The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 33-year-old male asked:
Specific location?: Specific location matters a great deal. If the pain is at the bottom of the heel and hurts most with the initial steps of the morning, I would think plantar fasciitis. Heel spur would also be a consideration. Any lateral pain would make me think of a soft tissue injury (ligament or tendon). A physical exam and perhaps imaging may be in order.
A 33-year-old male asked:
Context needed...: This would not be normal in someone who is not engaged in new vigorous exercise/training. Joint pain (versus muscle pain) would make me think of overuse conditions such as osteoarthritis or autoimmune disorders (where the body erroneously attacks the joint lining.) A good collection of history of presentation coupled with a focused exam may shed light on what the underlying problem is.
A 23-year-old female asked:
This could be...: This could be androgen (eg. testosterone) excess due to environment or genetic factors. Risk factors include obesity or family history. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome comes to mind--the diagnosis is based on two of the following three findings: lack of regular menstrual bleeding, high androgen levels, and the presence of ovarian cysts--which may be detectable by ultrasound.
