Good evening! The bottom half of my right heel is so sore, swollen, and I cannot put much weight, if any on it. To the best of my knowledge, I have not injured my foot in any way.

I am taking Advil for pain and itís not helping much.

Any ideas? Thanks

I have friends that have plantar fascitis (spelling) They have very sore heel or heels. You might check out the symptoms. Sorry, it hurts.

soaking it in very hot water with Epsom salts. 20-30 minutes, twice a day.

Wondering if you stepped on something or got bit by something and didn't know it. I would watch for signs of infection and keep it clean.

Good luck...keep us posted.

It could be plantar fasciitis. That is how mine started. It can be extremely painful. Get some orthotics in your shoes asap, or purchase some Birkenstocks. I purchased the Vionic inserts and did really well with them. You can have them made for you, at a much higher price, by a podiatrist. Do not go barefoot, even in the house. If you google it, you will find loads of sites with advice for exercises and treatment. There are socks and splints for it too.

Freeze a coke bottle

Freeze a coke bottle and then roll the bottle with your foot. The frozen bottle will numb your foot, and your foot will actually feel better as you roll your foot over it. It isnít a cure, but it does help with the pain. I had to have surgery on both feet (one foot at a time), but the frozen coke bottle trick helped at the end of long days on my feet.
