    Toss those slippers to the side, and don't even think about barefeet! Try using a hard sole shoe. Such as a clog. I have a lot of pain in my feet and knees in the morning making it had to walk but i have found that if I slip into a hard sole shoe it gives me the suport i need to get around in the morning. Now getting out of bed dosn'r seem so bad.

    For me, the harder the surface, the worse my feet (knees, hips, etc) hurt. I get relief from Okabashi flips. They are endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association and I must say they are fantastic. You can check them out at http://www.okabashi.com/ . I get mine at CVS and live in them most of the year (which I can do in SW Florida!)

    Thanks! I will check out the site. I also have major problems with my feet. I live out in the country, so opted for tile floors for easier cleaning. This was before I was diagnosed. I'll try the Okabashi flips.
