pain

Posted by Sharon on 12/10/98 at 00:00 (002617)

What is an air cast? My doctor just suggested ice, Advil, and stretching. No good, or does it take ages to go away? My only shoes till now were sandals (Florida lifestyle) and barefeet. Hate shoes, they are so hot. Gotta do it I guess. At certain times my toes tingle....anyone else? Feels like toesies want to go to sleep. I gave up icing cuz I had no swelling, and don't want to keep taking Advil 3x a day.Seems like overdoing it. So how long before the pain goes away? I have orthotics which feel great except they hurt my Neuromas in the ball of my feet sometimes.

yes..I have pain now in the balls of both feet and severe pain in both big toes which travels along the sp intothe top of both feet..I can barely bend at the big to when I walk...so my doctor has prescribed steel shanks with rocker bottoms for my shoes..I am having a pair of sneakers done..they open the bottom of the shoe and insert a steel plate so that when you walk, you can't bend your foot or arch...i will get them tomorow...i will post a note if they work.

I have been having pain for three years. Some days worse than others. I also have some toes that tend to tingle especially when my foot really hurts bad. I just bought a pair of Birkenstock Arch Supports and so far I really like them. Seems to give me more support. I also use an ankle air cast especially if I know I am going to do a lot of walking. Can't say it really helps a lot but it does add a little more support. I wish you lots of luck.

my pain is like a vise around the ankle upon arising in am and in the arch upon arising after sitting. i now have stabbing sharp (bee sting like) pains in my toes occasionally. this just started!
