Quite likely PF

Posted by Rhonda on 9/06/98 at 01:32 (001648)

my pain for the first 2 years was exactly in the spot described...the inside of the arch where it attaches to the heal. I've been told by several professionals that this is a common spot for PF. My brother had pain in the same spot as well and had the orthopedic surgery done on it. My pain has moved since I got rid of the orthodics...more on the heal now and the other side of the arch.

Tell me it isn't true. The pain actually moves to another area of the foot? Why did you stop using the orthodics?
I spent all day yesterday trying on shoes that estimated from the 20.00 range to the 170.00 range. Nothing seems to feel 'right.'
Birkenstocks are definitely out. Clark is a so-so,along with Echo, Metaphisto (?) Josef someone or another too. I had never heard of any of these brands before last week.
So now you are telling me that there is good possibility that one can spend a fortune on shoes, and many other expenses, only to have the pain move, rather than be eliminated. What about exercises?
Thanks for the input. It is much appreciated.
