Soles of feet

Postby princess P » Tue Apr 07, 2009 11:13 pm

:?: Does anyone get pain in/on the soles of their feet when they get out of bed in the morning :?: :?:
It usually lasts about 10 mins then goes? :dunno:

Yes this is a classic FM symptom.. it feels like you are walking on sharp gravel for a while then settles down (hopefully)

I used to get this all the time but since I went on gabapentin it's not half as bad so I presume it's a type of nerve pain.

Oh yes my feet get very very sore, especially underneath. Some mornings I can hardly put any weight on them, its not very nice. Very sore. When i walk the pain starts in my feet, goes up my legs, once it hits my thighs/back i cant walk any more.

Yes always - i cured it by putting foam insoles in every pair of shoes i wear even my slippers - honestly it really helps - and socks at night if you have cold feet.

Hi

Yes I feel like I'm walking on shingle on the beach for the first 10 minutes and am still suffering problems with pain in the sole of my right foot on and off. Its a bit like the 'tennis elbow' situation which comes and goes....it goes everytime I think about going to the gp about it :shock: I think that scares it off :lol:

I'm nodding ( again) I suffer this bit too. I started off using foam insoles and they were great but then they weren't enough ( even with 2 pairs) so I changed to flip flops. again great and still work. But then a friend bought me a pair of Crocks and they are the comfiest thing I have worn in a long time. I'm on my second pair now and still love them. Only fault is that my heels get dry and dirty.

I am with gilly54.....my daughter bought me a pair of crocs a couple of years ago after they were recommended to me for my foot problems. I now have 12 pairs in different colours and styles and wear nothing else.

The "crocs" I have are the cheapy ones (£2.99 the last pair cost). I very rarely wear anything else - bought black ones last time to wear on more formal occasions where bright pink or blue may be inappropriate :lol:

I'm saving up for a proper pair cos some of them have covered heels lke these:

Hi everyone :) I have had problems with my feet for a few months now. Terrible pain underneath my heels and very sore and tender at the back :cry: . Also the outside of my right foot is painful as well on a day to day basis. If I have been on my feet for sometime this is when I find the problems start. I am in so much pain with them that I have to use my wheelchair around the home when it is really bad as I cant put any weight down on my heels at all :cry: . When I have used my crutches on odd occasions, trying to walk on my tiptoes because the pain is unbearable, I have lost my balance and fell over and hurt myself. Anyone got any ideas what it could be, or is it part of my fibro? The specialist I went to see at the hospital told me that fibro can affect the feet as well. Just wondering if it could be the symptoms of anything else. Kind regards. Sharon g. x. :needhug:

another vote for crocs.....I was diagnosed with plantar faceitis which causes heel pain and pain in the outside of my foot. I have worn nothing but crocs (real ones) for about 2 years now and even the podiatrist approves. For smarter wear I have some called Alice which have a filled in heel. The next pair I want have wedge heels but I am told they are just as comfortable to wear.

Hi all. Thanx mamax9 for your reply.

Does anyone know if Plantar Faciitus is another symptom of fibro, or a seperate thing altogether. If its something seperately, does anyone know what starts it off or causes it. Kind regards. Sharon g. x. :roll:

Have a look HERE I know of a few people with FM who have this so it is an associated problem but not a symptom... that means you can have it without having FM but people with FM can be prone to it.
