In the space of 20 mins I can get up and its like bone on bone in both feet and they are like grinding together when I walk.  It tends to go quickly but although I was told it was gout it doesnt seem so because it can come and go so quickly so I have yet another thing to put down to the fibro.  Half the things that happen to me I dont even mention to the doctor because there are so many and they are so bizare.  Do others have probs in feet

So far Suez I haven't had a great deal of problems with my feet. Burning on bottom is about all. I know some do have a lot of problems and have found different shoes that help.
 
I have seen people with gout and if you get it you will know it cause it is very painful and doesn't come and go like that.

I have problems with my feet, but it doesn't come and go that quickly. I have plantar fastitis (sp) and it's worse in the mornign, or after sitting. I hope you find relief soon :(

Don't know what's wrong, can't fix it, doctors are so sloooow!!!

Hi Suez,
 
I have the same thing with my ankles and wrists.  Like they will literally shatter.  It comes unannounced, and it's unpredictable how long it will last.  I see you have arthritis, I have Rhuematoid Arthritis and this is a common symptom of it. I hope it doesnt last long with you.

I had plantar's faciitis but it's gone now that I wear Birkenstocks.
 
I have had a problem of swelling in my toes.  It only happens in the summer and it can be quite painful.  Of course my doctor says it's gout, but I believe it's fibro.  We get a lot of rain and storms where I live in the summer.  It will totally go away in the fall and won't be back until next summer.  I don't think gout keeps a time schedule, do you?  wink

I have just recently started having alot of problems with my feet, I do have bunions and arthritis in them but this is different. My one foot feels like the tendons are being stretched until they will tear, I'm guessing my is fibro too, I haven't mentioned it to the doctor yet, like you they sometimes think it's something other than fibro too, I thought gout also, but will wait a little while and see if it's part of a fibro flare up. Good luck, I do understand and barefoot seems to be worse than wearing shoes. My shoes have orthodics in them from foot specialist. Hope someone can give you some answers.

No No I have pain in my feet from the fibro. It is the worse in my feet and it feels like the bones are broken. I know exactly what you mean, Sue. The lyrica does help and the percocet too. I have a little arthritis that has developed in my fingers in my left hand, but I truly believe the feet pain is from the fibro only.

Thanks for bringing up this topic. I don't feel alone now.

yeah  Thanks to you all for the replies, im always worried it will stay at  o for replies , its nice to get them. Special hello to new member Yoga ,like you , you never know wether its the  fibro or what with anything, its makes it difficult,  special than to Lindaloo you sound like you have exact same problem. It hurts... and I walk like a penguin. I think its like gout but I think its the fibro.  It looks like alot of people have probs with feet in diff ways.  The feet must be a sensative area.  I get swelling in hands and feet also. Who knows, All the ningly things on top of the main things it sounds rediculous to metion to doc.  To all have nice day. :-) :-) :-)

I know what ya'll mean! When I have flare ups, it's always been different. Like last time, I hurt in all my joints. This time, my arms and legs are going numb and then I have that heel pain. It feels like the bone is going to come through the skin. My chiro said it is not bone spurs, but didn't say what it was. I notice when I where tight shoes, it hurts more. So on a bad day, I will wear my flip flops that I bought 1/2 size too big. It helps some.
 
I know what you mean about telling the dr all the "silly & crazy" things we feel. I try to stick to only the things that is causing me the most problem and the heel pain isn't on that list LOL. I feel like he will think I am nuts if I were to tell him ALL my aches and pains.

I know that pain in the feet. I step on the floor in the morning and each step is like walking on a bed of nails...the pain is awful. Takes a few minutes to be able to walk.

I agree about sharing everything with doc. I do know my doc believes what I tell him and he's very up on fibro, but I feel like I'd come across as a total lunatic if I went on about all of the pains.

Hi Sue2z! I've had problems with my feet for years too but not the kind of excrutiating-sounding pains you describe. The bottoms of my feet feel like I'm walking on fire or that they are actually on fire if I'm reclining or lying down. My rheumy says it is neuropathy but isn't really sure if it's related to my fibro/cfs because of the intensity and lack of response to meds. However, all men's socks are like some kind of medieval foot torture to me so I have to wear ladies trouser socks/knee highs for relief. It seems that the thinner the material, the less the burning and I'm all for relief no matter what!

On a side note, I have been asked outright by 2 people here at work, 1 male and 1 female, if I was wearing PANTYHOSE!!!! The sheerness of the material made these ankle starers "curious". After I picked up my bruised pride, ego and jaw from the floor I explained to them that they were special neuropathy-related relief socks. Once I explained what neuropathy was they seemed satisfied that I wasn't seeking a sex-change and that this was part of my "therapy". Can you believe the outlandish boldness of some people? (LOL) Anyway, my wife and I both make sure that I have opaque or patterned styles that won't attract the attention of the "ankle starers". I've also realized that I don't give a flippin' rat's **s what others think anyway.....relief and comfort come first. (Besides, the trouser socks/knee highs fit better anyway.....they stay up and don't "droop" like men's socks!)

Gentlest of hugs,
John

Hi Sue2z:  I can relate! My feet often feel like the skin on the bottom of my feet has worn down to the bone! I found some THICK insoles (memory foam) from DREAM PRODUCTS (DreamProductsCatalog.com) (paper catalog available) (800)410-2153. Also intend to try their air pocket insoles, 35 degrees belowsocks, and titanium socks. Warmth helps me.    I soak my feet in warm water and sit for a few minuted in microwaved slippers. Hope to get microwavable socks. The heated battery ones are heavy with the batteries. In a pinch I direct a warm hairdryer on my feet if they are stiff.  I have a bath mat folded over with a folded light blanket inside to stand on when doing dishes. Still seeking more comfy footwear. I live in MN with drastic weather changes, so that doesn't help. Hope to find more solutions. Good luck/God bless

I have the burning and aching in my feet as well. I limp for the first 10 steps or so, then it loosens up. It's fibro for me they decided after checking for everything else under the sun.

Also, when they are aching really bad, I'll have a bunch of twitching going on along the inside bottom of one foot after I sit down. It's enough to drive a person to drink! I always have my biggest flare ups in the summer. The hotter it gets, the worse the stiffness and pain gets. The only upside is that the soreness in my feet keeps me from "over shopping". Hehehehe

If you are having heel pain you may have plantar faciitis.  This is a symptom of fibromyalgia.  I had that and started wearing Birkenstock sandals and it eventually went away and I have no more pain.  We had this discussion last month on the forum but we have so many newbies that I will post that thread here and also bump it up.  Hope this helps.

My feet hurt so bad I couldnt walk..the Dr. put me on CYMBALTA and it was a miracle drug for me...I can now walk and work.....Fibro has a lot of systems...Trust me I have had it 20 years. And was going for disability till I went on CYMBALTA.

Do you remember the movie Lorenzo's Oil??? This is a calling to cure this elusive destructive disease being called fibromyalgia. And in finding this cure a host of other diseases will be cured!
I am amazed by the repeated mistakes by doctors and all of us perhaps...My sister has suffered with fibromyalgia for many years...I was telling her it is time we became scientists...take the lead in curing this. Someday, someone or group will have these answers....The amount of information out there is astounding...It feels like each person with fibromyalgia is learning the full scope of the disease process all on their own....doctors are so overwhelmed today....Too many times there have been claims by doctors that they treat fibromyalgia....and then the lack of their knowledge is so loud...I am not throwing stones...well, at least I don't think that would help anyone...
Gout is diagnosed with a blood test....high uric acid equals gout, it causes swelling and redness at the sight...I am no doctor....my sister just started with the "broken foot" part of fibromyalgia. I am about to look up Garth Nicholson....and his research around fibromyalgia.
Get a hard copy of all of the blood tests and any other tests, you have had in the last year. Maybe, if you want to start your book of research....

Hi, Sue2z,

My first symtoms were in my feet. The hurt so badly I could barely walk. We were out of town for a weekend. It was raining cats and dogs, and I was supposed to be attending a meeting with my husband. I went to the car and just laid the car seat back and prayed for the pain to go away.

Since I have been on medication, my feet have been better. I still have sharp pains in my feet and toes from time to time, but they don't burn anymore and they are generally much better.

Cold, damp weather seems to make them flare.

So sorry you are having so much pain. Have you talked to your doctor about your feet problems?

Peace,
