You know I get burning pain in my left heel at night when sleeping and sometime it will get so intense that besides waking me up, I can't get back to sleep, usually I will end up putting a pillow under my leg so my heel doesn't touch the matress, and that helps a little! Sometimes though I will have to take a pain pill just to get it to ease up enough so I can get back to sleep. I can't lay flat and I sleep in a Fowlers position, I always figure the pain is from the bad disc in my lower back. I also have neuropathy in my feet and legs, so that doesn't help either.
I'm Retired USAF, went back to school and became an RN, and now am on full disability!
