My doctor told me to NEVER go barefooted. I ordered custom orthotics and they help, but not as much as a shoe called Mephistos. They can be found only at Nordstroms. Go to the web site and find them. Nordstroms.com. They have made a significant difference. Not all styles of this shoe has the arch support, so you'll have to try some on to see which one suits you. I got the brown suede looking slip on mule. They are expensive, but if it enables me to walk, they are worth every penny. Its an investment in my feet.
Try strapping your foot, learn how on your computer,,there are videos to learn. The shots I got form my podiatrist helped at first, but now they are not effective. Good shoes have proven to help me a lot, but I still am considering the shock treatment as I must do something.
Good luck to you, (email removed)

Hi Rose ,

My name is Dr. Z . I am one of the doctor on this board. How long have you had this terrible pain ? If you pain is severe and you have had this for over six months and nothing has really helped you then ESWT could be your answer.Do you know anything about this non-invasive non surgical procedure?
