    2yrs ago diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in both feet...I was given orthotics and healed within weeks...a year passes and heel pain comes back in right foot only
    after plasma/cortisone injections failed over the course of months I had the surgery..endoscopic release...

    right at the time of surgery I felt my left heel going bad as well

    surgery was in July of 2012 fasciitis pain in right heel cured

    new problems, BOTH heels start of feeling kinda spongy in the morning ..as I walk/stand as my work day goes on . My heels begin to burn, more and more until it's full blown pain..making it unbearable to walk...at this point over the last 6 months I can't be on my feet for more than 30minutes without being in overwhelming pain.

    been to 2 podiatrists so far
    I've received ultrasound/anodyne/more cortisone/ new orthotics/lots of athletic taping/ anti inflammatory meds/ percosets/ ice /rest/heat/ epsom salts/stretching

    and the last 3 weeks I had a cast/walking boot(right foot only)...I quit weightlifting/exercise/took the 3 weeks off of work...I took the boot off yesterday and my right feels exactly the same as it did before

    so I'm going to cleveland clinic podiatrist this Tues. instead of these little private practice docs I've been going to

    my guess is maybe nerve problems?

    AND: oh ya, my hands typically go numb every night I sleep for the last couple years too...went to a doctor for that, he didn't want to do any testing, just asked when we were doing surgery...so I never went back

    It certainly sounds like some nerve damage. Without seeing and getting some assessments done, its hard to tell what it is.'

    Have you been to the Cleveland Clinic yet? Lets us know how it went.
