It feels like my foot is literally splitting open from the end of the heel (right before the arch begins) to the point that the arch ends.
It feels this way no matter what I am doing (standing, sitting or lying down) Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night with this intense pain.
Soaking my foot doesn't help, no over the counter meds help.
I just endure the pain.
My job requires me to be on my feet constantly for 6-8 hours a day.
No... I have not been to see a doctor about it. I have no health insurance and I haven't found a doctor in this community that I live in that actually wants to listen to what I am saying. They seem to have "selective hearing" and I'm really not interested in going through x-rays that, I'm sure, aren't going to reveal the problem.
