i see where someone was asking about footpain. i was just diagnosed with fibro. yesterday and was wondering exactly where this foot pain was i have some pain on the inner part of my foot and was wondering if this is part of the fibro.

Hi kras618. I have discomfort in my feet also. My feet ache all over, but I have the most problem in the heel and arch. Sometimes my feet cramp and my toes curl up giving me unbelieveble pain. I have found that I feel best in a shoe with a heel no higher than 1-1/2 inches. My most comfortable are a pair of what are called "mules", a closed front and open back with the slight heel elevation. They were a little expensive but worth it because they alleviate so much of the pain not just in my feet, but also my calves. "Investing" in a couple pairs of really good shoes might be something that would help you also. I wish you well.

I second what Gabbie has said. I have alot of foot pain and I have really good shoes (Keens), boots (blundstones) and sandals (Tevas). Good foot wear will go a long way towards having some comfort in your feet.

Most commonly, heel pain is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia — the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes. The condition is called plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis).

Plantar fasciitis causes stabbing or burning pain that's usually worse in the morning because the fascia tightens (contracts) overnight. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. See a doctor to evaluate your feet for this issue.

Yes, I have heel pain and pain all over my foot below the ankle. I have hand pain as well on on the palms of my hand. I am not sure what helps this condition but I am sure that a good shoe will help much it wont relieve it though it will help. I also have shoulder pain, back pain, lack of concentration, sometimes I can't even find the word I want to say in my head, and it's embarrasing. Most people who have fibro and have experienced these symptoms can relate. One thing I did that helped my loved ones understand my condition is print out different symptoms of fibro and have them read it when they could. It helped my family understand what I was going through better. It's hard for people without fibro to understand because there are so many symptoms that come and go and come again that it gets frustrating. Good luck hope this helps.
