I then saw an advert in the paper for Orhtaheel insoles. It  described exactly what I had and although sceptical I purchased a pair for 22. To my amazement the pain went after a week. I now wear thes


My foot doctor recommended Orthaheels too  O0

Had this when I was in middle school. I complained for about year to my parents that I was in pain when they took me on long walks but they thought I was just moaning!

Evenutally got it diagnosed and told to keep off it for about 2 months while it healed.

Hi Nudge. Thanks for your comments. Much appreciated. A few other friends mentioned orthoheels and I ended up buying some (from Boots) last month. I wear them in my shoes (for work), my trainers (for gym etc) and my walking boots and they are great! I think they have really helped the condition and things are improving now  O0

Orthaheels aren't cheap, but it's worth noting - they come with a 30 day money-back guarantee. If, say after 3 or 4 weeks you see no improvement then you can return them and get a full refund.

I've bought these gel things to help stop the balls of my feet getting sore, they are white, and you attach them to your middle toe with the gel underneath, anyone used them? Do they work?  sometimes the balls of my feet get so sore that every little stone hurts

I got this problem with the balls of my feet and after months of trying different options I found my shoes were too narrow. The problem dissapeared when I used wider shoes, it was unbelievable the difference!!

Bingo! This is exactly what I have just been experiencing and since I have changed to a wider boot, no problem. However, trying to find a wide mountain boot is causing me some bother.

Thats very interesting 'dellwalker' I have been considering getting my feet measured etc.. but in Essex there arent many shops that do that well not that i know of, GoOutDoors just sell you off the shelf. Maybe on my next visit to Betswy Wales that maybe the answer....  It's horrible isnt it! My feet take a few days to recover too.... :(

My heels are fine, its just the balls of my feet, I thought it was because I have soft skin on my feet?

Try and have a look at the thread I started about painful boots. Describes exactly what I was going through.  O0
