There is usually pain in the heel that wakes me up. What could this pain be that sometimes wakes me up through the nite?
Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not provide diagnoses or treatment recommendations on line. Your best course of action is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. Since this condition is affecting your sleep, and thus your quality of life, you should do this as soon as practical so that you can get a diagnosis and whatever treatment your physician considers appropriate. You can use our foot pain self-assessment tool to help you identify some possible causes of the pain, but this tool is not a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional. We hope that you will get a diagnosis and proper treatment, and that you will soon be rid of this pain.
