Too much Lifting.: Not knowing the reason you were given a heel lift aside, you need to stop using the lift. Call the doctor and explain your new symptoms. The lift height may have to be lowered in order to affect less change over a longer period of time. I would not continue with the lift again until the pain resolves.
