bruised feeling on bottom of heel
For the past month, I've had the feeling that the bottom of my right heel is bruised. I don't see any sign of a bruise though. I didn't have any special events that would have injured the area. It just started hurting.
It isn't extremely painful, but it is constantly sore. Some days more than others.
I've taken prescription anti-inflammatories and iced the area. I also have a special roller that is designed to roll your feet over to help relax the foot that I've tried (gently).
So far, it still feels the same.
For footwear, I typically wear Danskos, Birkenstocks or occassionally athletic shoes.
How long should I wait to see the doctor? Is it really worth seeing the doctor when the pain isn't severe?
