Pain - Heel

Pain-heel is an uncomfortable sensation at the back of the sole of the foot. Pain-heel, pain in the heel, or heel pain often occurs as a result of a condition called plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation of the tendon that stretches along the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis and heel pain are very common in people with rheumatoid arthritis, and may be even more likely in those with very high or flattened arches in their feet and overweight people. Pain-heel can also be caused by a stress fracture in the foot, tendinitis, or injury to the nerves. Pain-heel may also develop from standing an extended time or wearing shoes without enough cushioning in the soles.
