heel pain

Posted by lak on 7/14/05 at 11:44 (178402)

Hi,
I hope you can help me. I am female age 47. A few months ago I started feeling some pain in my heel. When I flex my toes back toward my body the pain is very severe. It feels like I am tearing a ligament or something. Is this something that will go away on its own? I have rolled that foot twice this summer and I think it is getting worse.
Thanks
Lisa

What you describe sounds like it may be plantar fasciitis. First, read Scott's Heel Pain Book which tells you just about everything there is to know about plantar fasciitis then please return with specific questions.
