Should I see a doctor for heel pain with a dark bruise on it ?

I m 30, female and about 200 lbs. I know I have heel spurs and my feet hurt every day when I get off work, but today on the bottom of my heel I have a very dark bruise that looks like blood pooling... it doesn t hurt to touch but is really painful inside as my heels always are after this just a symptom of PF and me being over weight or so I need to get to a doctor?

Spur itself is very painful. Plantar fascitis can be associated as well as neuralgia. You need to wear comfortable soft shoes. Also avoid standing for long hours. Take pain killers as advised by your Doctor and apply Volini gel around the sole for relief. If it still hurts, surgical removal is a choice to eliminate the problem.
