Severe heel pain during hamstring stretch

Stretching my hamstrings is a MUST for me daily. Lately I'm having severe heel pain during that stretch. I have never had this pain before. It also hurts sometimes when I step in it "wrong"? This is happening in my R foot which also suffers form permanent nerve damage. Bone spur maybe? Disc? I am fused from L4-S1. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.

  • I don't have lumbar spine problems but I am currently suffering from plantar faciaitis which is also giving me heal pain. I'm performing various stretches, massage w/tennis ball and use a frozen water bottle to ice the area. I'm just mentioning this as another possibility for you. Have you run it by your doctor yet?
