Step on some LEGOS and simulate the pain. 

 

Just got to experience it last week, wear good shoes and do proper streches to keep your body in alignment (hips, thighs, calfs and feet). Once you get it, it takes a long time to shake it off.

Stepping on LEGOs is a pretty intense experience alright!

 

And so is plantar fasciitis on both feet.   Got the first instance when I walked some 12 plus miles one evening in brand new shoes without breaking them in first.  My foot suffered from that condition for about a year and then, while wearing another new pair of shoes, I developed it on the other foot because I was walking a good long distance and trying to accommodate for the first condition.   Thus I was quite hobbled for over 3 weeks (couldn't walk barefoot at all) and both feet suffered off and on until I got some good off the shelf inserts, a quality walking shoe and adjusted my walking pace to being much slower so my feet would heel.  Took about 7 more months so it was no joke.

 

Btw, my experience is that stepping on LEGOs is a very painful near-puncture like feeling.  Plantar fasciitis was kind of the opposite in that it felt like hooks were in my heels pulling the flesh off the heel bone.   And that feeling was every day while sitting, standing, or laying down and at times quite random.

That is all cause you have flat feet. Get some good Dr Scholl insoles. There is a machine in most of stores that tells you which to get. I stand on work a lot and it helps.

Think what did it for me was 13 hours on my feet moving around in circles (the last 8 with no break) then two days later 6 hours straight with no break. Reminds me of the time I stepped on a nail as a kid, pain is in the middle of the arch. 

 

Ice is your friend.

No flat feet, I did the machine scan for insoles (they cost $70) and I have set up an appointment with a podiatrist.

Stepping on anything is amazingly painful.  Stepping on an extension cord, or even a transition molding on the floor feels like an electric shock through the body.

Get one of these. Had the same pain for months. Two days of using this in the a.m. and p.m. or when pain is bad got rid of it. Haven't had a problem since.

Had to get them cut out of the arch in my left foot twice, once the size of a marble and once the size of a golf ball, they definatly suck.

J/K, guys. 

 

Take care of your feet, there's nothing more miserable than being in pain all day just from walking around.

A frozen water bottle (pour a little out before throwing in the freezer) is great for rolling your arch on.  Ice and stretching in one.  I ended up with an orthotic boot that kept my foot in a slightly flexed position to keep the plantar surface stretched while I slept.  Two nights and the pain was 80% gone.  10 days of sleeping in that and the pain was completely gone.

I keep one of those marble rolling pins under my desk for rolling my arches throughout the day. The stone stays relatively cool during the day when it's not convenient to switch ice bottles. (The marble can also be frozen from some extra kick.)

At some point in the late 1960s I developed a pain in my right foot behind my toe next to my big toe but our family doctor could not find anything wrong so I just had to live with it. To alleviate the pain I walked with my foot slightly angled out to the right and the inside edge of the foot tilted upward. In 1975 I decided to see a podiatrist who discovered the bone behind that toe was bent downward so simple surgery fixed the pain problem but to this day my foot still angles to the right instead of pointing straight ahead which is probably why my right knee is a problem and I have a problem with my right hip but I don't know if my foot problem led to that. I can't sleep anymore on my right side otherwise I wake up with a painful right hip and right shoulder but a couple of days ago I did wake up laying on my right side and can now add a painful right jaw and tooth to the list. Cut the right side of my body off and I'd be fine.

 

I have another problem with my right foot that started several years ago. I can be walking on a flat surface when all of sudden it's like I stepped on a lego. It feels like something snaps towards the front of my foot then over several hours it travels back to my heel then up into my ankle then the right left side of the foot goes numb. After that it take a few hours for the numbness to go away but the foot is still painful for a couple of days.

Diagnoisis: Myositis 

 

Turned out it was only a muscle on the bottom of the foot that got twisted then inflamed (has to do with stopping sideways so it tends to try and bend the foot sideways towards the outside edge).  I do qualify for orthotics on my insurance plan so I am going to try them out.
