  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry
    Thanks for the query.

    You seem to have plantar fascitis.

    Plantar fascitis occurs because of degenerative changes in the plantar fascia and tight calf muscles.

    It is advisable to do calf muscle stretching exercises, wearing soft soled shoes, applying ice or hot pack at the inner aspect of your Base of feet. Use a foot drop splint when you sleep as this keeps the calf muscles stretched at night and less chance of pain the next day.

    Take pain killers for 5 days, twice a day after meals. Keep well hydrated. Do daily exercise to avoid obesity.

    If you still have pain after 15 days, you may need a steroid injection near the base of your heel.

    Hope this helps
    Take care!!
