Pain In The Bottom Of My Feet- Owwww

7 posts in this topic

This might be kind of random, but...

The past month or so I've been having hideous stabbing pain in the bottoms of my feet!!! It's right where the back of the arch meets the beginning of my heel, in both feet, but much worse in the right.

Does anybody know what the heck this is??? It's gotten so bad, it makes me walk funny. My right foot now hurts even when I'm off my feet! :(

I had a problem quite similar to that for a while, and it was so bad that I would have ended up not being able to walk at all.

When I got custom orthotics it really helped. My feet aren't 100% better, but most of the time about 90%.

You may want to see an orthopedic surgeon, or a chiropractor (mine does custom orthotics) to have it checked out.

Sarah,

When I was at my sickest with Celiac, I lost a great deal of weight. Much of the cushion I had on my arse and the cushion I had on the bottom of my feet was gone. I have gained my weight back, but my feet still have no padding, so in the evenings my feet hurt and it can be painful and my legs ache.

I don't know if this is your situation, but as Ursa said, it might be good to talk to someone. It also might be strain on your foot legiments.

Hope you resolve it soon.

Could it be plantar fasciatis? It is EXTREMELY common. I see a lot of different women where I work and I would venture to say that over half of them have plantar fasciatis. My mom has it too. You need to invest in a good pair of tennis shoes and some orthotics. And avoid any sort of direct impact to the arch/bottom of your foot, ie marching type movements.

Actually I do have exactly the same problem, and fo me too it started from my right foot......First time I had that, was the day after I had a big amount of gluten by accident. And it started together with a funny feeling o tingling on my toes. The tingling stopped but the pain didn't. It just got better. I am visiting my doctor again in 15 days so if I have any news about that, I will let you know. But the whole situation makes me think it is from gluten. It feels like that part of me foot is extremely sensitive to pressure. The pain is there only when I am walking or I am standing, not when I am sitting.

It is annoying....

I had similar pains, but got much worse. Once I started with B12 and magnesium, it resolved completely in a matter of weeks. Both are essential for muscle and nerve function, so it makes sense. Just make sure the B12 is a methylcobalamin sublingual. I do think the magnesium was the more important thing in my case, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's the other way around for someone else.

Anyway, I hope that helps!

Could it be plantar fasciatis?

It sounds just like it! I suffered for years, saw an orthopedic surgeon and had special arch inserts made to put in my shoes and haven't had a problem since. I was at Target yesterday and they have an orthodic I've never seen before. It was about $20, and it had removable arch inserts you can customize for your feet. I've seen similar products offered on TV for a lot more $$ and the medical orthodics usually run in the hundred's of $$, so I bought these to try too. I'll let you know how they work.

    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
    • I agree JMG, in fact I've never bothered with the prescription because I hoped by not having it I'd be saving the NHS some money.  I imagine this will put a burden on some people though. I can't say I've found a gluten free bread I really like yet in the UK, though, although there was a loaf at a wedding the other day that was as near to the real thing as I have tasted in years - but it wasn't clear where it came from (which is a bit of a worry, perhaps it was real bread after all!).   Do you have a favourite? I think Genius is probably my favourite, best toasted, but M&S produce a seeded loaf that actually  is so convincing that when my sister made a batch of cheese and pickle sarnies with it no-one noticed! I think the seeds were a distraction. I had some amazing artisan gluten-free focaccia once but no idea where that came from either - probably the real thing too! No wonder I've got 'gastritis'! I have considered buying a bread making machine but not because I'd make bread with it - what I really miss is those iced currant buns with cherries on the top.  
    • You have the best sense of humor! 
    • Hello folks.   I don't really know what to say, really. My anxiety is really up and down and I just feel a little ... Lost at the minute.   Well, here goes. I should be almost 2 months gluten free but I'm not, as a rice drink I was drinking was glutening me. Yeah, that annoyed me and messed me up a but. Well, lesson learned.  I'm coming up to just over two weeks gluten free but since being "gluten light," and now completely free, the weight just keeps coming off and its a bit concerning (although it does seem like its tapering off.) I only eat whole foods now that I prepare myself as I have a lot of other intolerances  - the usual suspects soy/egg/diary/corn - I also cannot handle fat well. I have seen some improvement, my BM are no longer pale and floating although I still have constipation. My headaches seem to have also cleared, which is a plus. Still fighting the fatigue though. Up and down days it seems, and my pharmacy doesn't have any folic acid which I am low in without lactose! They offered me a liquid solution chocked full of parabens, not too keen on it if I'm honest. The things I'm worrying about is the weight loss, and lingering nausea which comes and goes, and often swings between nausea and being ravenously hungry. I know this is a journey, has anyone else had a similar experience to mine? Also my personal products are all safe. Oh I'm a dude by the way. 26 from the U.K   Sorry for the ramble. Happy healing to everybody   R  
    • What you can do is get follow-up testing.  This might help in determining if you are gluten-free diet compliant.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
