Pain in the back of the heal / stiff painful foot in the morning.

I have run regularly but did a park run on new years day. The next day I had severe foot pain. This has remained though not as severe and there is a pain at the back of my heel. Due to work commitments I have to wait a week before I see a doctor. I have taken Ibupfrofen on a couple of occasions which have helped the pain but do not to be reliant on this so trying to cope without.
I have been waking up in the night with a painful foot and it is also painful and a lot stiffer for around 1 and 1/2 hours when I wake up in the morning. I am feeling a bit despondant now as due to do a half marathon in 3 weeks which looks like I will have to pull out of as am having pain walking.


  • Look up "Plantar fasciitis". Sympathies. There are lots of suggested treatments around.

  • sounds like3 it could be the achillies tendon to me....have a look at that and see if it goes with your pain......
