Heel pain

Posted by Paul P on 4/29/04 at 19:47 (149806)

Scott! Great site. I couldn't understand why both my heel and ass hurt so much! Sciatica could be the diagnosis. I've been taking Ibuprofen for the pain, but then I get an upset stomach later in the day. I didn't think the two were connected, but now I'll keep an eye on that. Thank's again.

Anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen can be rough on your stomach and should betaken with food. I have seen a number of patients with sciatica have radiating pain which can run downward as low as the outside of their heels.
