Why are my feet stiff in the morning, but get better as the day goes on?

Osteoarthritis: Pain and stiffness in the am upon arising are usually due to osteoarthritic changes to the bones of your feet from trauma or aging.

I would suggest a podiatric consultation to determine the exact cause, and possible treatments, which might include oral nsaia, topical nsaia, or orthotics. ...Read more

Not a whole lot.....: ....will cause your symptoms in the MOUTH, legs, and feet all at once. Paresthesias can occur in and around the mouth during migraine heaaches but then, tingling and what not usually occurs in the fingers and toes...not generally lower extremities only. You need to be examined to see if the back pain ties to the feet. It for sure ain't gonna tie to the mouth. Good luck. ...Read more

Severe joint pain in hands and feet and morning stiffness. Sed rate is norm. So no inflammation. So why do they hurt?

Don't assume ...: That there is no joint inflammation because sed rate is normal. It's unclear from your note how long you have been experiencing severe joint pain; in the early stages of joint inflammation the sed rate may be normal and even the finding of joint swelling can be subtle. You are in the age group in which Rheumatoid Arthritis may occur. A more sensitive marker for inflammation is the CRP; ask MD. ...Read more

Try DMSO: DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide)--aka horse liniment--is available at a health food store or feed/veterinary supply. For systemic inflammatory conditions as you apparently have, I suggest one tsp per day orally. It tastes terrible. Mix with a small amount of water, and chase it with something else to kill the taste. Major adverse effect is that you will "off-gas" the DMSO in your breath and sweat. ...Read more
