Foot & Ankle Problems Board Index

My only (real) health probs are peripheral neuropathy (no nerve damage but definitely dysfunction), and atypical facial pain (for those that don't know its like a facial "neuralgia").

I've experienced nerve pain (idiopathic) all over my body for the past couple of years now, so I know what it feels like. Not to mention seeing various specialists, neurologists, etc.

Anyway, within the last 3 weeks I've been having an immense amount of pain in my feet; something that has NEVER happened before.

I saw my primary, who suggested I buy different shoes (I work 40 hours a week as a salaried manager, and am also a full time student) the shoes i currently wear for work are these slightly tight fitted stacy adams and he says it could have contributed to the problem. He also suggested re-doing some nerve conduction studies to see if their is any nerve damage (which both he and I doubt).

Nothing further, just take aleve 3x daily.

I saw him almost 2 weeks ago, and it hasn't got better.

Off and on i get burning (but it doesn't feel like the burning I get from nerve pain, almost like an inflammation) in my heel, sometimes between the toes, and mostly where your ankle meets the foot, and like the "middle" of your foot.

A couple of things I've noticed while going over the past few weeks. I've worn different shoes for work which definitely fit a little looser, bought "orthotics", etc.

When I wake up in the morning, its so painful to walk i can barely make it to the bathroom (which is only 10 ft away). But one I "wear" my feet in, and walk on them for a little while, it gets easier. Its almost like thier "stiff."

One thing I noticed before this whole thing started is a "tenderness" in my left foot, on the left hand side, when i pushed on the bone, it hurt like hell; unlike the other side. Sometimes this "bone" burns/hurts also.

Another thing I've noticed, is that my feet hurt when i walk 90% ONLY when I actually "arch" my feet (step off of your toes and have your foot arch). When I don't and kind of "march" the pain stops considerably.

Insurance isn't an issue as I have a really good HMO, but time is a factor. Please let me know if any of you have any suggestions. As mentioned above, I have a history of nerve dysfunction, but this doesn't feel like that at all (I know I'm not a doctor) but I have a feeling this is something else.

Please advise.
