Foot pain can be a sign of other problems

Seeing a doctor for a complete check up is very improtant. I recently read that many systemic problems can have foot pain as early symptoms. When mine really got bad last November, the doctor did blood tests for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis. Other things like diabetes and MS can cause unusual foot pain as well. Most of us probably have 'plain old foot problems', but it's important to rule out anything that may be more serious.
