heel pain

What would cause sharp jabbing pains and burning pain in the heel area of the foot. I have had 2 plantar fascia release surgeries in 8 months same foot. The pain is somewhat different, Now it is more when weight bearing and in the ankle as well. Before it was worse in the morning on first walking. Now it is constant. My nerve conduction test did not show much and regular xrays show nothing as well. I also had a fibrous tissuse mass removed from my cuboid area. Please let me know what you think.

    Since I can’t examine your foot, I am at a disadvantage. In general terms though the symptoms you describe sound like nerve entrapment. Just because it did not show up on a nerve conduction test doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Unfortunately, I can’t tell if it is tarsal tunnel, a heel neuroma, referred pain from your back, or Baxter’s nerve entrapment.
    Have you had a second opinion?
