After four months of heel pain I dragged myself to a podiatrist who said it was probably a bone odema, or water and bleeding in the heel bone, a repetitive overuse injury that could develop into a stress fracture without total rest (no weight bearing exercise at all). A bit depressing as I was only doing 20 miles a week light jogging and had taken up walking as it was less painful. Also, with no car I have to walk to the shops etc so it will be a long haul. Has anyone else had this and did you recover?

Oops phone playing up... I would be asking the NHS for some help. You can self refer to the hospital physiotherapy department here, you might be able to do that where you are, and perhaps they can assist?

Good luck, as a fellow occupang of the injury bench I understand your frustration!

Hi Daisy, to be honest I feel a bit guilty about bothering the NHS with something quite possibly self-inflicted, hence the private podiatrist, but I think you are right and I will have to approach my GP with a suitably humble aspect, given how busy they are...

Got something to say?
