Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query in HealthcareMagic,

Before I could guide you any further, I would like to know a few details related:

- any history of trauma or fall?
- any history of morning stiffness of joints, rheumatic fever, diabetes?
- any restriction of movements over the joint involved?

The most common cause for heel pain is plantar fascitis. This is a condition wherein, there is irritation or inflammation over the muscles and tendons attached to the respective area. Normally, these ligaments act as shock absorbers, supporting the arch of the foot. They may get inflammed due to undue stress to them.

The treatment options available are as follows:
- soaking in warm saline water for 30 minutes daily will help in relieving the inflammation of the ligaments.
- take Tab. Zerodol P twice daily for 3 days and later only when needed
- If it does not relieve with medication, corticosteroid injections are available which can be taken locally and will ensure prompt relief.
- Also another method is the use of ankle braces or splints which you can get it prescribed by a doctor as per the size and use it while walking or during any activities causing stress to the ankle.

Hope i have answered to your query,

Please feel free to discuss further

Nothing works for sensitive teeth. Been to two ntdentists. Have used sensodyne, Rx toothpaste, had mouthguard made for clinching, then teeth trays for fluoride/potassium nitrate treatmes. Nothing has helped. Have never had teeth problems until last cleaning over a year ago.

I use Zerodol 100mg tablets to reduce the pains in my waist and knees. I usually take one tablet in the morning and one in the evening and it has been very useful and in reducing the pain. It has been more effective than paracetamol and other pain killers that I have tried. Is Zerodol useful for arthritic pains? Are there any side effects?
