Doctor Answers (2) on Pain in heel & stiffness
Isolated heel pain and stiffness, usually diagnosed as plantar fasciitis, responds very well to physiotherapy management. But early morning swelling with pain and stiffness of multiple joints may be symptoms of arthritic changes which has to be ruled out. Vitamin D and calcium deficiency brings similar symptoms in active persons too. You may consult with a physician who may refer to appropriate speciality after doing blood tests for arthritic profile.
