The only symptoms I have are mild pain while at rest. The severe pain and weakness occur when trying to climb a flight of stairs. I am prone to Charlie horses in my calves and this pain feel kind of like a Charlie horse that won't relax. Thus far the only thing that is helping is staying off of it..

I tore a muscle in my foot about a month ago, near the heel. My general doctor told me not to take any anti-inflammatory medications. My podiatrist told me it was ok to take them and seemed puzzled by this. I am taking some prescription pain medicine and am in a wheelchair, walking boot with an orthotic inserted, use crutches around the house, am icing the area and keeping it elevated. I was also placed on a leave from work for four weeks so I can focus on getting better. I hope it heals quickly..
