is this a heel spur?

Posted by Crystal C on 10/18/04 at 13:44 (161729)

i have this knot like thing on my heel.. it hurts to put any weight on it at all... it says that people under 25 usually dont get heel spurs.. but im only 16 and i can hardly walk on my foot. it hurts the worst in the mornings.. it feels like my heel is throbing. could this be a heel spur? or is it something else?

Hi Crystal,
This sounds like your achilles tendon. Read the heel book it can help with any tendon problem.
