  • I get that too. Not sure what the deal is. Its almost as if the blood is not circulating down there enough. I stand up and let the blood go, and by the time I get out of the shower its pretty much ok.I did sprain my ankle about 2 months ago (but it was in different spot, because this is definitly my heel).Did you find anything out?

  • Did you ever find out what was wrong with your heels?My heels have been sore now for more than 2 and half month. It gets worse when walking a lot and seems to be mostly located in the heel, just under it in fact. It hurts a lot when I walk after I have been sitting for while, but the pan gradually diminishes after walking a while to a dull by bearable throb. It almost feels like my feet have balloons attached to them - especially in the morning - and it seems if these balloons must deflate before I can walk normally. Additional symptoms are cramping in the arches of the feet, cramping in my calves and my right leg has a twitch in it just above the knee on the left side which twitches about 2-3 time a minute, a bit like a nervous tick actually, quite annoying! Another strange symptom: strange bumps around both of my heels, they seem to be part of the heel, just under the skin, not painful, just odd. Rubbing my feet with a good foot balm gives minor relief of the pain.I have gone to my GP and he says my arches need support. I have got some god arch supports which I have been wearing for about a week. My feet seem a bit better but my heels are still very sore. Last night I had some difficulty in falling asleep as my calves were aching so much. So I am going to see it out for the next week, wish me luck! Any other suggestions will be most welcome, thank you!

It can cause the heel spur-sounding 'strange bumps' you mention at the attachment of the fascia near the calcaneus (heel bone)-- as well as the pain you experience particularly in the mornings. It shortens up at night, so when you first walk in the mornings it hurts to stretch back out. Splinting of the foot at night may help.If this is what you have, myofascial release of the plantar fascia as well as the tibialis posterier and calcaneal tendon helps many. Also, rolling your foot over a cold can (like a soda can) in the mornings right when you wake up helps too. Good news is for many this condition is very treatable. :)

  • It would be a good idea to see a podiatrist.
