It is probably due to conditions like plantar fasciitis.

As a first line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

In that case you might require steroid injection to the sole.
Wishing all the best.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I have a real bad pain in the back of my heel. It hurts really bad when I first get up and start walking. If I keep walking I can walk it off. If I sit down the pain comes back. This has been going on for the last 4 days. I think it might be in the tendon.

A few weeks ago, I experienced a shooting pain that went through my left testicle and up through my left abdomen, and it felt a lot like a cramp or sprain. It went away after a few hours and since then, I've felt a slight twinge or ache in my lower left back. It hasn't really been flaring up for a few weeks, but for about a week now, I haven't been able to get an erection. Help me?

I ve been experiencing intermittent, sudden, sharp, debilitating pain in my both hands (one or the other, not simultaneously) that lasts from just a few seconds to up to 15 minutes, during which I m not able to use my affected hand. This has been happening for about the last 3 or so months. The pain in both hands is located along the outer side, centered between my wrist bone and the knuckle of my little finger. It comes on regardless of whether I m using my hand or doing nothing at all. The pain feels like a broken bone, but then stops just as suddenly as it started. This happens anywhere from once every 2 weeks to once a day, with no discernible cause. I am constantly at a computer keyboard and use my hands quite a bit for all sorts of activities, but this doesn t seem to be joint-related. Any ideas as to what the cause could possibly be?
