Foot Pain When Walking After Sitting
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 its own. See a podiatrist for long term relief. ...Read more

A podiatrist or foot and ankle orthopedist should be able to make the diagnosis and help you. ...Read more
Looking for some guidance regarding pain in left foot. Pain at tip of 2nd and 3rd toes while walking. No real discomfort elsewhere in toes or foot?
I'm assuming no injury/trauma. First, is it the very early signs of a pinched nerve supplying the second and third toes; it's called a neuroma, most commonly affecting the 3rd and 4th toes. Second, if diabetic, is it the very, very early signs of diabetic neuropathy? Those are my thoughts.

Hi, I've heel and foot pain on both feet. The more I walk or stand the more painful it is. Sometime even without walking a lot. 10 min. It's been 2y.
