Heel pain/plantar fasciitis/collapsed arch?

On Nov 30/Dec 1, I started having pain in a spot on the inside of my right foot just behind the arch. It has been bothering me on and off for the last 8 months (prolonged walking seemed to aggravate it). If it was bugging me and I'd rest, it would usually bug me pretty bad when I first got back on my feet and then subside some (although I don't recall it bothering 1st thing in the morning, except MAYBE Dec. 1). Sometimes if I'm standing and my foot is bothering me, I'll lift my foot up (bend my knee) to give it a break, but I have a throbbing pain where the spot is that bothers me. I finally went to see my doctor on June 24; she said it might be an inflamed sac, tendinitis, or a bone spur so she sent me in for an x-ray but nothing showed up, so she sent me to an orthopedic (appointment was on July 28).

Alright, your statement was so long but beneficial though. I'm a physiotherapist. I'll try to help you solve those inquiry and worries of yours. Its nice that you tried to mention all the things needed to verify your condition. Stress fracture is a small crack that happens into a bone. And sometimes X-ray is unable to detect small cracks. Bone mineral density scan will help you there are hairline fracture. However, lets eliminate the fracture idea because it was sufficient enough that your condition is a musculoskeletal thing. Since you have mentioned that you have a flatfoot, this is the main reason why other complications comes in. Your line of gravity is diverted to another area instead in between the arch of your foot therefore your foot muscles will be stressed out to correct the problem. This is not correctable condition but manageable. You must have a good shoe cushioning to manage your flat foot. Overweight? seriously you have to help your self to deal with that. the prognosis it may take longer if will not manage your self. Avoid strenuous activities and frequent rest period is required. Foot muscle strengthening will be able to help you too for additional support of your foot (search the internet for exercises). Try to put ice for 10-15 minutes to manage the pain. plantar fascitis? I don't think it was a genetic, I've never encountered from my med books.
Collapsed or fallen arch? yes, absolutely they are similar. Hope I helped you with my ideas.
