Pain in side of heel

Posted by DianneR on 8/19/04 at 12:55 (158420)

Hi
I have pain on the outside of my right heel, not on the bottom , under my ankle. If I have to be on my feet for long periods, the pain begins to shoot up the right side of my calf. Other than the place of pain, my symptoms are similar to heel spur syndrome. I have visited the Doctor and he wrapped my arch with an ace bandage with a pad, and suggested the heat/cold treatment. I've been wearing this wrap for 3 weeks, and have noticed no improvement.
Is it possible something else is going on here?
Thank You
Dianne

Hi

It is possible. This could be the ligaments in the ankle. Maybe the peroneal tendon. An ankle support and or brace maybe needed
