Socks too tight!

Does anyone else have this problem? I can barely get my socks over my heels! I have knit several pair, following instructions. They fit fine once on, but there must be something I'm doing wrong. I have mostly done cuff-down, one pair toe-up, same problem. I do magic loop, and want to try two at a time, but I want to avoid/eliminate this problem. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I make very traditional socks (I call them utility socks) and for the cuff, I do 2 knit, 1 purl to about the ankle, then decrease to 1 and 1. It's hardly noticeable, and solves the problem of a too tight cast on
