Foot issues????? Shoes?
2 Replies
skblackman - September 11

I was dxed with fibro in 2001. Miraculously my symptoms vanished while I was pregnant with my two children and while I was nursing my daughter. Ims till nursing my son, who is almost 5 months old but have not been so lucky this time around. In the past I have had foot issues I believe are fibro-related, feeling like I was walking on glass for example. I have a issue now with pain in the ball of my left foot..maybe morton's neuroma frm my research but not sure. Generally I wear danskos or merrills for comfort but I have been looking for a dressier shoe that is comfortable for me but that I can wear with dresses/skirts for work. Any suggestions?

Know what you mean about sore feet. My issue is with my heels. I've found that Earth shoes are very comfortable and are both casual and stylish, although a bit pricey. They are very well made and have a foam insole covered by very soft leather. You can to a search for them online (Earth shoes) and find them for decent prices, compared to The Walking Store in the mall. The quality is very, very good. It really makes the day even harder when your feet hurt. Good luck!!!

Hello - I would strongly suggest you find a board certified podiatrist. FMS presents a number of problems related to ligaments and muscles, plantar fasciitis, Morton's neuroma and bursitis to name a few. You may need orthotics for your shoes. In any event, not seeking medical treatment may result in lasting damage to your foot/feet. After ruling out a mechanical problem with your feet, it may be that the walking on glass sensation is related to nerve pain caused by the FMS. This can be treated with gabapentin or a couple of other medications. Take care.
