    What causes foot and ankle pain after sitting?

    Hello! When I sit down lately and stand up later my feet hurt on the bottom. They're sore and it's hard to start walking. I'm depressed about the pain, and since I don't have health insurance it's hard to see a doctor. I am overweight, and I take over-the-counter pain medication. Different shoes don't seem to help, either.

    Jack,

     

    It's important that you try to find a way to see a doctor. There are so many things that can cause foot pain that it's difficult to know what it might be without a thorough exam. Neuropathy, bone fractures, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and other problems can make walking miserable. I don't know what your foot problem is, but I hope you find a way to get it checked out.

    I have the same thing, I am 56 And I almost fear getting out of bed, I am pretty sure it is from menopause, not enough estrogen, wreaks havoc on the muscles and tendons, And mine started soon,after stopping my periods. Wear comfortable shoes, and keep taking alleve.
