I've getting very desperate, because nobody is able to tell me what is wrong with my foot!
One doctor said it was a neuroma, so he gave me 3 cortisone shots, and it didn't work. Another was honest enough to say he has no idea, so he sent me to therapy.
What I've noticed is that on my left foot, I seem to land on the outside of my foot when I'm walking. However, it only seems to happen when I am wearing foot wear. ANY footwear. Tennis shoes, flip flops, or ballet flats.
When I'm barefoot, it seems to not be a problem.
This seems like supination from what I've read in your blog. But why is it only an issue if I'm wearing shoes?
Thank you so much in advance for the answer. I've had this problem for at least 6 months, and it seems to be getting worse :(
What to do now? It seems like you need some testing, like xrays and MRI, to analyze the problem. A second opinion may be good, but that does not mean you have to switch. Try to create your own pain free environment analyzing the best foot wear at this point. Experiment with various OTC inserts to see if you can discover what protects your foot the best. Ice your foot for 10 minutes 3 times daily to reduce any inflammation.
You can send photos pointing to where the pain is. Try to send me 10 bullet points on the type of pain you have. Am only? Sharp? Aching? Radiating? What helps? What hurts? etc, etc. Hope this points you somewhat in the right direction. Rich
