Care for your feet: Taking care of your feet is very important when you spend long periods of time on them. Properly fitting shoes with good arch supports and sufficient cushion for walking (which is different for running or for court sports) is very important. Also consider additional arch supports (not just insoles which are flat) that go in your shoes. Spenco is one of many brands of arch supports available. ...Read more

I stand on a concrete floor 2 days a week for 15 hours a day. My feet are stinging by the time I get home.  What can I do to help along w/back ache?

See below: Here are some suggestions: take frequent breaks and stretch your legs. Buy special orthotic pads for the inside of your shoes. Get a floor pad to stand on that is a little soft and so relieves the pain in your back by reducing strain but not too soft that your stance is unstable. Ask your doctor or a physical (or occupational) therapist about where to get it. ...Read more

My mom's legs and feet are swollen and painful and has brownish spots coming and disappearing from time to time, what is that?

Not Specific: Lower extremity swelling often leads to pain and the excess fluid makes the legs heavy. The decrease in oxygen that gets through the edema can lead to brown patches, and sometimes even blisters or ulcers. At least 3 possible concerns: is her heart strong? Does she have arterial blockage to her legs? Does she have venous obstruction(insufficiency) from her legs? Please take her to see her doctor. ...Read more

The soles of my feet are getting painful lumps when i walk in flipflops. Also recently, my lips get excessively swollen when i bite inner lip by accident (during eating). Are these related causes?

The soles of my feet are getting painful lumps when i walk in flipflops. Also recently, my lips get excessively swollen when i bite inner lip by accident (during eating). Are these related causes?

Correlation?: It these two issues are related, it isn't readily apparent. It sounds as though one issue is trauma to the lip with eating. If this is a chronic problem - has it been assessed by denta/ oral surgeon? Standard flip flops provide little protection or padding to the soles of the feet. Have you considered footwear that offers more support and protection? ...Read more
