Hi Sherry...I've had that since I was a teenager...and yep, the pain is horrific. Have you recently changed to sandals?
I get it when I've been a bit more active and my feet/legs are overworked.
It could be the 6MP as well...I have a friend who had horrific pains from Imuran..so, possible for you too...but since it's just started, it could be simply myofacial pain.
You could ask your husband for a foot massage , massage them yourself and do some exercises to loosen them.
You could try this to stretch the toe muscles....put those toe separators on and then scrunch your toes like clenching. It'll hurt like crazy...but eventually will start to relax.
Oh...walking with those things on are a killer....but in a good kind of way. Your toes will look creepy when you take them off, however...unless your toes are creepy to start with, then it's hopeless for them to improve. bwahahahaaaaaaaaaa!!!
You might also need some support in your shoes. Do your feet have high arches? Do you wear any supports in your shoes already?
supportive sandals? Some brands have nice arch support in them (no, not fogy kind either).
