Heel/Foot lump & Pain.

Hi,

Just wanted to know if anyone here recognises these symptoms.

Pain & lump at back of left foot, about midway up heel bone.
The lump is small, with slight movement and quite hard, it hurts when a shoe, or trainer push against it whilst walking on it. It is a shocking stabbing pain, almost feels like it's been cut.
I can't walk through it and have to take the weight off the foot immediatly.

It doesn't hurt without shoes/trainers on at all. So I'm guessing the small lump is pushing against something! Have you heard of this and any idea what it may be?
I can't always find the lump. Some days it doesn't appear to be there. I may still get the pain though whilst walking.

I wouldn't say it's shoe specific, as I can be wearing the same shoes for months with no problems and then suddenly I will get the pain.

Thanks for reading!!
Rsbird.

Re: Heel/Foot lump & Pain.

rsbird,
You aren't talking about your Achilles tendon are you? Is there a lump that hurt with pressure from the back of your shoes pushing on the back of your heel?

Re: Heel/Foot lump & Pain.

Hi!
I don't believe it is as high up as my achilles tendon, it's a little below and slightly to the left!
I can't push is hard enough with my hand to reproduce the pain, it is only when my weight is on it with a shoe pushing against it.

It's on the bone area, but the lump is moveable and hard, like a cist?? Maybe?

Is that possible?

Thanks!
Rsbird.

Re: Heel/Foot lump & Pain.

Maybe you should go get it checked out by the doctor because cysts can grow big and cause alot of pain. It's easier to get rid of small ones.
