Thanks guys!

I'll hot/cold and see if it helps :)


It is on my knee though, tender swelling inflammation, not a hard callous.

There is a product on the market that fits in the heel of you shoe that is a gel. They take the weight off of the heel.

I had some very hard skin build up on mine two years age. No matter what I did I could not get rid of it. I put there pads in and was able to carry on.

I did manage to soak the hard skin off in the end but it took months.

BTW you can get them on E-bay

I've been thinking that nobody else out there has bone spurs and I just have to suck it up and deal with it. I have one on the arch of my right foot that's touching a nerve and my orthopedist isn't too keen on removing it. It sometimes is very painful (throbbing) and I've found that either heat or cold seems to make it feel better. Cool pack seems to work best in the heat of summer. I use an ace bandage at night to wrap the cool pack around the area that hurts. I've had pain for about 6 or 7 years, Ugh, and I haven't decided about what I'm going to do.

I still try to exercise but it's one of my excuses of why I don't. I keep thinking that they'll find a new way to treat it but until then I make sure I wear the best shoes I can afford and don't overdo it.

Ok, so I went to the Doc today and I have a bone spur on the side on my knee. I'm relieved, because for the past year my knee has been swollen to varying degrees, and in moderate to severe pain. My paranoid brain thought it was a tumor or something. In any case the only real lasting treatment, or rather solution, is surgical removal. That's a last resort.

The other treatments involve ice, pain medicine, and rest. It does seem to be more swollen when I exercise, but I love jogging and so forth. I'm wondering if I should avoid all weight bearing exercises, or just say hey, it's no big deal really, and keep on jogging despite the swelling, and rest when necessary? I mean, it's kinda always at least a little swollen, and from what I've read so far it's not really that uncommon.

I know some bone spurs are caused by age or weight or intense physical activity. Not the case here. I wore leg braces as a child, my legs are uneven lengths, with my currently "bone spurred" knee being the longer one. My doctor explained that this is a side effect of my pre-existing leg issues.


Who here has experience with bone spurs that cause swelling and discomfort? Did you have to avoid exercise? Any natural treatment options that helped you?


(BTW I'm not subbing any of this for medical advice, I have an orthopedist apt. in a couple weeks, but I would still love to hear any personal stories or suggestions :). Thanks!)
