i Have a sore spot on the back of my right heal similar to another post on here called (I have a very painful sore knot on my heal.)The only differances are mine started when i was running and i thought i felt something pop, the pain was very bad and now i limp some from it.Also when i move my foot in a calf raising motion lifting the front of my foot and my toes i feel tendons like pop and it seems to releve alot of the pain and i can move my foot like this several times and it always pops and relives tension in my heal for some reason.there is no sac like in the pics of plantar fibrmatosis nor do i belive it is gout but again i am not a doctor but would love some relief.Hi Lenny,I think in order to get some relief you may have to visit a doctor. If you felt something pop while you were running, there is a real possibility that you have a tear in your achilles tendon or even popliteal tendon which is a smaller tendon in the back of your heel which goes undiagnosed many times.Since this is potentially a tear it needs to be examined by a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. The sooner it gets better, the sooner you can resume your activity.Marc Mitnick DPMDISCLAIMER

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
