Re: Deep heel itch - nerve damage??

Well, you are not alone. I was searching the internet about heel itch at 4 AM (because it wakes me up as well). I've had mine for about 2-3 years, but it comes and goes. I may have it for a few weeks, then not for months. It sounds like the same thing as what you are experiencing...a deep itch within the heel. I have not experienced any other symptoms (such as back pain), but I do have eczema on my arms and hands. When I mentioned it to my dermitologist, he looked at my heel and said there is nothing there (not a lot of help).

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
