Sorry you are in pain, its easy to forget how essential feet are until they hurt!

Not sure from your post whether you bought these orthotics 'off the shelf' i.e decided yourself which ones were right for you, or had them recommended by a podiatrist/chiropodist/chiropractor etc?

Either way, I think you are more likely to get a successful outcome if you get specalist advice, as poor orthotics will throw your whole gait off balance.

Good luck, hope you get it sorted.
