    Here's the deal. I was unemployed for a year and a half and just started a new job 2 weeks ago. For the year and a half I pretty much lived in flip flops and ballet slippers. Now I'm wearing tennis shoes again on a daily basis (8 hours/day the first week, now 10 hours/day of almost constant standing and walking). The pain started on the second night of work. I originally had pain in the bottom of my feet just at the very back of the heel, but that has gone away now. But the pain on the inner foot is as bad as ever. It's sore to the touch, it's painful to walk on. It is worse in the right foot than the left, but that could be because I have bone spurs in my left knee and I tend to limp a bit. But there's no bruising and no swelling. I keep thinking it's just me getting used to having regular shoes on again and that I'll get used to it. But since I'm no doctor, who knows. And I can't afford to go see a doc until my insurance kicks in at the 90 day mark. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
