I sprained my left ankle twice, then someone stepped on the top of ankle with a steel toe boot on that left a really bad bruise. Every time I put a shoe on that foot, I have pain. I can put flats, low head, wedges, shoes with or without support, but I always feel needles and pins when I walk. I have seen several doctors and all they ever tell me is that I have a low arch/flat feet and that I need an insert. Something is wrong. Please help.
Just guessing here, I'd bet that you have not seen a neurologist (nerve specialist). The fact that you have a tingling or pins/needle sensation is a big clue that a nerve is involved. Possibly the tibial nerve as part of a condition called Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. This condition is commonly associated with flat or low arches and is usually associated with tingling or burning while walking.
Not that you will find a "quick fix" but further investigation is probably worth the extra step.
