Burning in foot.

I have had pain in my foot since May. It started out on the bottom of the heel only when I would step on something. I do have a heel spur, but it has been there since childhood. Now along with that I get a burning pain on the inside of the foot, a little over the arch, but mostly over the heel. This burning happens more with overuse and does not worsen after sitting and then getting up, just if I walk or stand alot. Once
I sit down it will still burn for a while and will ussually flare up really bad for a few seconds and then decrease over and over. Dr. looked at my xray and diagnosed plantar fasciitis even though I have had the heel spur all my life and the symptoms don't seem to totally fit. Dr. also didn't examine my foot or tape it, or check to see if I am flat footed, NOTHING. Maybe it is plantar fasciitis, but it seems like there is more to it. Anyone had something similar? Thanks.

Re: Burning in foot.

It sure sounds like Plantars. I have it and when its bad getting up from a chair or first thing in the morning was horrid. For me anytime I moved it was painful. I was given a strassburg sock wear, this pulls you foot to a position that stretches the tendon while you sleep. I am proud to say it really does work. You'll also have to do some stretching which your doc should have given you instructions on, if not google it and start tight in. It does take awhile to get better and shoes will make a diifference also. Good Luck....
