hate my feet

I have plantar fasciitis which causes heel pain in spite of the stretches that I do. I also have been dealing with a stress fracture in my right foot for 6 months and it is still not completely healed. I have a vitamin d deficiency. I also have morton’s neuroma in my left foot. Been getting shots for the neuroma for approx. 2 1/2 months. I had to stand on the train home and it is now feeling worse. I walk from the train station to work (appox. 10 minutes) and when I get to work, I have to take off my socks and shoes because they are so hot they feel like they will burst into flames. The bottom of my feet are red from this short walk. I have been to 4 doctors for my hot feet and no one know what the problem is or what to do about it. I am so tired of the pain in my feet. I am under doctors care for the stress fracture and the neuroma but I still can’t get rid of the pain.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Sorry to hear that you are experiencing foot pain. If you have been under care for both the stress fracture and the neuroma and do not have any improvement then I suggest getting a second opinion.

    If your stress fractures have persisted for 6 months then I would begin looking at a bone stimulator to assist in the healing, as well as getting more immobilized in possibly a camwalker. As far as the neuroma, if you have been getting injections for over 2 months and have no improvements, then I would also look at other options. Have you been getting steroid injections or alcohol injections?

    If you have not advanced to alcohol or sclerosing injections then I would switch to this type of injection. If you have been doing the sclerosing injections and still have pain then it may be worth exploring the radiofrequency ablation or surgical options.

    I hope this helps!
