Within the last year I had been having intense pain coming from the back of my heel that is more prevalent upon rising out of bed in the morning and my recent visit to the doctor dx me as having Haglund's deformity
. Has anyone else ever heard of this or had it? I would like to know what you did that help to relieve the pain. Ice just doesn't really cut it and I don't want to rely on Ibuprofen for relief. Oh I forgot to mention that I have flat feet, no arch. Would special made orthodontics help and also can anyone recommend a good pair of nursing shoes
. Since dealing with this it's been hard finding shoes that are just totally comfortable.

I am also having this problem. I have had it for 3 years now to the left foot and heel and now the right foot is starting.
My Dr said orthotics need to be bought every 5 years.
Mine I have been wearing for 3 years and didn't help.
Do you have any back problems.
I found that ice didn't help I needed to soak my feet in hot water for relief.
It hurts a lot in the morning and isn't as bad in the afternoon.
I also wear a thicker pair of socks which seems to help a little.
