing. I would like to know what else can I try. i was thinking about getting a night splint. how good are they.

I would first get an mri due to this starting with an injury. The heel pain may be a sign of some other type of joint surface, ligament and or tendon injury

Joe, I don't think a doctor here would want to answer that question because you haven't seen a doctor and you don't actually know what is wrong. Please make an appointment with a podiatrist to confirm your self-diagnosis and follow his/her advice; then ask questions here.

I am very active, I coach basketball and soccer. I also teach group fitness classes six days a week. Today my heel pain is so intense I can't walk. What can I do?
