Thanks for the tips! I generally wear New Balance or Asics shoes. I find that both brands have a toe box that is wide enough for my feet and offer good arch support. Have been wearing Asics more the past couple of years, although I have a pair of NBs that are too lightweight for running but fine for everyday.
My arches have been falling over the past couple of years. I now need to wear a half size bigger shoes. And I got inserts a year or so ago but they were terrible! I just wasn't able to get used to them and found them very uncomfortable. They were prescribed by my GP and not an orthopedist or podiatrist, so I'm hoping specialist might be able to recommend something better. There are, of course, lots of over-the-counter inserts that I can try.
I've been icing my foot several times a day this weekend and it does give some relief. Doing morning and evening stretches and need to make that a forever habit!
Will still be going to the doctor when I can get an appointment to make sure it's nothing more serious than PF, and to get a prescription for some PT.
