I started having pain in my feet about 8 months ago and in addition to seeing my general md, saw 2 podiatrists and 2 rhuematologists before finally being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. No one could say for sure until the rhuematologist prescribed prednisone for arthritis and the pain was gone in 4 days! It was a relief to finally know what I was fighting and that there was something out there that would actually help!
Don't give up until your doctors figure it out......persistence will pay off! Good Luck!

For the arthritis in my foot, my podiatrist recommended trying MBT shoes. You've probably seen similar shoes such as sketchers shape ups. These MBT's are the most comfortable shoe (and most expensive) I've ever worn. I seldom use any pain reliever since getting them.

I'd forgotten about Quinine. My dad's doctor had him take it years ago for his legs or feet (can't remember) Linda C

I have Neuropathy and your's does not sound like mine. My feet hurt and burn so badly at night, many times I would get up and soak them in ice water. Any kind of shoes hurt. I cannot were socks at all as they are agony on my feet. I am happy to say that I am getting lots better with Anodyne Therapy and can now were shoes I have not been able to wear in years. I sleep the night through now and I thank God for letting me find this treatment.

I always tell my girls " It will all work out " and it usually does.

Yes....good call, I do have neuropathy. I had both great toes bunions corrected with surgery and need both tailor's bunions fixed too.
I do wear the "wick" type socks and New Balance running shoes with big toe boxes.
I take Cymbalta and it works, I tried stopping it once and the pain really got bad.

You should try socks that wick away moisture as they help keep your feet cooler. Do you have neuropathy? Sounds like what my dad you to say about his feet. The doc prescribed Quinine for him an he seemed to think it helped.

My feet are so painful in the morning...it works itself out as I move about but it continues to feel like I'm walking on rocks. I have been trying to wear good walking shoes but I get hot in them. I would rather go bare foot.

Does anyone else have this problem...got any solutions?
