2007-2009: Wore heels almost everyday.
2009: Pregnancy, stopped wearing heels. along with major back problems, my feet started hurting. Gained 50lbs.
2010: Postpartum, feet continued to hurt, I assumed it was hormones and it would go away eventually.
Currently, I have 10lbs to lose to reach pre-pregnancy weight, but they still hurt. Chiropractor says its plantar fasciitis, podiatrist says its morton's neuroma. I do not think it is either one because my symptoms don't completely fit either. On a side note, my podiatrist also told me my feet are very flexible.
Symptoms: Mainly feels sore, as if I've been walking all day. Most pain is in the ball of feet. I can't even go grocery shopping without my feet throbbing after. The soreness is felt into my calves now as well.
I ice my feet everyday, do streches, and wear orthodic inserts in shoes. I used to be barefoot most of the days but have started wearing my shoes with inserts for the past 2 months during the day.
Received cortisone shots, pain subsided for about 2 weeks and have returned.
Any ideas on what my condition may be? Should I get custom orthodics made? Please help! I'm desperate to get some relief! Thanks.
