| | Haglund's deformity/ Heel spurs??
This is going to be a complicated story so bear with me. About 2 and a half years ago I had surgery to remove heel spurs on both of my feet that I had my whole life due to Haglund's deformity. Basically, there was a bursa between my achilles tendon and skin, and it created a large bump that eventually bugged me (they didn't really hurt that bad, but they were annoying).
I have been problem-free for those 2 and a half years, and have skated 2 hockey seasons in harsh skates with no problems. I'm only 18 years old so I figured I wouldn't have the recurrence of the deformity.
However, I have noticed over the past 3 weeks or so that my left heel has been a bit tender in one spot temporarily when I skate. For the first minute or so when i tie my skates my left heel bothers me a bit in this one spot but it doesn't really hurt that bad, its just sort of annoying. Once I start skating, however, the annoying feeling goes away and I feel fine; My right foot has no problems at all.
I'm just wondering if I could have a recurrence of the deformity in my left foot... there is no odd coloring of the heel and it doesnt hurt when i touch it; when I wear normal shoes my foot feels fine as well.
Could this pain simply be caused by a bad pair of skates??? Please tell me this is the case! If so, what can I do to alleviate the annoyance?
