I have had some heel...
I have had some heel pain on the right back outside section on the sole of my right foot. I am able to walk on it, gets excruciating at times. I have had it for about 2 months. It's not getting any better. I am a hiker and after some hiking it appears the pain moved over to the inside section for a while. But the pain ends up back on the outside section of the sole. Does this make sense to anyone?

Is the pain on the bottom of your heel bone?

It seems to be to the right of my heel bone, it does not hurt when I push on my heel bone with my hand, just when I stand on it.

No tthanks

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Doesn't sound like a heel spur then

There are two other possibilities though--

A stress fracture on that side of the calcaneus--heel bone

A localized area of plantar fasciitis--inflammation of the fascia in that area

You need to have this evaluated with an exam, x-rays and an MRI scan

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
