  • I have awful feet pain and i sleep with a special pillow because my ankle swells up because of celulitus last yr and i now get severe pain in my heels ,its stopping me walking and standing for to long i only wear decent shoes but even this does not help its horrible

  • I too have horrible foot pain at the end of a work day my ankles are swollen and the bottoms of my feet hurt so bad I just want to sit with my feet up. It takes the rest of the evening for my feet to stop hurting. I have found that ice on my low back can give me some relief. My feet are also so cold especially at night I have to use a heating pad to warm them up. They are also especially sensitive to touch. I wear super soft socks but by the end of the day I can’t stand them either. I am going to try the soaking in epson salts.

  • I have fibro, and severe pain in my legs and feet, I am looking for a more natural way to alleviate the pain, especially in my feet I can hardly walk for at least the first 5 or 10 min after first standing up, I want to know did you try the Epsom salt, did it work?

  • I suffer with terrible pain in my legs and feet too, my ankles stiffen, my feet swell up and my toes cramp badly. I find it helps to keep my feet moving – I extend my legs in front of me, rotate my ankles, and stretch out and wiggle my toes a hell of a lot, and it eases the pain, also helping the agonising stiffness I get when I first stand up. My partner rubs my feet too, which is wonderful!
