Around 50 percent of Fibromyalgia sufferers report pain in one or both feet. And while Fibro pain is more likely to occur in the neck and hips, foot pain can have a significant impact on walking and general mobility.
Many sufferers describe their pain as a feeling of fire and a prolonged burning sensation. Stepping across an uneven surface can feel like stepping on razor blades. Another common complaint is waking up with feet that feel like they have just walked a marathon.
So, what causes Fibro foot pain?
Fibromyalgia is associated with inflammation of the fascia, the thin layer of connective tissue that runs through our entire body. This inflammation is linked to the onset of myofascial pain syndrome, which creates small rope like nodules in the fascia and results in significant pain. Another cause is disfunction in the subtalar joint below the ankle.
One of the most effective treatments to ease Fibro foot pain is Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), a fatty acid amide that treats the underlying cause of the inflammation. Other treatments include supplementation with Magnesium as Glycinate, correcting any Vitamin D deficiency and cooling cream to relieve the feeling of burning feet.
