Go to a doctor or podiatrist or physio. Physio really helped me!

I have suffered both plantar fasciatis, torn achilles tendon, and neuropathy in my foot. Plain and simple - see a podiatrist. No pads nor specail supports helped. 3 months in a walking cast and a cortizone shot and I have been pain freee for years. Years of pounding aerobics took a toll.

I feel the foot pain with you. My orthopedist said I had the flattest feet she had ever seen. I don't know where the "arches went"?

I have hammer toes on both feet. Had surgery on 1 foot and it's worse than before...stiff as a board...will not get the other foot done because of this. My left foot has a bunion on it, and I also have a knee that is atrophied...I really don't walk well at all.

One can hope! I've been dealing with plantar fasciitis for several YEARS on and off-mostly on.

I have been worried about pain in my feet while walking and running for exercise and at times just during the normal walking. I went to a local quality shoe store today. (Sole Source) The gentleman talked with me about what I was experiencing and he recommended a "ball of the foot" pad. Apparently as we get older the natural arch in the metatarsals can become flat and cause pain. I bought the product and my feet felt better right away as I ran on the treadmill this afternoon. Whew it feels so much better. I hope this is a long term solution.
