Bottom of foot pain when walking after sitting for a while?

Plantar Fascitis: Generally pain on the bottom of the foot is the sudden stretching of the plantar fascia, a big band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. At rest it is short and when you stand your foot arch flattens out and the fascia is pulled away from the bone causing inflammation. It generally does not go away on it's own. See a podiatrist for long term relief.

Top of one foot pain when walking/movement especially upon waking & after rest for over 4 months. RA has been ruled out. What else can it be?

Multiple reasons: Pain on the top of the foot could be from tendinitis, stress fracture, joint inflammation or injury. If blood work has ruled out RA, you should get an X-ray if not done, you may need an anti inflammatory or an insert to help take stress off the foot.

I began to experience left foot pain when walking yesterday. Pain is towards the heel, and is mild. No pain at all when walking up stairs. What to do?

Stretch and massage: Consider massaging the arch and heel. Stretching the foot by pulling toes toward you can also help relieve tension on the plantar fascia ligament on the bottom of your feet. I would also recommend proper arch supports in your shoes.

Stubbed foot getting off of elevator. Foot is achy and mild pain when walking/standing/driving. Can move around without pain. Do I need an xray still?

Stubbed foot: If you are having even mild pain as you state an x ray is indicated. I have seen many chip and overt fractures this way. Seek the help of a podiatrist - you will be glad you did! Best of luck.

My foot hurts in my arch on the inside if I do not wear my brace when walking it hurts all the time. I am on my foot all day at work I push shopping carts. The pain is tingling and dull all the time?

My foot hurts in my arch on the inside if I do not wear my brace when walking it hurts all the time. I am on my foot all day at work I push shopping carts. The pain is tingling and dull all the time?

Pinhed nerve: You may have a pinched nerve to the area on the bottom of the arch area. When you wear the brace the pressure is taken off the area and it feels better. Talk to your doctor about a medication that can help to get rid of the pain in addition to the brace.

Pain in calfs with severe Right knee pain that travels through the whole leg and to the buttocks and severe pain in feet when walking?

Sounds Sciatic: Radiating pain up and down the legs sounds like a nerve issue. The sciatic nerve and its branches would be the likely culprit. The important question is what's causing the irritation? It could be a space occupying lesion, bakers cyst, related to increased facial compartment pressures or an issue with the nerve itself. It definitely deserves a thorough evaluation. Dr.R

How do I know when a foot stress fracture is healed b/c my foot hurts when walking but not when I'm resting soon as start to walk it hurts so bad?

How do I know when a foot stress fracture is healed b/c my foot hurts when walking but not when I'm resting soon as start to walk it hurts so bad?

Have an X-ray: The only way to determine if a fracture has healed is to not healing across the fracture site with an xray. If you walk on a stress fracture that is not healed, you can risk creating a complication - possibly a displaced fracture. See the doctor and get x-rays.
