Confused about Foot pain

I am 23 and have been diagnosed with flat feet since I was 10 and have been wearing orthotics since then. Last year after living in pain for a year I finally had surgery for a bone spur and cyst in the middle of my left foot. About 3 weeks ago I sprained my foot and was diagnosed with a level 2 sprain. The ER told me I had possibly chipped my foot in the area where my surgery was and just gave it a twist. Upon following up with my podiatrist, he claimed I was fine and over reacting. Now I can barely work 6hrs with out shooting pain and sitting "criss cross apple sauce," as the kid I baby sit calls it, sends pain shooting through my foot. While trying to sleep I do get shooting pain as well.. I was given celebrex and told I am going to have arthritis in my foot. Is there anything else I can do? Any other reason for my pain, because my DR said it should be pain free in 2 weeks. I have an appointment next week with another Dr since mine is out of town. I just want to be able to walk without tons of pain.

Re: Confused about Foot pain

Hi! Sorry to hear you are in so much pain and frustration. I would recommend getting a 2nd opinion from a board certified foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon, not a general ortho and not another podiatrist. Good luck and let us know it goes!

Re: Confused about Foot pain

Thanks everyone. I work for 2 major companies and am required to be at work. One I am seasonal so I have been calling in, the other I am full time and trying to take it easy by switching my long shifts. I know my foot gets aggravated by my job, but I don't want to lose my benefits and I love what I am doing. I have a feeling I will probably have to look for alternative jobs, but not yet. Not giving up yet.
