What are likely causes of pains in the heel of your foot?

Plantar fasciitis : The most likely cause is something called plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick tissue that attaches to the heel bone(calcaneus). It can become inflamed and cause pain with walking and running. It can be treated by stretching, anti-inflammatory drugs, and heel cups(can get at pharmacy or sports store). Try a google search for the exercises. Sometimes a cortisone injection may help. ...Read more

Heel spur on back of foot &below back of foot. Achilles tendinitis visible bump on the side opposite of the ankle. Been years. Pains unbearable. Help?

Sick Achilles.: Your comments sound like the findings of a previous x-ray exam. I'm not sure what is meant by "bump on the opposite side of the ankle". If it is in the Achilles tendon, then extreme pain, could make sense. It sounds as though there is something amiss with your Achilles tendon. It would make sense to immobilize the ankle, and begin non-weight bearing until tendon imaging studies can be performed ...Read more

Is pain in heels of feet another symptom of MS?

Is pain in heels of feet another symptom of MS?

Not usually: Pain is rather a frequent problem in MS, but heel pain would not be typical, unless there is an accompanying leg weakness and spasticity, which would cause abnormal gait, and secondary plantar fasciitis. Would definitely seek out opinion of podiatrist, as a simple orthotic would likely help dramatically. ...Read more
