I am a married female 49 years old and a teacher by profession, I have extreme pain in particular at the bottom of my foot heal (both feet but more painfull in right foot). Particularly when I get up in the morning in fact any time I get up, I can hardly walk. The pain decreases enough for me to go to school but coming back in the afternoon after been on my feet the whole moring, my feet, in paticular the heal (underneath) are VERY and continually painfull.
I have a very high foot bridge. Wearing a shoe with a heal 4cm plus, transfers the pain to the front of the foot (ball underneath the toes). Wearing flat heal shoes causes the pain to be in the heal and on the side of the heal. I dont partake in sport and never did.
I have used gout tablets without any effect. I massage my feet at night with Deep Heat which relieves the pain somewhat for the moment.
