Lately, people have been asking a lot of questions about sore feet. How can you turn sore feet into happy feet?
Inspect: Even though your feet are a long way from your eyes, they are still important. Sores, bumps, and rashes can go unnoticed unless you look at your feet. Anyone with diabetes or another condition that causes numbness should inspect their feet daily. Some people have even had their legs amputated because of a small sore that became infected. Pay attention to your feet; they are the only ones you get.
Shoe Inserts: The more cushioning for your feet, the better. Many products offer shock absorption that fit into the shoes. If you are on your feet often or are a very heavy person, the inserts need to be changed at least every six months because the shocks wear out.

As much as we'd like to help you, what you need is for someone to diagnose your headache and recommend treatment, and that can't be done via the Internet. The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.
Unexplained head pain should always be checked out. Please see your doctor.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
