Tell me how you fixed it! And how long did it take? I've had it a for a few weeks now and supposed to be doing a 10k in a few weeks time - help!!!

Put a heel rise in your shoes, ibuprofen and paracetamol and specific exercises from a remedial osteopath.
Good luck!

Thank you - hadn't thought of a heel lift. Off to google them now smile

Magic physio tape for extra support, do the exercises heel raises if i remember right, and no squats as they made it worse for me.

heel raise from boots, made a world of difference, after 18 months of suffering in not quite silence, occasional exercises

I have friends in my running club who have had it and it can take months to recover. Drink loads of water for tendonitis and good luck! I found the physio shock wave treatment worked really well on my knee tendonitis but not sure it is so effective for the heel.

I've had this and its horrible you have my sympathy.

Exercises really help as does naproxen (v strong anti inflammatory from drs).
