  • Could it be due to plantar faciitis or a ganglion I wonder?

  • I agree with you that it could be plantar fasciitis, I currently have this in my left foot. It is very painful - this is the third time I have had this.

  • Hi joed I have this a lot & had for years on & off, I've had it so bad on occasion I've had to hang it outside of bed because can't stand cover being on it, cold flannel hanging over it. It feels like a tight band pressing on top bone, so i know exactly how you feel. As you say, it's hard to walk. But I also have nerve damage & arthritis as well as Fibro, so i always put it down to a bit of both. I only usually get for a few days & then it's onto the next thing lol the joys..

    Soak in hot water & then a very gentle rub with lotion eases it a bit but like you, when it gets like that, nothing much stops it hurting tbh. Have you got a pain gel, I use movelat cream & that helps a bit too.

  • Try adding some Epsom salts to the foot bath😃

  • Also can try magnesium oil and/or magnesium tablets.

  • I have had this for some time now , I also have plantar fascia to really quite painful ,

  • Hi Joed

    I have this pain too, I didn't know it was one of the trigger points, I was wondering if it was rheumatoid arthritis?. It has started to interfere with my walking, even though I have really good support shoes and recently bought arch supports to see if they help, I think they do a little.

    I also use biofreeze and have magnesium oil spray. I find d soaking in Himalayan/Epsom salt helps. My foot has recently started tingling too along bottom of foot,which is a weird feeling.

    Hoping you find something which works for you soon.


  • There are some online videos advising on treatment and exercises for plantar faciitis.

  • Hi joed

    I really am so genuinely sorry to read this my friend, and I also think it may be plantar fasciitis? I have pasted below an excerpt form the WebMD cache on this issue:

    *What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?

    *The symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

    Pain in the bottom of your foot, especially at the front or centre of the heel bone

    Pain that is worse when first rising in the morning (called "first-step pain"), when first standing up after any long period of sitting, or after increased levels of activity especially in non-supportive shoes

    I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Hmmmmm. My neighbour - who also has Fibro, described a similar pain in her left foot last year. It turned out to be GOUT!!!! It still comes and goes - she's on NSAIDs and swears by Apple Cider Vinegar.

  • I have fibromyalgia and I have pain in my feet it varies with pain and I have been told I have artritus in them by the hospital

  • I also had this on the top of my left foot, i now have hospital prescribed insoles, they took a mould of my feet and the difference is amazing, the pain went days after starting to use them in all my shoes and slippers

  • Hi,I also suffer with very bad pain in both feet,the top of my feet ,and my big toes,had ex rays last week,but the doc says it's another symptom of fibro,plus osteoarthritis.
