Pain in both feet. Can't walk unless have shoes on. Any help or remedies to ease the pain. Does it sound like neuropathy?

orthofeet have really good arch support but since I have a super high arch and work 13-14 hour shifts on my feet I still have to use my orthotic insoles and these shoes accommodate them well because of the wide toe bed. Customer service is outstanding. They are quick to reply to any questions via email, extremely friendly and helpful and know which shoe is right for you. And the return process is easy and cost free so there is no risk in trying these shoes. If you try them you will love them.

Whats your BS at when you feel the pain the most ?
This is how you can help it
Have a very sexy frend /spouse come over every day to rub your feet and legs
It may not help but it will take your mined off of it lol lol
Sorry I had to let it out
I do spend 10 min on each foot rubbing them to help keep the blood moving
Best wishes

Howdy Tamara.

I have diabetes related neuropathy. My feet have a burning sensation from my knees through the tips of my toes. If it is both feet equally it is most likely diabetes related neuropathy. I also have tingling neuropathy from my elbows to the tips of my fingers. (making my typing rather clumsy). There are also other foot pains a person with diabetes may have, but I think it is most likely diabetes related neuropathy.

My Drs have prescribed Gabepentin/Neurontin which didn't help me at all. My most recent Rx was Nortryptelene, which didn't seem to help either. Some others have gotten relief from Cymbalta. I am taking Alpha Lipolic Acid 600 mg x 3 times per day. I support that with 5000 mcg of Biotin, and Benfotamine, a synthetic B vitamin. I have noted a little lessening of the pain, but not complete elimination of the pain.

I am sure others have other stories and some have reported successes with eliminating the pain. One has to check out and determine what works for them.

Praying for your much improved health and God's richest blessings to you and yours!


PS: you are not supposed to walk barefooted when you have diabetes anyway. Too much chance of getting a cut and possibly getting an infection.
