Is it common to have no pain when heel is off floor?Posted by GregP on 9/26/04 at 17:39 (160536)
I had a rapid onset of heel pain this week, in the area shown on the front part of the heel, slightly towards the medial side. I guess this is the classic location for PF symptoms.
But, I am having absolutely no pain walking around on the ball of my foot, which I gather is not normal for PF sufferers?
Is it possible or common for PF sufferers to get pain relief by not putting their heels on the floor while walking?

I am having noticable swelling of the heel area. My wife can look at my heels and tell the difference between them.

Go see a doc or a podiatrist given the swelling you have

Compensating for pain by adjusting gait can lead to a whole new set of problems. The heel does not hurt because there is no stretching of the fascia. That is the purpose of orthotics.
Do see a doc regarding swelling.
