Heel Pain

Posted by Anji F on 6/06/05 at 07:45 (176179)

I have had on going pain in and around my heel. Some days good, some bad. I stand on my feet for a living. Woke up yesterday with no pain. Went for a walk, half way back it started hurting. Have had burning sensation in my heel ever since. What can I do to ease the pain?

Anji, this is hard to answer definitevly without you going to see a doctor, either through your General Practioner (some insurance companies require this) or going directly to a podiatrist. You could have plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, a torn achillies tendon or many other possible problems.

Get back to us and tell us how it goes, OK? Everyone is interested in not only your foot problem but also how you solved it.
