there is a tendon the stretches from your heel to your toes (approximately) and that can tear away from the heel and cause heel pain. I used to get that and went to a foot doctor for help. I can't remember what it's called but he tried me with orthotics(sp?) and when that did not work, I had to have surgery on both feet for the same thing, now I am cured tho, was after the surgery healed. I keep trying to remember the name of the condition but I have old timers disease I guess.
