Doctor :   Fine, After listening to your history of pain over heels
Doctor :   I could think of few conditions
Doctor :   One is calcaneal bony spur which is quite common in many people
Doctor :   the other could be improper foot care along with foot wear
Doctor :   YOu do not have to worry about them
Doctor :   Change your foot wear to a more softer sole
Doctor :   Put your legs in warm water
Doctor :   with pinch of salt in it after your day's work
Doctor :   daily
User :   my feeling is that , it is not related to footwear as am very careful on that front
Doctor :   Ok
User :   i also workout with a professional trainer atleast 4 times a week
Doctor :   But it could be a spur, even for spur you need a softer sole
User :   i wear the softsoles "Floursheim" leather shoes for the last -maybe 3-4 years for sure. But, yes, I wear these continuosly for atleast 10 hours a day
