Foot pain
Hi there,

My feet are incredibly painful - all over, top, bottom, sides but especially underneath, so much do that I''m battling to walk on them, despite wearing healthy and comfortable shoes.

I am only 39 but I have Reiters syndrome, which causes a lot if pain in my joints especially my feet.

Nothing works for it, and pain killers offer only a few hours relief so it''s really not worth using anything. I am very active and my extremely painful feet are making me negative and emotional.

Any suggestions would be great...
