We had a discussion a few months ago about wearing tiny heels and many said they had problem even wearing those. I had plantar faciitis sooo bad that I needed a wheelchair to get through an airport. I couldn't walk more than a block, at best. But then I tried the Birkenstocks and they took care of the problem. It wasn't instantly but now my feet are fine. I have given this advice to others. I have a friend that is a travel agent and she accompanies groups on trips all around the world. She was having the same problem with her feet so I told her about the Birkenstocks, she tried them, and now wears them all of the time. It took care of her plantar faciitis, too.
If I were you I would stick with your comfy shoes right now. Also, try to stop freaking out about it. Stress does make the pain of fibromyalgia a lot worse! Your feet will get better. If they still aren't improving, see your doctor and there are things they can do to help you. But, for me, I have found that I can be totally miserable with a problem but if I wait long enough it goes away! I hope you are feeling better soon.
I know exactly what you are going thru with your feet. I have FM also and planter facitis as well. I do not have neuropathy but it feels like I do. The pain and horrible burning are constant. The one thing that has helped me besides stretching my feet, is vitamin Bcomplex.It needs to have B6-100mg inparticular. It has helped. I don't have any other answers but from reading the other replys I'll have to price the Birkenstocks and give them a try. I am really am soooooooo tired of all this. Good Luck to you.
