Brief Answer:
Heel Pain

Detailed Answer:
Sorry to hear about your problem.

I see your diabetes is well controlled so that is good.

Heel pain can have many causes.

A simple Xray will help rule out a fracture.

Sometimes vitamin D deficiency causes bone pain in various parts of the body.

A simple blood test called '25 hydroxy vitamin D' can be performed to assess the body's vitamin D stores. This test can be done at any time of the day or night and does not requ8ire fasting.

It is also a good idea to do routine blood tests such as CBC and liver/kidney/electrolytes/calcium and TSH along with uric acid to look for other potential causes such as gout and thyroid problems

I can hARDLY FALL ASLEEP, walk and my back and legs are in pain constantly. In am 57 man, july 2007 years ago have right knee meniscuous tear repair surgery, 03/01/12 had to go to the emergency room I couldnt urinate and when forced in terrible pain and lot of blood came out, spen all day in the emergency room until the infectiion and blood stopped looked like an infected blood clot to me, but Dr says it was kidney and bladder infection . After all the test, they say I have a cyst on each kidney, but that doesnt has anything to do with it. Only thing that made me feltr better for about 2 weeks after the emergency room was the morphine shot they gave me, I was able to walk at least 12 blocks back and forth to see the doctor. Now if I lift anything I get pain at both side of my lower back, on this week and am feeling worst, cant sleep a lot of muscle, bone pain , extremely pain in my back and very very week, walk half of block and got to stop to rest.
