I walked too much being homeless, in a pair of New Balance 608 gym shoes. Those were the worst shoes, felt like walking on concrete. I wore them for three months and now my heel spurs are killing me.

I am not sure of it is a heel spur but I have difficulty walking early morning and after sitting for a long time. Two days ago, I read about heel spurs and started to take ibuprofen. What a relief! The pain almost vanished in 24 hours. The question now is how long I need to continue taking the tablets.
