Posted by JamieW on 6/07/05 at 16:28 (176252)

I think I have Plantar fasciitis or Heel spurs but I'm only 20. Is there somthingelse that may be more likly to be causeing simaler symptoms? Im not athletic or overweight. Could somthing more serious be causing my heel spurs?

It is posbile for a 20 year old to get pF but you are a bit young. I would get get the following blood tests: ASO, CRP, FANA, RA Latex, sed rate (just write them down and tell your doc that your wouold like them ordered)
