How do I know if I have bone spurs on my heel. every morning when I get up I cannot put weight on my left heal because it feels like there is a knife sticking in it. it eases off after a while but, never completely goes away. Is this a sign of a bon?

Calcaneal spur: Xray would show the bone spur. You probably have inflammation in the fascial tissues underneath the skin. Anti inflammatory medicine, stretching, icing and physical therapy may help
