Yes, I certainly do haver very high arches. One thing on that I was
wondering about in that area and that is my orthotics don't seem to be high enough in the arches and sometimes I get an aching up in the arch. Wonder if I brought them in to the doctor could they adjust them in the arch area. I certainly hope this gets completely better, so far I have invested so much time in this therpy that it seems like all I do is work on my feet, but if it works I cannot complain I guess. The worst is that since I cannot exercise like I did and I missed out on the exercising so much that I have gained 20 pounds and now it is pure 'HELL' trying to take it off, if it ever happens! which I am told make the condition worse. Is this a 'catch 22 or what' !!!
