I have suffered from heel pain in both heels for around 4 years now, and it has gotten worse over time. My pain is directly under the heel and I can feel some sort of lump that can be moved by pressing it. I have been to 2 different podiatrists, they both told me I have plantar fasciitis without really checking anything or asking any questions. I had 2 different custom orthotics made and modified many times as well as having tried many many insoles. None of that helped. I tried the recommended stretching, icing etc, didn't help. I also had shockwave therapy done, didn't help. Then I had an x-ray and dignostic ultrasound done and they didnt show anything, but I was recommended to go to physiotherapy. I went to physio and they did several things including manual therapy, more shockwave, laser therapy, etc. None of that helped. Then I went to my doctor who referred me to a specialist who sent me for MRI, which again showed nothing. Now I am taking NSAID's which dont seem to be helping. The specialist also assumed I have plantar fasciitis and when I asked about infracalcaneal bursiitis she didnt seem to know what that was and said "there's no bursa under the heel."
She was going to give me corisone injections after I asked for it, but I ended up changing my mind and not getting it since if I really do have bursiitis, then perhaps the injection should be put in a different place?
