    My 2 feet are both arched in the middle, why and what is the reason for this, also, is it normal?

    I'd say the arch is about an inch, maybe slightly more in height

    You've got foot cancer. Better go to the Doctors immediately or you'll lose them.


    Just kidding, that's how they should be.

    My mum has flat feet - she finds it so uncomfortable to wear normal shoes since they're made for arched feet

    People with high arched feet are naturally fast runners. Flat footed people are slower runners. It's a good thing! I am medium arched but wish my feet were arched a little higher.

    If you have flat feet, then usually you should get an arch support thing for your shoes, to give you the arch. Or something like that. So yes, arched feet are very normal...

    I've been and they've refereed me to the muscloskeletal department. I've had insoles made and given workouts to do. the insoles ruin all my shoes and don't seem to be doing anything, if anything they are more uncomfortable and hurt more and these exercises are impossible to do because they cause me so much pain! My bones are starting to bend and my shins are getting really painful. lost all hope now

    They will be uncomfortable because you are basically reshaping your foot... Stick with it!

    Out of curiosity, have you considered going to a podiatrist?
    EDIT: Maybe look for answers on the foot health forum. I find that they are quite helpful.

    But insoles are meant to relieve pain, not create it or exacerbate it.

    Yeah but if you're having an arch corrected, your foot is going to be in a different position with one of those arch things in your shoe isn't it... I can't imagine that will be a comfortable process. Shouldn't be excruciating pain, obviously. The user up there needs to go back to their doctor... XD

    I know Thats what I was trying to say. I reckon if the doctor can't help, go to a podiatrist as sometimes doctors are not as good. But the pain shouldn't be getting worse.

    I'm the same :/ my ankles and hips click constantly and I can't walk nearly as far as my friends can without being in agony...

    My friend has flat feet much worse than me and was given some of the insoles you're talking about, she said they were quite painful to begin with but eventually they did start to help She hated them though...

    Did you wear the insoles gradually building up the time spent wearing them? we suggest wearing them for an hour or so the first day, 2 the second and so forth, as it does take time to get used to them. Do not give up. Go to a podiatrist and get a full biomechanical assessment.They can manufacture insoles that may make a huge difference. They should give you a review appt to check how you're getting on with your insoles. Unfortunately it can be a case of trial and error but a bit of relief is better than nothing at least.
