Heal/Arch Tension

Posted by Snowboarding Goat on 4/13/05 at 12:03 (173129)

During the snowboarding season I started to have 'tightness' in my heel/arch. During boarding, running, softball, or any activity where I am moving the pain isn't there. After I stop or have been sitting for a while I end up with a huge limp and sharp pain in my left foot. The pain seems to be coming from my heel/arch. After about two-three minutes of walking the 'tightness' goes away and I don't even think about it. In the mornings I've almost fallen over because the pain is so severe. Do you have any thoughts as to what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance for any information.
