Walking (Definition)

Your doctor may also suggest a safe exercise plan. Walking is usually the easiest type of exercise, but swimming or other low-impact exercises can work just as well.

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. ...Read more

NEED FOR SUPPORT!: Most shoes aren't that bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! there are many possibe reasons that you may have pain in the feet, but try arch supports like spenco polysorb (http://www.Spenco.Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb) and otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve). If these don't help, see a podiatrist. ...Read more

Stress on bone.: It sounds like you may be exhibiting a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal. Probably best to have the foot examined to remove all doubt. You might need a special boot to help stabilize the bone. There could be other possibilities, but all may require resting the foot, so why not with a boot. ...Read more

Running, hit bottom of foot on curb edge. Severe pain. Ran today. Foot gave out on me. Saw dr in urgent care said nothing. Pain to walk and stand ?

Possible Fracture: Sounds like it could be a contusion or acute plantar fasciitis. If an x-ray was done at the urgent care center, then a fracture would have been determined. If not, go get one. I had a patient recently who fractured his foot on the edge of a stair. Meanwhile, apply ice/cold pack 2-3 times per day for 30 minutes at a time, and keep the foot elevated. MRI might be needed if there's no improvement. ...Read more

Just in one foot?: If the symptoms are just in one foot, and they affect the top and bottom of your foot, then radiculopathy may be the cause. This is a condition where nerve roots in the back are compressed. This normally affects one side. Another possible cause is peroneal neuropathy, which is often caused by crossing the legs too much. ...Read more

Pain in small spot bottom of foot, toward heel- in morning and walking. Feels like it's pulling from heel up back of my leg too. Plantar fasciitis?

Pain in small spot bottom of foot, toward heel- in morning and walking. Feels like it's pulling from heel up back of my leg too. Plantar fasciitis?

Probably: Plantar fasciitis is typically in the bottom of the heel. Worse in morning and after rest. It can hurt up the leg too from walking differently to compensate. Try ice, Achilles stretches, NSAIDs, orthotics, good shoes. Avoid barefoot and flat shoes without support. See you local podiatrist. It could be this problem or something else. They can help you get better. ...Read more

F/U prev (?)...l4 collapse w/o herniation, 2 days post epdrl, (L) leg numb when walking more than a few feet, bottom of foot tickle sensation. Worry??

Not if present prior: If the symptoms are similar to prior to epidural steroid injection, then no need to worry. If they are new, the injection may have irritated a nerve specifically S1 nerve. Even then unless you have horrible and intractable pain, I would simply watch it. Most likely will slowly go away. If terrible pain, see you spine surgeon and think of repeat MRI of lumbar spine. ...Read more

With any: unusual pain, swelling and numbness in the leg and foot it is highly recommended that you get seen in person by your doctor as soon as possible.

Stitches out 7 weeks following injury to heel but despite physio still have pain up back of heel and sole of foot. Should i ignore or keep walking?

Don't ignore: Hard to say without more info about your injury and level of pain. Can take 6-12 months to heal a heel (pun intended). Early weightbearing and range of motion are important steps to recovery. That being said, it's probably a good idea to check in with the treating physician to ensure healing is progressing according to schedule. ...Read more

More info: That really isn't enough information to give you a helpful answer. Where exactly is the pain? Under the ball of the feet? The heels? Arches? When does it hurt? Has there been an injury or change in activity? What shoes do you usually wear and do you keep them on at home? Does anything seem to help the pain?

Pain on the bottom of both feet esp. When i first stand up that gets better with walking I am a nurse that works up to 12 hours on my feet but this is really a problem just when i first stand and start walking

You : You are describing post-static dyskinesia. (post = after; status = rest; dyskinesia = pain; thus, "pain after rest")

without knowing exactly what parts of your feet you're feeling this in, it's hard to give specific advice. In my practice, post-static dyskinesia is most common in the heels, and a common symptom of plantar fasciitis, or an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a ligament that connects the heel bone to the ball of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is usually something that develops over several months and is associated with a high arched foot structure (which is less shock-absorbing than a flatter foot). While excessive weight doesn't really cause plantar fasciitis, there is an association between weight gain and plantar fasciitis, and excessive weight makes it harder to treat.

The best treatments for plantar fasciitis are some sort of orthotic to wear inside your shoe, steroid injections, stretching and wearing a night splint. Interestingly, some recent research has shown that over-the-counter arch supports have a better cure rate for this problem than a custom made orthotic, believe it or not!

i've focused on plantar fasciitis only because it's the most common cause of post-static dyskinesia. There are many other problems associated with this symptoms, but without more specific information, it's difficult to give specific advice.

In general, however, if you're on your feet long hours, it's best to wear a supportive sneaker, like new balance or nike, and one of the best over-the-counter arch supports out there are powersteps, which you can buy on line in many places.

Hope this helps. I love nurses! i married one! ...Read more

Have pain in bottom of mu feet in morning but gpes away after a little walking but not diabetic what could ve wrong?

Plantar fasciitis: You probably have plantar fasciitis. The pain characteristically is worse in the morning. If the pain is just in the ball of the foot, then it would be more likely to be metatarsalgia. So the location of the pain needs to be considered, but i think you have plantar fasciitis. ...Read more

My skin partially peeled off the bottom of my feet how can I prevent pain while walking?

Multi-layer dressing: Use sterile dressing and antibiotic ointment over the exposed skin to prevent infection and promote healing. Use a second layer of dressing or gauze. In between the first and second layer apply a lubricant such as vaseline or petroleum jelly. Secure those layers with a roll gauze and tape. All of this goes under your sock and should prevent pain when walking. ...Read more
