I’ve been experiencing general foot pain all over but mainly I’ve had sharp pain in my toes (mostly in the third & fourth but I’ve experienced big toe and second toe pain as well). I also feel pain in my ball-of-foot near my toes, especially when barefoot. I also experience burning and numbness in the arch. And I’ve had sharp pain at the top of my foot as well (forefoot & midfoot).
Further, I’ve been experiencing lower back pain and sharp tailbone pain (my joints sometimes feel like they are pulling away from each other there) that I suspect may be related to my foot issues. Aetrex shoes alleviate the pain when walking but I was wondering if there’s anything I can do to regain foot health to wear I can function without orthotic shoes. I know I have extremely high arches as I’ve had my feet examined before. Is there anything I can do to alleviate the discomforts associated with this particular foot type besides wearing healthy shoes?
Thank you for your help!
