yes. I have been having pain in the right rear of my foot at the heel. I is sensitive to touch pain in one spot. I have trouble walking especially down stairs and especially in the morning. Could this be achilles related? I have not had don t remember any particular collision or impact of any kind. Also both heels really get pains when I stand on them for a while like I am on pics of glass...I am 58 and other than overweight (5 8 and 230) am in OK health...

Thank you. I have been having severe debilitating bilateral heel pain for 13 months. I have been to podiatrist, orthopaedic surgeon, and spine specialist and have not been able to determine a cause. Been on oral cortisone, injectable cortisone, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy and nothing helps. I am going back to another podiatrist next wee to start over. Had MRIs on lumbar spine and right ankle and heel. Nothing done on left one yet. Only thing found is routine back issues with age (age 68) and small bone spur on right foot not impinging on anything. I am at my wits end as I can barely walk. Any thoughts? Susan Behm

Earlier this year I had a gall bladder surgery and then went back and had a stint removed 6 weeks later. After that a week later I could barely walk due to both of my knees. I went to the doctor and they twisted and moved my knees in all directions with no pain. It was only when I walked that I had pain. Now both of my heels hurt when I try to walk or if I have been sitting for awhile; when I stand. I can not get down on my knee or kneel down. My knee locks up. It is my right knee but both heels. I can go up stairs with no problem but coming down is an issue.
