New Pain in foot

Posted by Kathy on 1/11/02 at 07:29 (069617)

After almost a year of decreased PF pain I now have a new pain in my foot, this time I have no first morning pain and it's now in my arch, the pain will increase as the day goes on. My heel pain has not been bad but my arch has been miserable. Any ideas? Thanks.

When I was having arch pain, I bought a 'arch band'. I got it at walgreen's. I don't really know if it helped but I don't have arch pain these days. Or... you can wrap a ace bandage around you arch an see if it helps you.

I have that......I just went back to my pod yesterday and he is sending me to an ankle specialist before he schedules my surgery......I asked and am being told the pain in the arch is from PF....I told him if feels like something is ripping kinda pain.....I tried the stuff in my shoes for arch support but when I told him it made it feel like it was pushing it upward and making it feel worse, I was told to remove them.....at least for now anyway......I have been dealing with this now off and on for eight years and I am ready for surgery......it has to be better than this......doc says I have nowhere to go but up from here........I sure hope he is right......by the way, have you tried icing that part of your foot?????? it helps some.....for some strange reason if I am sitting and I pull my toes back it makes my arch and my heel hurt less.....I have no clue why but it seems to give me relief for a little while......good luck, Pam
