The podiatrist will watch you walk. Test your nerves, muscles,joints and range of motion of your entire foot and lower extremity. I would tape my foot while waiting for your appointment

Nabilia,

I have pain in the back of my heel and I just assume it's part of the PF. I never asked my Pod but I do know it's worse some days than others.

Have you seen a Podiatrist? He can give you a definitive diagnosis.

Kathy I have been diagnosed with PF yes about 3 yrs ago, still suffering.
Also have achilles tendonitus and patella femeral syndrome I just assume that the pain is to do with the PF also anyway I am seeing a consultant Ortho tomorrow , I hope I get some answers
