I have commented on this in another post, but cant find it. P/F and H/S are a different. I had PF and it was quite painful, had to walk with crutches for a while then a cane. It took a series of steroid shots and special orthotics to get rid of it, after a year or so, but it still rears it's ugly head now and then, except in both feet now. 121212, is correct you can have one or both problems at the same time. If you have both and its service connected calim for both. You may want to spend the money and go to a pvt. foot specialist and see what they say about your condition.

so while they are interconnected and related, they are two seperate issues--one dealing with bone, the other dealing with soft-tissue. File for PF -- pain and limited ROM. If your SMR shows PF, then the VA should directly connect, otherwise you'll have to go for a secondary to heel spurs connection which will probably mean an IME to connect the dots.

Make the VA say it is not service connected, don't do it yourself because the most you can give yourself is 0% and they can give you a lot more if you have the problem.
Put another way, if you don't file, the answer is no...they can't say yes unless you ask.
