What are signs and symptoms of Sever condition?

Sever condition causes pain at the back of the heel. The pain is increased with plantar flexion of the ankle (pushing down with the foot as if stepping on the gas), particularly against resistance. Sever condition also causes tenderness and swelling in the area of the pain.

I get this pain in my heel about once a year, I really don't know if it is Sever condition that causes this pain, but it is a very bad pain, so bad I need a cane or crutches to walk with. At night I have to sleep with that heel hanging over the bed. And it's the most painful in the morning when I get out of bed. Soaking my foot in hot water seems to bring some relief.

I experienced some pain for 2 days at the back of the heel. The pain flared up in the night after the 2 days pain. It was so painful I could not sleep whole night regardless how I positioned my leg. I had experienced spur pain many years back so I knew it was not bone spur. I couldn't walk normally the following whole day. I noted pain was alleviated if I raise the toes upwards. The point behind the heel was swollen. I anticipated same pain condition the following night but it did not return. I recovered 50% the following day and was almost cured of Sever's condition the next day. Following that I was able to do some running exercises without any problem.
