Working with chronic heel pain

Posted by Glen K on 3/29/04 at 01:09 (148031)

Hi Doctor, I've had a painful heel spur on my left foot for six months now.. When I press on the bone it hurts..it affects the whole bottom of my left heel--I tried a cortizone shot, anti-inflam, night splint--just started the gym--25 lbs overweight..I work in television seeting up arenas for sporting events which requires alot of labor and walking--after 2 hours--its extremely painful where i limp home after the gig--its really bad and nothing works-evry job i get is 10 hours-whats next--im worried about the shaving of the bone surgery the doctor is thinking about as a last resort--i dont have benefits now though--thanks--gk
