Thank You for this availability!!
my 47yo son, Pharm Tech standing on feet most of 40hrs/wk -
at home today barefoot, standing to use a screwdriver to tighten a bolt,
experienced a sharp pain at back of Lt heel below achilles, NOT under the heel, as he slightly put pressure on his Lt ball as he bent into screwdriver to give it more tightness, "practically brought me to my knees in pain" but unable to reproduce the pain now with foot movement. Am a retired NP, Adult Medicine-Primary Care=VA 25yrs,
ER/ICU RN before that so appreciate your understanding if I ask about
fasciitis or whatever? Has had a mild case of gout in Rt great toe last 4mosthat he said has benn a bit better with a change in diet but not entirely gone & he has NOT seen his PCP about that. THANKS - Mary

I ve been suffering from prostatitist for12 years now. I m now 47 years old and tired of treatment. I ve been on different long term antibiotics, both pills and injections. I m never cured, always have all the classic prostatitis symthoms. Most troubling are pain upon urination, difficult urination, lost of sexual desires and ED. I m thinking about having my prostate removed. What is your professional opinion? Newer treatment or prostatectomy? Thanks, Jules
