I'm thirty-seven years of age, six feet/zero inches tall, and
weigh approximately 210lbs to 215lbs. If I sit for a period of
time, whenever I attempt to walk my left heel has a very sore
sensation to the point which I can hardly step down on my left
heel. I like to jog/walk two to three miles sometimes before
retiring to bed whenever I awaken in the morning it's extremely
difficult for me to walk especially if I apply any form of body
weight on my left foot. I have sit down and applied pressure
on my left foot/heel with my hand in an attempt to try to
determine exactly where I might have possibly injured my heel
and/or foot. When I apply pressure with my hand, the sore
sensation is not near as intense as when I step down on my left
heel and/or foot. Could this possibly be a circulatory symptom?
My family has a severe track record of heart problems and cancer.
I have this same problem. It was diagnosed as Plantar Fascitis
and involves inflammation/injury/stretching of the long tendon that connects the bones of the forefoot to the heel. It was complicated in my case by an autoimmune disease, but you can develop it from a running injury, foot architecture problems-high arch, pronation, pedis/cavus etc., or any form of arthritis. This problem will not get better on its own, and requires that you see a podiatrist/foot doctor. Every morning when you step down on your foot you are stretching and re-injuring your plantar fascia tendon. The doctor may tape your foot, prescribe NSAIDs, do therapy, and use cortisone injections. This foot problem needs consistent remediation, and will involve a long recovery period. I suggest that you read up about this problem on the WEB to learn more about it, and learn about what you can to to alleviate this debilitating problem.
Recommend resting the foot and soaking in sea salt. I think we can detox the body. The foot represents our foundation in life. Think of areas that may need healing (heeling). Meditation is a great start and then energy healing. I'm going through this journey now and will post results later. And may I say OUCH on my left heel.
