When I first got fibro, I could not even take a shower, because the water beating down on my feet hurt too bad! I switched to comfortable shoes, would soak in a warm bath, and let time pass and the horrible pain finally went away. I still get pain in my feet on and off- but mine is more numbness now. Wish I could offer more advice-
I have: Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, food allergies, depression, TMJ, anxiety
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren

So, I went to Target and looked for arnica and emu oil and some other stuff. Must go to the vitamin store for malic acid. Earth shoes were mostly sandals, so I am going to wait. They are about as comfortable as my Pr!vos, but less expensive.
The pharmacist told me not to use arnica on my feet. When I asked why, she shrugged and said, "I guess I never thought of it." That answer was not satisfactory to me, so I pressed. She said your feet could hurt for a variety of reasons blah blah blah, so I told her I had fibro. She became nicer and said that the feet sweat and the med could get in my feet deeper and become toxic. The other stuff . . . um votaren, is prescription. I should talk to my doc about meds cuz there is new stuff out for fibro, etc. I left without the arnica and a little cranky at the pharmacist.
Did get a tennis ball and epsom salts and have been wearing shoes.
Sherrine, did your endurance increase, too? Is it possible that I could walk through disneyland without a wheelchair? We are going in May. 1st Las Vegas, 2nd Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam, 3rd, Disneyland. Then again, maybe by Disneyland, I will need the chair. I guess no one will know til we try it.
