Topic - Foot pain after wearing Crampons

SAF - on 11 Dec 2012
I have just rediscovered this week how much pain I always end up in after wearing Crampons for any length of time.

The pain is in the ball of my foot, and although it is present when I am out wearing the Crampons (B3/C3) it seems to get worse after (I went out 8 days ago and my foot is still painful now), suggesting some sort of inflamation.

The pain fits this description of Metatarsalgia

"The pain can range from mild to severe and often gets worse when you stand or move. It is sometimes described as a burning or aching sensation and you may have shooting pains, tingling or numbness in your toes. Some people also experience a sensation that feels like walking on pebbles.

The pain often occurs in the area where the second, third and fourth toes meet the ball of the foot."

Does anyone else suffer with this? Anybody got any advice/tips beyond taking anti-inflamatories, whcih is all I can think of?
