plantar fasciitis: May still be plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the ligament connecting the heel bone (calcaneus) with the toes; chronic inflammation can lead to calcific spurs at point of attachment on heel. Since treatments u have tried haven't been enough, suggest seeing a podiatrist for other tx options.

See below: It could be plantar fasciitis or a neuroma or muscle tear. See a podiatrist for exam.

See a Podiatrist: You should have a foot evaluation. You probably need an orthotic for better support.
