Re: sharp in pain heel of my foot?

Hi catlady
THis sounds like plantar fasciitis to me. It can be a bear to get rid of, but your doctor can help with some solutions. It was imperative for me to get a pair of shoes that had a moulded footbed to support the foot. It is also a good rule to never ever go barefoot.
There is a night splint that can be worn at night to keep the foot in a flexed position.
I hope you go to get some help as the longer you leave it the longer it will take to go away. I had mine for 2 years.
I am sorry that you are suffering- if it is indeed plantar fasciitis! In any case it needs to be diagnosed by a doctor.
Good luck and best wishes
