Re: [IP] Pain in my foot



While we're on this subject...

For a few months now I have been having just an all-over pain in my feet. At
first thought it was shoes, but no matter what I wear they hurt. In the
morning they feel ok, but as the day goes on the pain gets worse. I don't do
a lot of walking (lately).  Is this symtoms of neoropathy?
