My feet hurt & my legs hurt all the time. Feels like my bones ache not muscle. What could this be? I am only 42, female, and within my normal weight bracket. My feet have hurt for some time, but the pain has worsened recently. My job does require me to be on my feet often, but not all the time. The pain begins with my arches and worsens at the heel, then run up my legs. Seems to hurt worse in my joints. But the entire leg hurts.
I see that your question sparked a lot of interest, and many people responded (and are still responding). I do hope you found relief. If you discovered helpful treatments, I would love to hear about them.

I had a hospital based blood infection too...Antibiotics for 30 days also. Now the horrible pain in hips, knees and legs. Is this the infection coming back??? Thanks!
I have the same pain and have had it for years. It is called Neuropathy. I do not have Diabetes, nor am I overweight. Mine is caused from scar tissue and arthritis in my spine at the 4 to t5 levels which controls the nerves in the legs and feet. I had 3 back surgeries. My pain doctor put me on Lyrica back in 2007 and I am able now to lead a fairly active life as a 67 yr. old woman. I am also on mild very low doses of Morphine, but the Lyrica was the miracle drug. At first it made me very tired and sleepy, but now my body is used to it and that doesn't happen anymore. Everyone is different insofar as how the drug affects them, but at first it made me so tired that I had a very difficult time staying awake and when I did fall asleep, it was difficult to wake me up. As I said though, you may be different. It is so worth it though because it changed my life. I had been bedridden for years because no doctor told me what was wrong and that was the only thing I could do in order for the pain not to accelerate on a higher level each day. I am now able to walk, ride a bike, babysit my grandchildren, everything. Good luck with your journey to a less painful future.
I have the same problem. My bones ache and it is difficult to walk - even more so first thing in the mornings. This has been going on for 6 months. I have had every test known and am told it is a spinal injury. They took more blood for further testing and should call back in a day or so with results. So far, all they tell me is that it is coming from the spine. I will keep you posted, please let me know if you find anything as well. Thanks.
I have this same problem, I have a lower back disorder, and have had seven abdominal surgeries. I have been suffering with leg and feet pain and numbness for over four years now, I can only say, It gets worse not better. Due to the problems, it has caused me to become less active, which in turn has caused the circulation problem that leads to cold feet and legs.. My feet are always cold to touch, but, for the most part, I can not even feel my own feet any more. It is scary, I get into the pool now that it is warm out side, I do exercises with my legs, and then the next day I can barely walk. Almost as though my hips dont wanna work. Alls I can say, if you have a low back problem, injury or disease, this is something that will never get better! Exercise everyday, even if its only ten minutes of leg exercises, do it, it will be the only way you will be able to keep going!
