I was 18 years old when I was diagnosed with heel spurs. I am now 30 and it is becoming very painfull. I have tried the arch/ankle supports, 800mg Ibuprofen, and the only thing that seems to help is if I do not walk for a day or two. I obviously can not just do that whenever I want to. I am a single mother of 2 boys who has a full time job and can not afford to miss work whenever. Is surgery the only option left for me?
