Foot Pain


I am a gout patient. My family has diabetic. I have flat feet. Since I worked at a pizza shop kitchen two months ago, I felt foot pain everyday. It comes stronger and stronger. First, I thought that it was gout. After 2 week, I think it might be something else, since it lasted more than 2 weeks. Gout does not last so long. Second, I thought that it was flat feet. I bought an arch support insole. It still does not work. Usually, the arch support should reduce the pain. Last Friday, my foot was so painful that I could not stand up could not walk at all. I went to hospital and did examination. Doctors took X-Ray and blood test and said your bone is not broken and blood test result is normal. Your foot is neighter gout nor diabetic. I do not have any idea which will cause the foot so painful. I really appreciate you could give me some suggestions or directions to figure what happens to my foot.
Thanks again.

  1. Your foot pain might be biomechanical. This means the way your foot is put together is not ideal. You might be better off seeing a podiatrist who might make you a custom made arch support (orthotic) that will help control your feet and give better support.Good luck
