    RE: Fibromyalgia

    I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2009 . And I've dealt with the chronic pain and stiffness , plus I deal with depression and I've had trouble with alcohol in the past. .... I do take meds, which help a little ...I think...but at this point I'm not sure.......for the past several months now my feet have been hurting me. I told my doctor and she did and x-ray, which showed nothing wrong. But my feet continue to hurt, sometimes so bad I struggle to walk......I wish that I had the answer, but I do not . I'm just getting more depressed. Hoping and praying ....looking for answers........God Bless Us

        An x-ray I believe will show if there are broken bones. Get an MRI done and see if you have torn ligaments or tendons. Did you mess it up by chance? If not go to a podiatrist and get checked for plantar fasciitis. That's what I have, pain in the mornings and pain and stiffness if I sit for more than 10 mins. I have to walk around for a bit to loosen both my feet, all day every day. Anyways for plantar you can get shoe inserts and do foot exercises to loosen them up. Hope that helps a tad, it sucks to have painful feet.

        Yes, I have the same symptom, there is nothing you can do about it. It is the progression of the disease.

    Yes, I have had fibro for 25 years. Over the past year it has given me the same symptoms in my legs and feet that you describe. The pain is now constant.

    I too have burning feet that prevent sleep. I use
    Plantlife Relieve Arnica Relief Oil (smells like ben gay but it is 40% Arnica oil) and I wear Hoka One One sneakers. They have varying degrees of cushion depending upon the style.
