I have been experiencing HORRIBLE heel pain and this stinging pain on the bottom of my feet.. I was wondering if maybe it's from gaining weight? Has anyone else had this happen??

  • I had heal pain for years..went to the chiropractor and 3 visits heal pain. I had been to conventional doctors and specialist...had orthodics and all of the "usual" help until I saw the healer. LOL I loved him so much ...I went to work for him. Give it a try...couldn't hurt!! good luck!!!

  • It could be a heel spur. I have one and when I gain weight it hurts terribly.

  • It could be a pulled, or stretched, ligament. I had surgery on one of my ankles because it was stretched so far. Usually, its not big deal. Mine usually starts right around the arch area and shoots up the back of my heel into my lower calf. Use an ice packet on it and rest a little. If that doesn't help, or it doesn't feel better after a few days, see a doctor just to make sure.

  • It could be from weight gain. I have foot pain every day, just from normal walking around cleaning and taking care of my daughter. I am also very overweight so I doubt it would happen if you just packed on a few pounds.
