I would like to know if spurs are a hereditary thing. My mother was telling me that my grandfather had them, she has them, and that the great pain I am in now may be caused by them. Please let me know about this. Thank you.

Spurs are not hereditary. Please read the Heel Pain Book on this site to get a better understanding. One thing that you will see during the read is that the 'spur' itself not the cause of pain but rather a manifestation or result of chronic inflammation on the plantar fascia.
