Can foot tendonitis cause pain up the entire leg?

I believe that I have foot tendonitis, and I am wondering if this would cause pain in my leg? And can tendonitis pain go away and then come back?


Joshua Answers:

Hi Annie.

Why exactly do you thin you have Tendonitis? Specifically, why Tendonitis of the foot?

Where exactly on the foot?

Extensor Tendonitis? Plantar Fasciitis?

See: What Is Tendonitis?

Yes, it can cause pain up the leg. Conversely, issue with the leg (upper and or lower) can be the source of your foot pain.

That's a general answer. For you specifically, I'd need more information to see what's going on.

Does Tendonitis pain come and go? Absolutely.
