: Hi,I'M 37 YR OLD FEMALE I HAVE HEEL SPURS TOO. I HAVE BEEN THOUGH PT,SHOTS,CORTISONE WHICH HURTS LIKE HELL. THE DOC PUTS THE NEEDLE RIGHT IN THE HEEL. ON TUESDAY HE SHOT ME WITH MAZCAIN A LOCAL NUMER AND THAT HURT ALSO NOT TO MENTION I WAS ALLERGIC TO IT. I HAVE BEEN TO SEVERAL FOOT DOCS THEY ALL AVOID SURGERY, I WILL NOT CHANGE MY JOB OR GO OUT ON DISABILITY.THE LAST DR SAID I HAVE THE LARGEST SPURS HE HAS EVER SEEN. I HAVE THEM IN BOTH FEET BUT THE WORSE IS IN THE LEFT ONE.CAN ANYONE HELP US OUT WITH THIS STUPID PROBLEM.
SINCERELY HURTING IN WOODBRIDGE,VA

: I am 24 and have heel spurs too. My right foot hurts worse than the left, but they both hurt. I waitress...so I think that is how I got them. I feel the pain mostly in the morning. It is hard to get out of bed, when I step down onto the floor and start to walk...I want to cry. My orthopedic (whom I was seeing for a car accident) is the one that told me I had heel spurs. This was about a year ago. He told me some exercises I could do or that I could have surgery. He told me that the surgery is risky. Well, that was enough to make me realize that I didnt want it, and I would do the exercises and LIVE with the pain...which I do...every day. I know the line of work I am in doesnt help either, and school is taking forever. lol. Does anyone have any suggestions or maybe can share an expierence of surgery with me? Cortizone...I heard that hurts a lot. What is the reason for them...do they make the heel spurs go away?
: Thanks for taking the time to read my letter
: Kayleigh in Florida =)
