I too have the large, hard lump on the back of my right heel. Mine came after having to constantly sprint a fair distance, sometimes out of nowhere. I worked as Head of Security in two casinos that were separated by a paved parking lot. It wasn’t that bad at first, but got to the point I could hardly walk. This was at the end of 2010. It gives me pain a lot of the time still. Especially when I’m on my feet walking around for a long period of time. I went to the local fossil of a podiatrist and told him my problem. He did x-rays of my foot, then proceeded to tape it and told me I was good to go. When I asked him what the bump was, he said “What bump?”. I showed him and he took out a little square pad and cut a semi-circle in it, stuck it around the bump, taped it and sent me on my way. He said it may be a bursitis, but with the fact he had no idea what he was doing, I’m seriously wanting a second opinion. Is there anything to do for a bursitis? I would really love to get this taken care of. It hurts a lot. Especially when I get up in the morning and try to walk.
