I had my Pfizer vaccines in March and April of 2021, about a week after getting my first shot I started having pain in my heel. I tolerated it for about 3 weeks then went to a podiatrist. He gave me Arthritis medicine, 30 day supply. It did nothing for the heel pain, can barely walk by 2nd half of the day. Bought orthotic sandals and shoe inserts and then stayed off my feet as much as I could. Made it through the summer, extremely limited walking. I just got my booster two weeks ago and the heel is still painful. I am trying a velcro ankle brace since the pain is also going up the inside of my ankle, tendonitis maybe?
If anyone has had this and has found relief, please let me know.
