Sore bottoms of feet!!!

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hey ladies! I am wondering if anyone else has really sore feet (heel bottoms, outer sides..mainly right foot)?

I went through a very bad hormone imbalance at the same time I had a bout of chronic sinusitis and my last period before full blown menopause!!

It took a year and a half of pure heck to finally get figured out that my hormones were keeping me so extremely feeble with crashing fatigue 24/7! It was so horrible and I never heard of anything like it before.

Anyways, I started a low dose of HRT a month ago, and now just started doubling that dose. I am feeling SO much better already!!

But, I started getting really sore soles of the feet about 10 months ago, and I still have very sensitive parts. My husband knows reflexology, and says my most painful spot is connected to my shoulders. But, I feel fine there. Any ideas..or similar symptoms with anyone?

    Yes... me too.  I have tried ACV, black seed oil, etc..  I take many supplements and that doesn't seem to help. It could be related to sleep and hormones. I just buy good quality shoes and rotate them.  I swim and that seems to help with sore feet.  Lately I have been wearing this brand that makes athletic shoes but bought a pair of boots in a bigger size and I bought a really thick cushion for the heels.  It seems to help but I still need to rotate my shoes.  I haven't been to a foot doctor yet but I'm sure they will encourage inserts for your shoes.

      Thanks, I agree.

      I've used insoles in my shoes for years (hairstylist). I now use them in my house slippers as well.

      Maybe I will see a foot doctor after a little more HRT time. It's only been a little over a month.

    Hello, I suffered from something similar years ago when I first started perimenopause and it turned out to be plantar fasciitis. After visiting my podiatrist what I was given were insoles that were solid, so you need to find insoles that you can put in your shoes that are solid, not gel, not soft, and not cushioned ones but harder solid ones. This cure the pain. I have bought several at medical supply stores and online. Hope this helps.
