skippy Posted November 21, 2003 Report Share Posted November 21, 2003 Every now and then on a Thursday i wake up, go to walk and get a pain in my right heel ( just before the start of the arch, directly below the inner ankle joint). Yesterday was particulary bad and i really have had trouble walking and am having trouble again today. Only this time round my heel is swollen and a lot more painful. I am not sure if this is something to do with my pointe shoes or what but the pain always starts after my two hour ballet class on a Wednesday evening. The first hour we study the advanced foundation (RAD) so we wear soft pointes and pointe shoes in the second hour i join the intermediate class and do everything on demi point, again wearing either soft points or pointes. Would the insole of the shoes be causing the pain or could i be looking at a different problem all together. I dont really want to go to a doctor just yet as they have always told me in the past that if i stopped dancing i would not get these injuries or problems...... Please Help it is driving me mad, i am trying to rest it but tomorrow i am back to work for a twelve hour day on my feet plus i will be on stage for a week starting next Friday for the pantomime..
