Sore Feet & Tiredness

I have plantar facitus and my feet are so sore I don't know how I manage to stand on them for as long as I do, I stood on my feet for 3 hours the other night and I could hardly walk in the morning, I have given up zumba for the last few weeks in the hope that my feet will improve but to no avail if anything they are worse. I am also so tired again, I really don't know whats going on with me I feel like an old woman with all these aches and pains. Also a couple of weeks ago I got tonsilitus never felt so rough and it was the first time ive ever had it and I was prescribed antibiotics which cleared it up but I still have a croaky voice im beginning to sound like a man ,its a nightmare my voice has been like this for months and they don't know why first they said I had thrush then I got tonsilitus so maybe it was that all along and not thrush.

I have an appointment to see my endo on the 15th August and then maybe I might get some answers.

I am on 200mcg of Levothyroxine.

Thanks for listening.

I'm glad you are seeing an Endocrinologist and hope he can put you on the road to good health.

It is awful when you have pain all the time, especially walking/moving.

Keep us informed how you get on and what he suggests to help you.

Best wishes


Second time round - I keep losing my replies these days.

Basically I started to say I don't have plantar facitus but my all the little bones in my feet always seemed to ache. Then I bought the Dancing Dolphin meadowsweet shampoo that people on here had been using and at the same time decided to try their meadowsweet foot soak and foot cream. I just can't believe it and it feels really weird but my feet don't ache now! They used to be so achy before too.

When I was first diagnosed with Graves my voice was terrible, one if the things I realised I couldn't do was hit the high - or even the not so high - notes when I was singing along to my Christmas song CD. Now I seem to be on the mend I can - but if you are on 200 mcg levo you are unlikely to be hyper like I was - or maybe it doesn't matter whether you are hyper or hypo and your voice just gets gruff.

Hope your endo can explain all when you see him. Make sure you take a list in with all your questions - if I didn't I know I would forget everything I wanted of ask.

Hi Mummytina, your history says you have PA, how often are you having your injections? Sounds to me like not frequently enough. Hampster x



It sounds like your body is under a lot of stress at the moment and probably you need a really good rest and some pampering for a while. You are probably run down, having tonsillitis suggests that and then antibiotics often make people feel rough for a time, perhaps there is a virus going around as well. Are you under a lot of external stress?



VIONIC SHOES from which they let you try them for 30 days and return has been a life saver for plantar facitus....not all are great so you have to try until you get that perfect pair...I started with the bedroom used to them..they have high arches to support the foot...higher than any on the market....but some of their shoes are better than others....they also send you a coupon if you sign up for email letter which is the only place I have found for a discount on the shoes as this is the only shoe I wear...
