@thomaslink Hi and come on in. This forum on neuropathy is filled with so many different types of problems from the bottom of the feet to other parts of the body. It seems there are pockets of pain in different places for different people. My feet sound like yours although I can wear socks and have to wear shoes because barefoot is worse for me. I have pain like walking on broken glass. I have tried several brands of shoes but as of yet I am not comfortable in any of them. I have worn Birkenstocks for decades, and though they don't soothe my feet, they are what I am used to. I wish I had an answer, but I don't. It doesn't seem that there are any answers. Has your doctor suggested anything that will help? Sometimes a podiatrist can suggest shoes; have you tried that?
I hope you can find something that will help. I hope we all can.
