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. Often the discomfort will lessen with movement, and return to plague you then following morning. 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

After spending 8-11 hours standing and walking on concrete floor working I get pain iin my feet and stiffness in my ankles what can I do to stop this?

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

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.

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.
