Hey lady! I hope you remember me! I haven't posted on this board in a while. I have a foot question for you, if you don't mind.
Yesterday morning I woke up with a painful, VISIBLE spot on my right heel. Later in the day, my right heel stopped bothering me, and my left heel started. This morning, my left heel hurt so much that I couldn't put any weight on it for a bit. Again, there is a visible spot; it almost looks like I have a splinter or a bruise, but I havent done anything to it.
I have self-diagnosed (always a great idea) from Google that this may be plantar fasciitis. However, I do not have any of the key risk factors: my BMI is in the "normal" range and I don't do high-impact work. I do work out ~3 days/week, ellipitcal and weight training. However, this past week, I've been sick, so I haven't worked out at all!
Anyway, do you have any thoughts on this? If it IS plantar fasciitis, would it be common to occur on both sides simultaneously? What would you recommend as next steps? Tomorrow is supposed to be a gym day--should I skip it?
Thanks for all of your help!
