The pain in my right heel is not caused by a torn Achilles tendon, but rather an inflammation where the tendon meets the bone. In my case, this is a combination on bursitis (found this at the Mayo Clinic website) and something else that I can't figure out from my notes. The word sounded like "infanchus" but even google can't find anything close. Clearly I'm going to have to ask Dr LeBan about this the next time I see him. (Three months from now.)

Try 'Plantar fasciitis'(pain under the heel) or 'Achilles Insertional Tendinopathy'(pain in Achilles Tendon, near the heel). US spellings may, obviously, be different from UK *g*.
Otherwise Google what you think your diagnosis is with: 'differential diagnoses' to get an idea of conditions with similar signs and/or symptoms.

You can always email him. A lot our doctors' offices are going to online systems where you can email them and access your records and reports.

Hope it feels better soon. Foot pain is relentless and just makes your whole body hurt. *hugs*

The family practice we go to has an online patient portal but the specialists do not. Test results I can access through the hospital's patient portal. Which is generally good but I was disappointed I can't see the actual images from the various tests they've run. Now *that* would have been interesting.
