It feels like there is a needle in my heel........need advice
This morning I was walking out the door taking the kids to school, as we were walking out the door I got this sharp pain in my heel like I had stepped on a needle or glass, It's strange, I had my shoes on at the time. Since then I cannot put put pressure on my heel or touch it cause it shoots a sharp pain up my heel.

I have looked it over pretty good, cannot find anything there. Took a shower and the water didnt sting it like there was a cut or anything but it feels like something is loged in my heel.

Can I soak it or something to extract whatever is in there out?? Need help and dont wanna go to doc

Sounds like plantar fasciitis which tends to be worse in the morning. [link to en.wikipedia.org]

Plantar fasciitis

What are the symptoms?

Most people with plantar fasciitis have pain when they take their first steps after they get out of bed or sit for a long time. You may have less stiffness and pain after you take a few steps. But your foot may hurt more as the day goes on. It may hurt the most when you climb stairs or after you stand for a long time.

If you're really active, running shoes should be replaced every 4 - 6 months depending on the wear and tear (around 500 miles). Treat yourself to a new pair and get some proper inserts made to correct the way you step.

Hope your heel heals! hf

Re: It feels like there is a needle in my heel........need advice
This will probably sound strange, but since you asked I'll add my advice and story.

I've had similar problems with my feet, mostly heels and ball of foot since 2007. Not megellons disease, no crawling creepies, sores or rash.

But something that feels like glass splinters working their way out.

Anyway, happens suddenly for apparently no reason that I can figure out, yet.

In case what you have happening is similar to what is happening to me, here is what works for me.

I soak my feet in hot water with sea salt, take a magnifying glass under bright light and try to locate the exact spot where it hurts. Then I sand off the callus on that spot until a semi-whitish spot is visible. The latest spot on my heel is shaped like a triangle.

Take a needle and gently prick this spot with a flicking motion. No need to dig, or make a hole in your foot to get it out. Once you open up the skin it will pop out.

Appears to be some sort of mineral,something like a piece of hard skin..or sometimes a cluster of semi-transparent rods maybe 1/8th to 1/14th inch long..neither object seems hard enough to puncture the skin. The rods are brittle, but not strong. Looks just like the pieces that come off of the mineral Selenite, the clear variety..

I have also had what appears to be fine black hairs with no roots come out..had on on the side of my little toe where no hair ever grows.

Once the object is out, the pain is gone, no festering and the spot where it was looks like nothing happened..That is if you don't make a hole to get it out.

You might not get all of it out the first time, but even getting a little out will greatly reduce the pain. Nice to have someone help you as it if hard to work on your own heel.

Hope this helps..

DOESN'T sound like Plantar Fascitis, unless the pain is in front of the heel and up under the foot. If this feels like a needle IN the heel, and "going up the heel", it's something else. Spoken from a physical therapist who has treated many many PF patients ......

Re: It feels like there is a needle in my heel........need advice
I wonder if this is a heel spur?

I have plantar faciitus and needed a doctor to get it under control. I've tried custom orthodics but they didn't help much. After 15 years the most comfortable boot I've found is Ozark Trails from Walmart. Here's why. The heel/sole material is cheap and thus offers cushion that the more expensive boots don't offer. Plus the heel is partially hollow which gives it more compression and thus comfort. The model I'm talking about cost $40. I wouldn't buy their cheaper boots.

THIS !

I had it once and it hurts like hell. Stop wearing ill fitting shoe's, slippers. Do stretching excerises and buy yourself some heal padding to ease the pain when walking. It will go in time, at least mine did.
