Suffering with pain caused by calcanneal heel spur. GP has booked me in for cortisone injection in heel, but not under x-Ray.

From what I've read they are a bit hit or miss and I don't want to put myself through the trauma of an injection in my heel if it's not going to help.

Anyone????????

There's no need to be snotty. I just wanted to know if anyone else had found them helpful or not.

I had similar problem of heel spur and it appeared like bone growth in both heels. Got blood report for vitamin D and found it too low. Started heavy dose supplement and it gone away completely while shoes and insole remained same.

Hardly irrelevant given the nature of the job and the likelihood that many on here have possibly had the same problem is it? :roll:

If you’re unsure, ask your DOM. They seem to be more qualified in medical matters than GPs!!!
