antidepressants can have some effect with pain relief. I have tried them and got a little relief and they do help with mood. You take a very reduced dose for pain relief, not nearly as much as for depression. They might be worth trying. I talked by phone with a shoe store owner in Canada that helps people with foot pain. I told him a lot of my foot pain was caused by a mechanical problem but that I had no luck with orthotics or inserts. Also that the Birkenstock sandals that help other people are absolute torture for me. He suggested I try an orthopedic shoe company and see if they could make me something, either a shoe or an insert. I had to drive 110 miles to the closest one (one of the joys of living in a very rural area). I also had to be referred by a doctor. My local physician referred me.
they are going to try and make me an insert. This is is my absolute
last alternative. If they help it will be a miracle. I will post later and tell everyone the results. If they help they may be one more alternative for PF and foot pain sufferes to try besides a podiatrist or orthopedic doctor.
