    Why do the bones in my legs, feet hurt day in and day out?

    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.



This question has not been answered by one of our experts yet.

    I am 46, female, and my feet and legs hurt all the time.  I have always said that I think its in my blood.  Doctors just tell me to diet and exercise.  Easy to say, hard to do. My feet hurt at all the pressure points, my legs hurt mainly in my calves and at the bend of my knees.  This has been going on for along long time and I am so sick and tired of it.  Why can't anyone find the answers.  If anyone could help please reply.

      I have the same troubles with my feet and legs, I am told to excerise my lower legs,and feet give me such pain I can't stand it, the doctors haven't helped at all, besides making me feel like I'm crazy. Trust me I will figure this out some day, on my own, these specialist I've seen, are all over paid, and don't know squat. I'm sorry you feel the same way I'm 44 years old male, that's suffered from this for six years now, and have had so many blood test, and nothing,it sound like diabes but nope I'm fine, the Doctors tell me, I wish these Doctors could walk a mile in my shoes, I'm sure they would figure it out real soon. Good luck. READ MORE

      I'm not alone...after looking for a answer I found these other responses and wondered if anyone has found anything at all.  I'm in constand pain. My feet and legs hurt so I can hardly walk. I am a hairstylist and have been for over 30 yrs. I figured from standing in more or less one position is the cause, That doesn't include home doing dishes and cooking. I stand more then sit. But it had gotton to the point I can hardley stand at all.; I have always been active., cycling, walking/hiking. I even had a trainer for over 4 yrs. 2-3 times per week. I just started back at the gym after almost a yr. My thyroid medication has caused signifigant weight gain, and with depessed feelings I have over eaten, even though it was good healthy there is a such thing as too much. I have had a remetologist look me over and many other doctors. I did feel a bit of relief from accupunture and massages but here I sit on my weekend off in pain! I walked a bit but can't stand the pain.  Does anyone have a clue???? Please help if you can     Sharoan READ MORE

    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!

    Omg this sounds like me also. I have been in bed all day. Cause I'm still hurting from last night when I worked. I to am on my feet all the time. I am also 46. This causes me to have depression. I feel I'm to young yo feel this bad. The bottom of my foot near the heel hurts. Knees- calves -muscles -chin. And My ham strings. I work six days a week cleaning Dr offices for about a year. Thought kinks would be out by now. READ MORE
