can back problems cause sharp HEEL Pain in foot

I have a sharp pain in my hip from time to time. Especially when i'm very active. I have had an ADR on my l4-l5 and have a bulge in my l5-s1. Could this be related and have any of you had heel pain associated with back problems.

Re: can back problems cause sharp HEEL Pain in foot

Hey, J -- I had a fusion at L5-S1, and before it I had lots of pain in my feet. It wasn't in my heel though -- more on the sides and tops of my feet/toes. Heel pain can also be from bursitis or something like that, so it's worth it to call your doc. If it's not related to your back, then you could see a podiatrist. I had plantar fascitis some years ago, which caused a lot of heel pain, but wearing better shoes and getting a steroid shot in my foot did the trick. feel better! Schragie

I get heel pain, but also Butt pain, calf pain and tingling in foot. If its only in heel and nowhere else I would check with foot Dr. Usually back issue radiate down the leg and then to foot.

I had a problem with sciatica and it caused horrible heel pain. My calf and my heel hurt so badly I could not walk. Yes....back problems can cause heel pain.

Re: can back problems cause sharp HEEL Pain in foot

Hi there,
When you have back problems it is really dificult to understand what is hurting and for what reason. Back problems cause a lot of other problems. I was diagnosed with plantar fasciatis. Just this past January I finally had my fusion surgery. For the first 2 weeks I had no leg or foot/heel pain. It was really odd to not have pain there. My point is that if the pain went away for 2 weeks then I beleive that it is not plantar Fasciatis and that it is related to the sciatica and other back problems. My GP told me it was PF but my surgeon told me it was related to My back problems. I kinda hope that my surgeon is right on this one. Reason being...Hopefully once I've had my bext ssurgery all my problems will go away. It think with PF it can be a reacurring problem and a very painfull one at best.
Well I probably just confused you more but I hope I helped a bit. Take care. Kristy.
