i fell from about roof height and put all the pressure on my heels. 1 week later i could not sleep on my back because my heels touching the mattress was too painful. i got xrays at the hospital. The doctor told me i had severe heel bruising and would get better in around 3 months. during the next 5 months i had to walk on my toes because my heels were too painful.. A YEAR LATER i could walk better but not normally, i was putting weight onto other parts of my feet. My heels feel like they are made out of glass or something like that. IT HAS BEEN 2 AND A HALF YEARS NOW. i have worked part time during this, so i have had plenty of time to rest. but this year i did a full time week and had to walk around everyday or just be standing. The pain got even worse. it went from being painful to unbearable. it feels like my feet are burning all the time. while my heels are touching nothing its quite comfortable. resting on my bed gets uncomfortable while my heels are touching the mattress. Walking around drains my energy quickly (because its painful) and the pain keeps increasing while im standing. theres been days that iv had to sit down on the ground because i cant take the pain any more. after resting for about an hour the burning sensation will go down but my feet feel uncomfortable. i went to a FOOT MECHANIC, he said that iv been walking wrong this whole time and i need to learn to walk again. he can make me a sole for my shoe that would help me put pressure on the right places of my feet while i walk. Other then that he said he doesn't know what the problem is. Should i get the sole ? its expensive ! and even just wearing shoes is uncomfortable because they are tight around my feet and it starts to hurt.
Yesterday i went to a FOOT SPECIALIST. i told him my whole story and straight away he said he cant help because it sounds like a CHRONIC PAIN problem. He said thers nothing wrong with the structure of my feet. He is sending me to a CHRONIC PAIN DOCTOR. He did not ask me any questions. (was expecting some help) Is there anything else i can do ? would an MRI help ? im 24 years old.. thanks for reading.

Just see your primary care doctor or orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist right away to determine why and get treatment.
