achilles heel pain

I recently noticed a burning electric pain shooting from my right heel, and it does this when I dorsi flex my foot. could this be a type of carpal tunnel of the foot? it feels like an impinched nerve, maybe? please help, should I see a
neurologists? I don't have much faith in pediatrist...thanks for help...

Re: achilles heel pain

Hi, I'd see a ortho if anyone you probably need an MRI just to see what is going on. I had achilles tendon reconstruction several yrs ago and it was done by an ortho. CJ

Re: achilles heel pain

Definitely go get checked out by a board certified foot/ankle ortho surgeon, not a general ortho. Let us know what tht doctor says!
