In Reply to: Re: Pain in heel posted by vicki on August 04, 2000 at 18:30:40:


: : For the last 3 weeks when I wake up in the morning and get out of bed, I can hardly stand on my right foot because of the pain in my right heel. After I walk for awhile, it feels ok, just alittle sore. When I sit down at work for any extended time, the same thing happens again. When I stand up, I can hardly walk on my right foot because of the pain in my heel. But then, after I walk alittle while, it goes away except for being alittle sore

: : Anyone have any ideas what is wrong with my foot. I am in a job where I am on my feet several hours per day, but I cant remember injuring myself in any way. Thanks for any information you can give.


I know this is a late response, but I just read this. I had this horrid pain in my right foot for a long time. The orthopedic surgeon said it was plantar fascitis, or a bone spur. I had surgery 9 years ago. He cut both sides of my foot to cut out the spur. I asked him to save it so I could see it. It was a little spur that grew onto my bone. I had been wearing dress shoes, and being a heavy woman, this was not wise. The shoes had no protection from my weight bearing down when I walked, and I was walking a lot at the time. I did not know I should have had an insert after the surgery, and the dr did not put me in one. As the result, I do have flat feet. My surgery scar on either side of my foot is sensitive to the touch. I would try ANYTHING but the surgery first. I did, but it did not work for me. A friend has had a heel spur for a couple of years now. She has used gel inserts, tennis shoes with a good arch support and has done the stretching, and it seems to be working for her. Good luck. It hurts a lot. I know!
