I keep getting spurs, but not the kind on bottom of heel but the back of heel and pain at times. Difficult to lay down. I wear orthotics.
Achilles tendinitis: Although I am not a podiatrist/foot specialist, it sounds like you are describing a bone spur on the back of the heel where the achilles tendon inserts.

Cortisone injections, nsaids, good shoes and supports can sometimes help. If your symptoms have been present for greater than 6 months, then conservative care is not as successful. Usually, surgical removal is the definitive treatment for chronic problems. Dr l. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
