Please read the board, it will take time. WE are all here for you anytime. Many of us have suffered for years and are depressed and saddened by the new lifestyle we have to take. Please get to an Orthopedic Surgeon who deal in the foot,but to tell you the truth this board will be much more valuable and sympathetic to your situation than any doctor would. Icing your feet will help the pain as well as OTC Ibuprofen. Many of us have taken lots of RX meds and had them not be able to help. I was up to 24 ibuprofen a day finally my stomach got messed up and I am on Aleve now. There is hope!!! There is a new treatment called the Ossatron which should be practiced by Ortho's later this year. It is in the final stages of approvement of the FDA. We are willing to answer your questions and give advice but PLEASE READ THE BOARD BEFORE YOU ASK QUESTIONS, REALLY!! Blessings and stay off your foot as much as possible.
