    This is my first time writing and I thought maybe someone could help with my question. I've had fibromyalgia for a few years, but have never had pain in my feet like I do now. Just wondering if that's what it's from or from something else. Thanks

    Hi there .. is it actual pain or burning ? .. I have burning soles at times .. but I find the amitriptilyne really helps with that .. I would make sure to ask about it in any case the next time you see your doctor.

    I have pain in my feet sometimes when I get up. Always in the morning and sometimes during the day when I have been sitting.

    I describe it as feeling like my skin has shrunk while I am off my feet and it has to stretch back out when I stand up.

    I would say it's probably related to FM. I seem to do ok until I start to walk alot at the mall, or a flea market, or something like that. I don't seem to have that problem just around home or my office.

    Sometimes my feet will start to hurt, and kind of cramp so bad I don't think I'll make it back to my car!!

    Even if I wear comfortable shoes, it still happens.

    I went to the Home Depot one day, and went clear to the back of the store for something. I swear I didn't think I could get back out of the store for the pain. I would walk a little ways, and stop, and act like I was looking at something, then start up again.!!!

    I have a great deal of pain in my feet - so much so, that I had to get "special shoes" - the kind they prescribe for diabetics, but I couldn't tell you if it's from my Fibro, or not, because I'm also an Arthritis & Diffuse Systemic Scleroderma patient......

    But I do sympathize with you on the foot pain........

    Love, Donna

    foot structure that a lot of us Fibros have. Can't remember the name right now - maybe Morton? I don't know if that is why or the Fibro is just finding another place to land. And I have size 11s - more space to hurt, right? :)

    One of the first places that began to hurt was my feet. Right now they burn, burn, burn. I have on good sandals and they hurt. I wear kneehighs and they hurt. I wear my walking shoes and the ankle ribs even hurt by feet - I can feel every rib.

    I do soak them in the tub when I take a shower. I use DH bath stool and I close the drain and let it fill.

    I wear a size 11 too (M) and I end up spending a fortune for the very few pairs of shoes I h ave.


    Gentle Hugs and soothing feet!!

    Even after laying down for awhile or getting up in the mornings...

    When my feet first hit the floor and I begin to walk it feels like im walking on pins and needles.

    Also if I do walk or stand for to long the bottom of my feet begin to burn....had a huge problem with that last week while on vacation...

    yup - foot pain is the first symptom i had. In the last half a month it's been getting much better. makes sense that we would feel a lot of pain in our feet because of all the weight on them. basically, we're tender in a lot of places, but the ones that carry the most weight or stress like our feet and back tend to be worse.

    Yes, generally in the morning. That is when I do my daily walking. I have noticed it helps once I begin to move around more.

    (the pun is incidental). Finally found out it's a detox reaction and there are ways to ease and speed it up.

    I've had FM/CFS for six years now and my feet have been a constant problem. I find that if I keep wiggling them (gentle movement) and rub them together throughout the night, then I manage to get some sleep. I also kee sorboline cream (any moisturiser will do) by my bed and apply it liberally before I go to sleep and this seems to sooth them. They will often feel hot and burning yet my feet will actually be cold (weird I know)Isometimes also have to hang them out from under the doona to try and cool them down.

    I was told at some point this was a part of Restless Leg Syndrome but I've never actually had it checked out and I guess I've always thought it was just one of those extra little burdens that come along with Fibro/CFS so I'd be interested to know if you find a solution.
