Hi I am 19 and I think I have heal spurs. My feet and heals hurt really bad. I can hardly stand or walk for a long period of time. I have to wear shoes with a lot of padding or support just to help ease the pain. It also makes my back hurt. I guess what I am asking is does anyone else have this and if so do I need to go to the doctor or just put up with the pain or do any of you have any ideas or suggestions for the pain?
There are way too many things that could cause the symptoms you describe for anyone here to answer properly - first stop for me would be the pharmacist - as someone really needs to see & maybe feel the area before commenting.
You may be wearing poor fitting shoes, doing too much walking (or have been at least!) or you may just have built up dead skin that needs to be filed/rubbed away to make it better. Or you could have an injury that you have made worse by not getting treated (you may not have even known about it!) or you may have spurs??????????????????
