Can't Believe This!

Posted by Nan H on 6/13/01 at 07:17 (050583)

I have been suffering with foot pain for two years, been to three different podiatrists and now going to an orthopedic sports medicine doctor. I have severe foot pain (heel spurs and pronated? feet.) How I wish I had known that there is such a big supportive network here where I can find that 'there are others' going through all this pain with me. I just haven't known where to turn for support. No one can believe that your feet can be so painful unless they have experienced it.I will be reading EVERYTHING here as I go along! Thank you all so much!

Hi Nan,

Well now you know where to turn for info and support. Most here have pretty much felt all the pains and feelings you have. I can't how much the people here have helped me out. Both physically and mentally.

Welcome Nan! So glad you found us and this wonderful site! I don't know what I would have done without it. It really helped me find out that my feet had a problem with a name and that they weren't just still bruised from my pregnancy weight nine months after I'd had the baby. I've told SOOOO many people about this site and hope they all find the support and help here that I have found. Now if only I could get completely rid of this darn PF!

Welcome! Yes you are right about others just not quite really able to understand. My husband tries to but the 'pain' gets so old to him. Me, well sometimes I would rather bang my head against the wall and have that hurt awhile to get the mind off the feet. Not easy to do is it?
