Your story sounds like mine. My right foot then slightly in my left foot and after about 2 yrs. I got x-rayed and had a huge spur in the right and a smaller one on the left foot. So my best advice is - don't wait that long to do something positive for your feet. It took an additional 2 yrs of lots of pain and trying everything before I finally was informed about Birkenstock shoes. I started wearing them May '97 and have been wearing only these shoes (never barefoot) since. I now am pain free and have been since about Aug/Sept '97. It took 4-5 mths before I my feet were really good and then I had a slight residual arch tenderness (no heel pain) remaining in especially my right foot. I started taking glucosamine and also calcium with magnesium tablets twice a day. About a month after that the last little pain seemed gone and I am still doing very well today. Still on my Birks, though. Hope this helps you. Feel free to e-mail me if you want any more info on what I've been doing. Good luck, Diane R.
