About a month and a half ago, I got up in the morning with a sharp pain in my right heel. Somedays it is tolerable and other days I am unable to stand and walk. I am 54 and in good health. I had a bone density test done several months ago and no signs of arthritis or osteoporous. Have had no injuries to the foot. What could be causing this pain?
There's a few things this could be. You could have a heel spur, planter fasciitis or like me, you could have calcaneal bursitis, which is an inflamation in the bursa sac in your heel.
You will need to see a podiatrist to see what treatment and/or medication you may need. In my case, they've tried the steroid shot and medicine plus physical therapy. I sympathize. I know how you feel. I've been dealing with this for awhile. I guess it can take a long time to heal. I hope you find out what it is so you can get the proper treatment. Good luck!
