My pain is in the left heel...have a hard time getting up and walking. I am overweight and my Pain is excruciating, when walking I tend to baby the left heel. My right heel also hursts but as not as bad as the left one. I roll a ball under each foot nightly but the nerves in my foot are so sensitive. I've used ice, taken magnesium supplements but nothing works. Spasms can happen sporadically throughout the day. I'm a teacher and stand for 90% of the day.

I would appreciate any advice, my SNL a suggested getting a cortisone shot.
