Severe foot pain

Posted by john on 2/03/05 at 15:38 (168426)

I have very high arches and in the last few years my foot pain has become intense. Unless I can have a foot transplant I don't think surgery would help me since my father had the same kind of problem. The pain is so intense that even morphine does not kill the pain when I am standing. I have been to many podiatrists and have about four pairs of orthotics. Any ideas for a long time sufferer from hereditary foot pain victim. Everyone on both sides of my familiy have had feet problems and some in their latter years lost feet due to amputation. I am not diabetic as far as I know but was exposed to agent orange in Vietnam.
