Joanne...I don't know what you've mentioned in previous posts about your heel but if there's pain it very well could be Plantar Fascitiis, It is not too uncommon. There are special shoe inserts that you can order on line for this (a client of mine swore by his). Also, there are specific exercises/stretches for this. Do a web search when you have time and hopefully it will help. One last suggestion that is very helpful: use a can (from the kitchen cabinet) and roll it under your foot to sort of do a "deep tissue" massage on the muscles under there, including the ball s of your feet. Good luck, I hope this helps!
