Pain in feet when walking and standing, but none when sitting.
I've had a very bad aching pain in my feet for almost 5 months now. It hurts on the bottoms of my feet, both front and heel, whenever I use them for just a short time. I don't have any tingling sensations, and I don't have any pain in the mornings or at night. They feel completely fine whenever I'm not using them, like if I'm in bed or sitting down. They feel the best whenever I'm sitting at a high stool and there's no pressure on them at all, or if I'm just lying in bed. However, if I'm sitting at a regular chair with the bottoms of my feet down, I will start to feel the pain if I put any small pressure down on them.
I purposefully haven't been doing any running for the past 3 months, in case I somehow injured them, but they still haven't gotten any better. I've never had any foot problems before, and I recently bought a new pair of supportive shoes to help. They feel much better whenever I'm wearing them, but after just 10 minutes the pain comes back.
Could any of this persistent pain be symptoms of early onset diabetes?
