Sore feet

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have had fibro for 4+ years. It's getting worse. I now have problems with my feet. One doc said it's the fibro and one said I have a fallen arch and my heel is out of alignment. I also get aches and pain in my bottom area, strange but painful. These are only a couple of problems I have, too many to mention. I have tried the different anti depressants that are prescribed for fibro but they make me worse. Any suggestions please.

    Hi, I was also diagnose 4yrs ago with Fybro & diagnose 2yrs ago with Polymyalgia. I have Ice cold burning/shooting pins & needles pain in feet but it's now spread into hands, at the moment I 've been having Accupunture to try & help with this pain , I 'very had 6 sessions & it's done no good. So now they have lent me a tens machine, so I'm hoping this will help.The Rheumatoidolagy consultant says its nerve damage, so if anyone else has this problem & are taking any medication which is helping can you let me know. I'm on Gabapentin ( GP won't prescribe Preglin as it's expensive ), Amitriptlyne, Codiene, Tramadol. Get your GP to refer you to Physio & get insoles if they reckon it's fallen arches, also if you are walking awkward you will get pain at the base of your spine.1st get your feet checked then go from there. Good Luck !!!!

    if it feels like you are walking on a pepple beach without shoes it more than likley fibro, i go thru it alot hurts like hell when you put your feet to the ground not so much once you have winced your way to putting your weight on them and start moving, also hurts when you take the weight of them as well.

    to me its like someone has taken a cricket bat and beaten the soles of my feet

    magnesium foot soak is a very good treatment to releave pain.

    hope this helps

      aabb you need to have your feet properly aligned. My son had this very problem. He went to a Podiarist (foot specialist). He made these special insoles for him & his problem was solved. They are expensive & have to be renewed every so often when they wear down but the comfort is worth it

      Thank you for getting back to me. I did go to a Podiarist and they did give me insoles which do help a bit. Just so fed up with being in pain all the time.
