Unknown problem

Posted by Edwina D on 6/03/04 at 07:32 (151862)

I have been experiencing a sharp pain on the outer heel area of my left foot. The pain can be severe even if it is not touched. I have been treated for plantar fasciitis with exercise and physical therapy. I have not had a problem under my feet in the last 4 years. Now this is developing. It is sometimes swollen and discolored. The hardest thing to do is to remove my closed shoes at the end of the day. Is it possible for a spur to occur in the area slightly above the heel but on the outside of the foot(near the ankle).
Thanks for your time,
Edwina
