I have been dealing with chronic foot pain for the past 8 months or so. Every couple months I'll wake up, and barely be able to walk for about 3 days. Then it goes away. My doctor can't figure it out either.. possibly gout, tendonitis, stress fracture. Anyways, I'm terrified this could end up making my thru-hike a nightmare. I have no intention of giving up my plans however. Anyone with similar issues, or advice? Any boot suggestions?
