腳跟痛(calcaneus pain)

I am a 22 years old guy suffering calcaneus pain for 2 years. At the beginning, I could stand for half an hour, but after that I started to feel pain in my heel especially calcaneus. Unfortunately, my situation is getting worse and worse and now I cannot even stand for 5 minutes without feeling pain and the pain is even spreading to my ankle. Even when I sit, I still feel uncomfortable for my both foot. I have visited different doctors and they just gave me some anti-inflammatory medicines and I tried many methods such as physiotherapy including ultra-sound wave, shock wave therapy and chinese 跌打針炙. I have done MRI as well, but it does not seem to indicate any reason. I would like to ask is there still any way to treat my pain. Is steriod injection a way worth to try?

Thank you very much!
Dear Philip,
Thank you for your question. It seems that your heel pain bordering you quite a lot and the condition didn't response well to all the necessary treatment. Yes you are right, some patient will eager to try steroid injection at last despite it potential complication like tendon rupture and infection. Although uncommon, there are uncommon causes of heel pain like drug induced tendinopathy, also enthesitis in spondylarthropathy should also taken into consideration. Please consult relevant orthopaedic doctor for opinion and advice.

Thank you.

Dr Fong Chi Ming
