Hi everyone.

I have been following the NSD for 9+ years with mostly good effect. I feel very good, unless my body gets thrown a curve ball (antibiotics, tetnus shot or injury).

In the past 9 months I have been having periodic foot pain in the ball of my foot, but mostly on the top. It moves around a bit, but it feels like my metatarsals are inflamed. It has been killing me for weeks now. I can no longer walk at all. I have seen 2 podiatrists who are clueless, so I am assuming it is the AS. Have any of you had success treating this kind inflammation without pulling out "the big guns"?

Thanks so much!

Hi light,

I think I have had similar pain in my feet. The pain on top is worst over the third to fifth metatarsals. When it's sore it hurts to the touch. At its worst I am unable to walk - each step feels like I'm walking on a broken foot. (I even went for xrays at one point).

It took me awhile but I eventually linked it to wearing less structured footwear (ballet flats, thin-soled athletic shoes, flip flops, etc.) I love walking but I have a terrible gait (overpronate, bunions, bad knees, tig7ht hip flexors/weak glutes) which I think puts extra pressure on my feet when I wear minimalist footwear.

Not sure if your situation is similar, but in case it is, my pain improved in the short term when I switched up my shoes. I found long term improvement from developing my foot strength and working on my flexor/glute imbalances.
Suspected SpA. HLA B27, xray, u/sound, blood tests all -ve. Ancient history of plantar fasciitis, SI joint pain, knee arthritis. Recent history of tendinitis, neck pain, debilitating finger pain and stiffness (especially mornings). No diagnosis, no meds.

Jan 2017 - discovered NSD - 97% improvement in symptoms, continually amazed by my results, wish I'd found kickAS sooner
2014 - stopped eating all grains
2012 - stopped eating wheat
2010 - stopped eating dairy
