I have a very sore left foot. It hurts on the bottom of my foot and on the top of my foot. I do have plantar fascititis as diagnosed by a foot doctor. I just need to know what I can do about the pain. Any suggestions?

Your description is very vague, and an accurate diagnosis can be made probably only by a physical examination.  How long have you had the pain?  A temporary course of NSAIDs taken regularly (ex. ibuprofen 600mg 3x a day with food for two weeks) may help and prevent a trip to the doc.  Check for medication interactions before starting anything new.

HI! There are shooting like pin pricking pains on the bottom of my left foot and the top gets sore to the touch.This usually happens when Ive been on my feet for hours at work. There have been times that it just gets this way. I have fibromyalgia and a degenerative arthritis. I forgot to mention them. I know I'm over weight. The foot doc once told me I was tearing the fibers in my foot,he wrapped it cuz it was bleeding on the inside and I had inserts made after he had the molds of my feet made. They helped for awhile but then my foot started hurting in other places. I was on an anti inflammatory-Daypro for years . An Arthritis Specialist put me on that medication , then, my DO took me off that. I gwt shin splints and leg cramps too.
Thanks for answering my problem.

Your problem sounds very complicated and could just be related to your fibromyalgia.  It is very important to make sure that disease is controlled first.  Many women have fibromyalgia complaints in their feet.  Good luck!
