Brief Answer:
There are many things you can try.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

From your symptoms, it seems that you are suffering from plantar fasciitis. It happens due to inflammation of the plantar fascia.

There are many things you can try to help your foot get better:

Give your feet a rest. Cut back on activities that make your feet hurt. Try not to walk or run on hard surfaces.

Use shoes with good arch support and a cushioned sole.

Do toe stretches, calf stretches and towel stretches several times a day, especially when you first get up in the morning.

To help the pain, ice the area immediately after getting up in the morning. You can use either a store-bought cold pack or a frozen wet towel. Ice for 10 or 15 minutes. To reduce inflammation, take an aspirin or ibuprofen at mealtime.

A 4-inch wide Crepe bandage wrapped around the region also helps reduce discomfort

Consider using soft silicone heel cushions for preventing any further damage to fascia.

If the pain is not responding to these modalities even after 6 weeks, a local steroid injection at the site might be helpful in relieving the pain.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care

I have sort of a rubber band type feeling around my right ankle, not all the way around, very localized in the achilles area. No pain, swelling or discoloration, just a very annoying sensation. Only when walking or putting pressure on the toe area, and only when walking barefoot or in sandals. Don't feel the sensation in a supportive tennis shoe. I was diagnosed a few years back with a Morton's neuroma. Could this cause a numbness or rubber band type sensation in the back of the heel? I suspect also that I have plantar fascitis but not so severe that I've ever been diagnosed with it. Thanks for your thoughts. Age 50, 5 feet tall, 150 lbs. No medical history of importance.

Possibly sciatic problem?
I feel a pinch, almost like a cramping feeling in one specific spot in my left buttock. It is constant and does not feel better or worse at any time or with any stretching or movement. this has been going on for two days straight with no end in sight. I've had sciatic problems years ago and it radiated down my leg, extremely painful, until an injection fixed it immediately. I can't remember if this is how it started. what I remember most is the excruciating pain down my leg.
I am 33 years old, female, with osteoarthritis in both hands, plantar fasciitis in both feet, and narrowing of my lower spine as found in x-rays after a couple years of back pain which is still an issue. Can this pinch be the beginning of the sciatic problem which will make its way down my leg again??
It's not that it hurts too bad to function, more like it hurts so bad because it has been hurting for SO long already that makes it seem more painful.

My 19 year old daughter went for a run. about 6 miles, without incident. She returned to her dorm room, removed her shoe & her left heal was in immediate, excruciating pain. She said it was worse than when she broke her foot. The broken foot she gave an 8 on the pain scale, this she rated as a 12! There were 2 hard lumps, inflammation, hot to the touch - even after icing. The symptoms spread to the ball of her food, near the toes. There were no breaks in the skin. I took her to an urgent care clinic where an x-ray showed nothing out of the ordinary. The doctor said she was a medical mystery, her best guess was plantar fasciitis & to take ibuprofen & stretch before getting up in the morning. The next morning it had spread & started to itch. Her right foot was now showing the same type of symptoms. We went to the ER & this doctor was stumped as well. He prescribed prednisone & an antibiotic & told referred her to a podiatrist if she wasn t showing improvement within 48 hours. Since she was improving, she did not go. She has had 3 recurrences none nearly as severe as the first. Up until last weekend, all symptoms have been in her feet. A few days ago, however, the tip of her finger swelled up to the size of a grape with the same pain, lump, etc. No one has been able to give us a definitive answer as to what could be causing this. Any ideas?
