Re: A new read responds with questions...

I just discovered this section today. I too have problems when I first wake up in the morning with walking and then if I sit too long, when I get up my foot hurts. The problem is in my right heel. I have
had two cortisone shots from my podiatrist. He told me not to wear flat shoes and to wear at least one inch heels. When I wear heels, my heel does not hurt as much.

What I don't understand is what causes heel spurs? I have only had this problem since June and just started going to the podiatrist in November. I kept hoping the pain would go away... 19:32:42
