I've had bilateral chronic feet pain since 2001. It really started to worsen around 2008-2010 and by 2012 it was simply awful. I won't get into all the in's and out's of my pain here, but of course i've tried EVERYTHING! No test has ever come back showing that anything is wrong! I am healthy otherwise, 38 years old, very active (still). I've never let this stop me. My feet pain is only present when I stand. It is 100% gone when I sit. Instantly gone! It hurts to walk, but absolutely nothing like the pain I feel when I have to stand still. Again, I'm a fighter....I still hiked thru Peru (just brought a trail stool to take breaks). I do all my own grocery shopping and care for my 2 year old all day alone. I learned about TMS in October and read Dr Sarno's books. I live in Chicago and have a doctor here who trained under Sarno who does a 4 week TMS course. I attended that. I journaled, I do visualization, I started therapy to try to uncover where my anger, fear, sadness, etc is coming from? I read Steve O's book. but NOTHING. No improvements. I know focusing on the timeline of when I will be healed is a kiss of death, but it's so hard not to gauge this on a daily basis. I also know that everyone's journey is different and very personal so no one can give me the magic path. But I'm so discouraged that my pain is not changing in anyway. Of course I start to doubt that it isn't indeed a physical problem. My pain doesn't move around, it's always just been my feet. The only other pain that i've ever had is a tailbone pain. It's super minor compared to the feet, but it's the only other pain or condidtion I have. I don't want to go back to pursing medical fixes, so I guess there is nothing else to do but keep working on this, but it's so hard. I wish i could see even the slightest of improvements.
