Hi, I'm a new member seeking some advice.
Around 7yrs ago upon raising from a chair I felt a sudden snap like pain in my heel area, I couldn't move my foot for at least 20 minutes and had to sit down. The pain was still on going day's later but not as bad as it was when it happened so I went along to the Doctors who told me it was PF (no ultrasound scan, no MRI etc...) The pain finally eased off.
Then 9 months ago I started to get pain when walking. The pain was directly under my heel and as I have read online that it can take up to 18 months before PF can heal I have put off going to the Doctors, but over the last month the pain has become worse and more wide spread :-( I have swelling which comes and goes to the inner arch towards the ankle but where the arch is (so not ankle area). The pain is also felt at the bottom base / back of my heel where the heel touches the floor but to the back rather than under the heel. Pain is also felt just before where the back of the heel curves inwards on line of the ankle and every now and again I get a pain (the type of pain you get when you sprain you're ankle) going along the outter side below my ankle and along the side of my outter foot towards my toes, but doesn't go that far.
I'm wondering if it is PF or could it be something else? or more than one thing going on here???
I've looked up PF and read on it but then I have read other things too :-( I have tried putting my left leg behind my right calf and raising my self onto tip toes on my left foot (which is where the pain is) and I don't find this painful... but yet it's painful to walk, stand and when resting during the day and at night time (in bed) I get a throbbing pain in the back heel area's as mentioned above.
Thank you to those who can offer any help and advice :-)
