heel pain

Posted by caryn on 8/20/04 at 19:07 (158487)

I am a 40 year old runner. I do have some pronation on my injured foot. This week I suddenly got severe pain on the very back edge of my heel (further back than where the pain is shown for typical planters fac.). It feels similar to planters fac. but is at the very back edge. What could this be? I tried running today and I've got alot of pain. Do you have any idea what type of injury this could be? Thankyou.

Hi

This could be your the achilles tendonitis. stress fracture, bursitis. If you are in pain time to stop running, see a doctor. You don't want a chronic problem with this
