Hello, It started a few months back, after playing football on an astro-turf pitch i would have a dull ache in my ankle and soreness in my foot, it wasn't really a problem unless I put my heel down hard, then i would get a sharp pain. Didn't feel like a tendon pain, more like impact. I decided it wasn't right so visited the doctors, he was pretty vague, and said it was probably tendon strain, but i could flex my foot with ease, and it only hurt with impact. I was told to rest it and it soon cleared up. Now last week i was playing football again and i planted my heel really hard into the ground and felt a painful 'judder'. The pain was really severe in my heel, and i still can't put my heel down a week later, flexing my foot is fine, but the moment i try and put weight on my heel i am in agony. I have been the doctors again and he sent me for an xray, and told me he would inform me if it was broken, i have heard nothing. I have returned back to work but have to walk on the ball of my foot, which isn't doing me any good. I just don't know what the pain is, and it doesn't seem like it's going away.
