How to save your aching feet when wearing high heeled shoes?

How do women not know this secret? I just found out about this myself and I couldn't believe it! Take (2) tablets of Ibuprofen just after you put your shoes on. Your feet won't hurt you after hours of wearing them.  I tried this when I went to a fancy party and I didn't notice my feet all night.  Who Knew! I think this is the best kept secret and I am here to expose it!  Good luck! Tidbitz given by Kim B., West Bloomfield, MI
