Catherine, I'm not a doctor, but I heard the anxiety in your voice and looked up Severs Disease on Google. The first site that came up gives a thorough description of the condition, and a number of treatment options, so until one of the doctors responds to your post, here's a link to be getting on with your reading:
Two others that look fairly useful to me is http://www.zfootdoc.com/newpage37.htm and http://www.drfoot.co.uk/Osteosevers.htm
