What causes severe pain in feet?

I ve had severe stinging in my feet for 2 years. Can not stand to wear shoes or have anything touch my feet. I recently had heel spurs removed from both feet and had 8 months of physical therapy. The pain is not subsiding. My surgeon says it will go away but I m having my doubts after so long with no relief. Someone suggested B-12 might help. What are your thoughts on this?

Dear Patient,
Welcome, and thanks for sharing your concern
I went through your query, you need to be aware that heel spurs removal is not a full proof method, its an visible abnormality of stretching of the plantar fascia, and its removal may or may not provide relief from symptoms, you should pay more attention to being active and regular physio, things will get in control, also look towards your life style , you shoe wear may be something amongst them is causing the symptoms.
I hope my advice would have been useful, in decision making regarding your treatment, still if you have any clarifications or doubts feel free to contact back.
