So quick back story. I'm a new runner. I've been very sensibly upping my weekly mileage, not going too quickly blah blah.
Anywho, about 2 months ago my heel starts hurting. It is not my achilles and it is not plantar fasciities. It is literally the back of my heel, you know where you would get a blister on your heel? That area. It doesn't hurt while running, it doesn't hurt while sitting not doing anything, it hurts in the morning when I walk, I'm stiff and hobble a bit and it hurts if I start to walk after sitting for a while, particularly walking down stairs (up is fine). It's like it's stiff. No swelling or bruising in that area.
I realised my running shoes were probably a bit small, so have been properly fitted by a good running shop . I've taken 2 weeks off but it's not improved. I can't find any way to stretch the area apart from flex and straightening my toes. But in short I have no idea what is causing the problem, Dr Google has not provided any insight.
Can anyone help at all?
