As we get older we lose cushion in the bottoms of our feet. This can cause all sorts of pain and should be expected. For women especially this is true if "stylish" shoes were worn in younger years.

Just now joining this thread. As a previous poster mentioned, turmeric may be supportive in arthritis management and support a healthy inflammation response!

You could try acupuncture and/or chiropractic adjustments. If you can find a practitioner that is good, both should make a difference in your foot pain. (I'd go to the Chiro first.) //// My podiatrist wanted to give me an injection, and I wouldn't allow him to do that. HOWEVER, he did recommend some shoes (that cost about $130 in my area) that are absolutely WONDERFUL -- the problem is that they are SO ugly -- but I've seen women, in good clothes, wear them to church! LOL Seriously.
Secondly, he sent me to physical therapy to correct my way of walking, and the PT did wonders too. //// The shoes are Brooks Cascadia, and you can get them in almost any sporting goods store. I bought two pair, and I wear them all the time -- sometimes even to bed at night. LOLOLOL I wore SAS shoes for almost 15 years -- but these Brooks are even much better than SAS.

My husband and I never had feet problems but after living on a concrete foundation in our previous home for so many years we both suffer from plantar fasciitis. Neither of us can go barefoot in the house anymore. We both wear Crocs in the house because of the cushioning.

I still have fat pads, but because of how my toes are lifting up the fat pad is moving forward where it no longer fully protects my metatarsal heads. Hence. metatarsal pain.

I get foot pain as well. I've found that it's worth it to go spend a bit more on super comfortable shoes. I like to walk and I now own two pairs of Hoka brand tennis shoes. Love em very much and they have made a difference.
