What causes heel pain?

I have pain in my heel to the point where sometimes I can't walk on it. It happens when I get up in the morning and sometimes throughout the day. I was wondering if it was a heel spur. I'm also beginning to think it's a certain pair of boots I'm wearing.

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain chronic pain in heel can be due to causes like traumatic injury, Achilles Tendinitis, Brusitis, Arthritis, gout,heel spur, heel pad wear,fibromyalgia ,Osteomyelitis etc..
I would suggest you to consult an Orthopedician and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations like X RAY, MRI SCAN and blood investigations can help in confirming the exact cause and treatment can be planned according to the cause confirmed..
You can be advised to take anti-inflammatory painkillers, steroids,cool compresses can help..
You can be advised to undergo physiotherapy under supervision of a trained Physiotherapist..
You should wear less healed and proper fitting shoes..
Sound wave therapy can also be done for promoting healing..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
