My name is Emily and I am very concerned about my husband. Within the past, about 3 weeks, he has started with pain in his feet. This pain has slowly started getting worse and worse. When the pain started to increase he developed swelling and now he has bruising on the bottoms of both his feet. The pain is so bad that it is difficult for him to walk, stand, press the gas pedal when driving, he even cringes when one of our kids accidently hits his foot because it is so tender to touch. I have never seen him like this; I have seen him go through some pretty painful things and not make a sound or a face but this is crippling him. We have tried soaking his feet in Epsom salt, new inserts for his shoes, Biofreeze, pain killers, we have even tried soaking brown paper bags in vinegar and wrapping his feet with it. Nothing is working and since nothing is working he isn't working. I am so worried about him, our insurance takes effect on August 1st so I can't do anything until then but I really need some help. What could this be?
