Unilateral pedal edema in plantar facitis?

Posted by Chad on 2/22/05 at 14:35 (169641)

Over the last couple of months I have been experiencing intermitent sharp level 8 pain in my right heel it goes just as fast it comes, usually only lasting a few seconds.

In addition over the last month I have noticed I also have about 1+ pedal edema in my right foot only which never goes away regardless of activity level. Just curious if edema is associated with plantar facitis or I need to be concerned about a possible DVT etc.
