Weird pain at the side of my heel

Hi. I have a strange pain that happens on the outside lower part of my right heel. It sometimes happens when I walk but is really prominent when I start to pioint my foot inwards. It's very painful when it happens and feels like something is pulling but there is also a bit of a burning sensation there too. It also happens if I stretch my leg out fully. It's been getting worse over the past two weeks or so.

Does anyone know what this could be, and if it would go away by itself with troubling a doctor? I've read up on heel spurs and Plantar Fasciitis and don't think it's either of them.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Weird pain at the side of my heel

I'm not sure, however, be careful of picking a doctor. When I first got my foot injury symptoms I was seeing my doctor for something else. I mentioned my foot condition and she said it sounded like fasciitis to her. She had had it herself in the past. She gave me some tips. It got worse so I went to see a podiatrist. He confirmed that is what it was, gave me a cortisone shot in it and an insert to wear in my shoe.

Nothing helped me. I wish I had really gotten some referrals but going to him. My insurance covered some, but I had to pay a lot out of pocket too for the insert and shot. It was really money wasted. Be careful of who you see.
