headache when wearing some shoes

Post by EricaR »

I can't keep wearing slippers/shoes for longtime.. Especially, slippers made of rubber.. Sometimes I wear rubber slippers when travelling as it's simple and easy.. But, I get severe headache when wearing slippers..Has someone experienced such a wired condition before?

The shoes go on your feet.

Hope that helps.

@EricaR

Never experienced this but I've encountered articles here and there about how sandals/slippers are generally not good for posture and it is not unusual that frequent wearing can cause misalignment up the legs...which misaligns the spine...which can misalign the head and cause headaches. Flat footers beware.

I'd suggest wearing good hiking shoes for your travels anyhow.

Do your feet hurt when you wear certain hats?

Do a headstand while wearing the slippers and see if you still get the headache.

Are you allergic to rubber? Is the headache a sinus headache from smelling the shoes?

The balancing/misalignment issue mentioned up thread sounds like a reasonable possibility.

while reflexology doesn’t “cure” anything (i think), i’ve used it successfuly to relieve various symptoms/aches/pains/ etc.

maybe it could also work the other way, where the wrong pressure on the wrong nerve ending might induce pain. “evil acupuncture” so to speak.

btw, torturers usually beat the feet of their prisoners for this reason. see: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_whipping

having said that, i don’t know what specific shoes you’re referring to. in summer i wear the cheapest 99c flipflops at home, the kind that half of the people of the tropics wear, and they’re great. i can’t stand tight shoes that squeeze my toes. i prefer near-barefoot walking.

i do have the recollection of my wife once buying a pair of hard plastic flipflops for some reason, emergency or something, and they turned out atrocious and impossible to wear.

I've heard the relation between headache with socks but didn't see any connection between headache with sleepers. You might be overthinking about your sleepers. If you think you are not, then remember the difference these have with your last shoes.

i don’t have flat feet, but funny thing, i was getting headaches recently due to a new position of my computer monitor, and my head hanging somewhat forward.

i thought it might have been caffeine related, or impending death, but no, it was just from inadvertent bad posture. funny thing that it is felt in the brain stem, not in the muscles, so it misleads one about the actual causes.
