Question: Over the last 3 weeks I've developed a strange, painful feeling in my right heel that appears when I bend down and stretch the back of my leg. Any ideas what this could be?

Answer: Depending on where in your heel the pain is, there are a few possibilities.

Ultimately, you'll need to see a doctor (possibily a podiatrist or orthopaedic specialist) to get a definite diagnosis.
