Can anyone help please?? I have had achilles tendinitis for nearly a year and eventually (?!!) went to a podiatrist, who made up a pair of orthotics. This pair was fine and the injury was well on the mend. I went back after 3 months to have a check up and he has changed my orthotics. These press under the arch of my foot and was sceptical about them helping.
You see, if anything presses under my foot, I get cramp. The same happens if I tie my laces too tight! It feels like a scrunched up sock under my foot or a rock!
Anyway, off I goes for a run and immediately, my left foot hurts and goes into cramp. I loosen my shoes and retie them. The cramp goes off but then get a blister under my arch (near my big toe) and toes hurt like hell with banging on shoes.
Can anyone tell me if I just need to persevere using usual tactics of compeed and different lacing or has the podiatrist done something wrong?
