Aching Legs =(

I wasn't sure which board to post this in..but here's the thing...I work in a deli and am on my feet all day...we don't take breaks..cause there just isn't enough of us to cover each other...that's not the problem though..the problem is...the floor is made of cement...and it is killing my feet and legs...I have to soak in a hot bath for like an hour after work to make the aching subside a little. My question there anything I can do that will help my legs and feet from aching like this? I am only 21, and i'm beginning to feel 60.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Aching Legs =(

I would make sure you're wearing comfortable and very supportive shoes/running shoes first of all; that can make a big difference. May be a bit expensive, but it's well worth putting some money into a shoe than spending countless trips to a podiatrist. Also, you might purchase some support hose, that could help. When you get home, try resting with your legs elevated. Best of luck and hope you feel better!

Re: Aching Legs =(

I know exactly how you feel, I've had the same problem ever since I can remember. I've been a waitress for 15 years, now I work in a bakery on cement floors. I agree with Sunnydaze about the supportive shoes, if I don't have good support, I suffer dearly. I thought I'd add that I have to buy new shoes every 6 months, after 6 months the support wears out. A hot bath at the end of the day is a lifesaver.
