Question Burning heels???

hi,
well my bf is complaining about his heels burning, well actually i think he pointed to the back of the foot, between his heel and ankle. he says it comes and goes; when hes siting, standing, laying down, whenever. he doesnt know y its happening, and starting to worry. he says it been like this for 2 weeks or so. i asked him, if he got hurt, thinking its affecting his feet, but he said no. does anyone have an idea to what this could be?

Re: Burning heels???

uhoh.. tell him to see an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis.. a lot of times arthritis changes in the ankle and heel can feel like burning when it starts.. i had a similar situation.. healthy for years (now 33) then my joint between heel and ankle started buring,which lead to pain.. turned out to be a latent genetic abnormality requiring surgery.. an MRI or CT scan can diagnose the problem.

Re: Burning heels???

until it casuses sever enough pain you dont have to do anythihg,but usually with in a year or two the oain becomes severe ans it is hard to wqalk, so the patient ends up getting a subtalar fusion,, which fuses together two bones, and it lilimits your ability to play sports somewhat.. no more running basically.. The revcovery is HELL jus tto let you know.. 5 months stuck at home essentially... but wrth it tio walk pai nfree afterwards!!!!!
