: i have what appears to be a small bump in the heel of my left foot. it hurt to walk on this foot. I have never had any problems with this in the past, but now its seems to be getting harder to stay on my feet. any help will be greatfully appriciated.
I had the same thing. I went to a foot doctor. He x-rayed it and found a small bone chip from the back of my heel. It had broke off somehow I really don't know how or remember injuring it. To make matters worse the tendon had grown around it. It was quite inflamed. The doctor gave me a shot of some steriod in the tendon. No it didn't hurt and made it feel immediatly better. The other option is surgery to remove the bone chip. I havn't decided weither or not to get the surgery. I am not without pain but it is much better. Good luck
