I am having alot of trouble with my feet and cannot seem to find similar problems, I have pain when standing for periods of time but also standing in short bursts, eg in the weekend I went OP shopping, I was in and out of the car, never on my feet for more that 30min at a time, I then went to do my grocery shopping which took about 30-45 min, the pain is horrendous, I pay for it for the rest of that day and the next. When I sit the pain goes I just have a throb but as soon as I stand up I nearly fall over with the pain, If I am in a situation where I still have to carry on doing things and cannot stay off my feet for the rermainder of the day, my feet start throbbing, my heels are painful to the touch and I cannot stand without something supporting me, even to the point I am crying due to the pain, I have a job where I am sitting most of the day so have no pain it only happens when i am on my feet for more that 30min at a time. I have back problems and am not sure if this is related as the back pain is nothing compared to this pain, Is there anyone out there who can shed light on what this may be?
The pain in your feet could be various things. Have you had your blood sugar level tested? It could be diabetic neuropathy. If not it could also be any neuropathy problem which could affect the nerves in your extremities (feet). Check with your physician and let him/her check your feet. He may refer you to a neurologist. It could also be some edema (blood pooling). Do you notice if your feet are swelled? A podiatrist could also carefully examine your feet for plantars, bunions, etc. It could also be gout. This is found by a blood test for uric acid levels. My mother had gout in both feet and they were very sore. She took pills for it and elevated her feet. It could be something very simple or very complicated. There can be tons of things that cause sore feet. I remember I had to take a week off work a few years ago after I volunteered at an event where I had to stand on a concrete floor for about 12 hours a day. My feet were so sore, swelled and they really hurt. I would first check with your doctor and get them checked out. Good luck.
