My right foot has been KILLING me lately.

It's gotten progressively worse, but it's been bothering me steadily for about 2 months now. I have very supportive shoes and special foam insoles, and have never had pain this constant in my feet before. The pain is located on the bottom of my right foot in the center arch. It's like a dull pain, but it never goes away. At the end of a workday it's become almost unbearable to stand on it anymore. There's nothing that looks weird about it; no discoloration or anything abnormal looking.

Any advice? I'm really hoping to avoid a doctor visit if I at all can.

@nononono,
If you've been babying it along for two months, waiting might not be the answer. Still, if you want to be stubborn, try a different shoe for a few days. I do understand the ones you have been wearing are special, but that's all I can come up with.

ETA: I don't suppose you got those shoes days or a few weeks before the pain started. That would be just too obvious.

Nope. The shoes I wear most often are ones I've had for about a year. They're very comfortable. At home I'll wear flip flops or slip ons sometimes, but even then my foot still hurts. I'm on my feet for the entire shift at one of my jobs, and it's incredibly painful afterwards.

Hrmmm. Nobody's ever experienced something similar to this huh? Guess I better at least WebMD it... even though it'll probably just tell me that I have foot cancer or something.

@nononono,
They will probably tell you you have planar fasciitis, or something like that. Which is about as useful as telling a kid with teary eyes and a runny nose that he has rhinitis. Give them a shot, though.

Well I went through what you have right now. What ever you use does not help this problem. I am afraid to say that is an inflammation. And I got the medicine from the doctor. Then it went away. Two months already I think the best you go to the doctor.

@nononono,
Ask a doctor about plantar fasciitis.
Or research online

how do your feet feel after you've been sleeping?

if you've been wearing them for a year at a job where you stand all day the shoes are overdue for replacement.

also, try not to wear the same shoes every day - have at least two pairs for work you can alternate. it's better for your feet and will extend the life of the shoes

@nononono,
You should go to an orthopedist or podiatrist and have it xrayed.

When I fell and broke two vertebrae and dislocated my pelvis, I thought that was the extent of the injuries except for a minor sprained foot. The back and pelvis got better, the foot got worse.

Many months later, I finally had the foot xrayed and it turns out I also broke my foot in two small places, one of which is the joint that connects the heel to the main part of your foot. The arch was always sore, especially when walking downhill. The other spot was the joint that connects the small toe to the main foot. Neither of them were properly set and immobilized at the time of injury so they didn't heal properly. Now about all they can do is give me cortisone injections in the foot.

You may have an unknown old injury that is acting up. If that is what it is, a cortisone injection is miraculous.

@nononono,
Sorry man, but you will need to see a doctor, if it is indeed plantar fasceitis it will not be relieved easily. Conservative measurment won´t be enough. Every patients evolves different you may read on the net people that with massages obtained good outcomes but those are the least.

Better to take the geenral advise... do an appointment with an specialist. Podiatrist as B-fly said will be fine.

It hurts literally ALL the time. Including right when I wake up.

I've always worn my shoes in this manner. These shoes have a whole lot of wear left in them. I have two jobs (three kind of), one where I sit in a chair and work with computers, and the other I've mentioned here is at a liquor store. The liquor store job is the one where I'm on my feet, but I only work that job 3 days per week (the shifts are about 6-7 hrs).

This is good advice. I will try this.

This is what I'm worried about. I would think that something broken would feel different though. I'm no doctor, but this feels like it's in the muscle tissue.

Thanks for the feedback.

I appreciate the feedback from everyone.

I'm going to try a couple different things including some mentioned here. If it doesn't get better within a week or so, I'll make an appointment. (Being trepidatious because I can't afford a big medical bill right now.)

Fingers crossed.
