For the past few months I have extreme pain in my heels every time I get up from sitting/lying down. After I'm up walking around the pain goes away. It seems that the pain is worse when I get up to walk after a lengthy time off my feet. Could this be some sort of deficiency in my diet or related with vitamin/mineral intake or lack of??
Hi Not quite sure here is it one or both? sounds like it could be what we call in England policeman's heel, see your doctor, and if so you will need cortisone injection, and this ahs to be in the sole of your foot, its a bit like standing on a drawing pin, but you have to wait for the doctor to pull it out, ouch, had it done on both of mine at times.
