I've been having heel pain for about seven months now. This started a day after a session of intense cardio boot camp. Swelling in my ankle, and pain in my heel are the only symptoms. They occur while I am active or at rest, but I notice it most often when I am just sitting or lying down. I have seen four doctors and have had no tests run. The doctors can't figure out my symptoms (as it's not plantar fasciitis), but they have yet to use any diagnostic tools. I just keep getting prescribed NSAIDs. I've done physio and massage therapy. I finally just started going back to the gym, and it seems to help when I run and do weight-bearing exercise regularly. The symptoms don't completely disappear, but they're much less noticeable. However, I still get occasional swelling around my ankle at completely random times.
