Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me the exact location of your sore heel? Is it directly on the curved bony portion? More toward the bottom of the heel? Along the Achilles tendon? Have you had any accidents or trauma to your heel that you recall? how old are you? Any other medical problems? Thank you in advance for your replies.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
