Hi Swidiraharjo,

Thank you for asking

Heel pain can indeed indicate hyperuricemia (excess purine), or more commonly referred to as gout. This condition occurs when the level of uric acid in the blood exceeds the range of normal values, so deposited in the joints, and trigger inflammation. Not only heels, various other joints, such as fingers and toes can also be affected by this condition. In addition to pain, joints that experience gout will generally also feel warm, reddish, stiff, difficult to move, swollen, until the bump appears quite disturbing.

The excess purines that trigger gout can be caused by a variety of factors, especially from unhealthy eating patterns, for example when you consume too much seafood, steak, offal, alcohol, and also drinks that are added fructose (fruit sugar) as a sweetener. Overweight, genetic (hereditary), consumption of certain drugs (for example thiazide diuretics), to the presence of certain diseases (such as hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, kidney disease) can also increase your risk of gout.

In addition to gout, a variety of other conditions can also cause pain in the heel, such as plantar fasciitis, rheumatoid arthritis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, calcaneus bursitis, broken leg bones, osteomyelitis, achilles tendon injuries, and so on.

To be clear which conditions exactly trigger your complaints, you should go to see your doctor or neurologist. With a comprehensive examination, including also involving blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, or others, your doctor can certainly give you the best treatment. At this time, try to make your complaint first through the following efforts:

Compress the painful heel with ice cubes
Do not massage painful heels
Always use comfortable footwear, padded padded when active
Always maintain your weight so that it is not too fat
When it hurts, rest, raise your aching heel
Not taking drugs carelessly
Live a healthy diet

Hope this helps ...
