2. What Are Common Symptoms?

The most common symptoms include pain, tenderness, redness and swelling. The feeling may be similar to a fracture or other serious issue surrounding heel bones. Individuals with Sever’s disease report pain in one or both heels, particularly when running or jumping.

The pain often is worse at the beginning of the day and after exercise. Some adolescents and children will start to limp or walk on their toes to avoid increasing pressure on the sensitive area of their heels. Severe cases may make it difficult to walk without a limp or pain.
