    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.

    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 pain from my groin all the way down to the tips of my toes also. It came on very suddenly after having weeks of pain in my tailbone which felt like it was bruised, so much so that I couldn't sit very long. After that came this tremendous pressure in my legs and just pure raw pain all the way down to the tips of my toes. I had to lie down right away and when I tried to get up and walk again, the muscles in my legs tightened up so much that I had to slide my feet to walk and I couldn't bend my legs. The muscles hurt tremendously. Right after that I could no longer stand, sit or walk very long or very far because my entire legs would stiffen up like that and the bottoms of my feet felt like I had large rocks on the bottom. It has been that way since 1991. I had 3 back surgeries before this happened. I finally found a doctor at a Pain Clinic who eventually diagnosed me with Neuropathy caused by scar tissue wrapped around the nerves at the base of my spine. He put me on Lyrica and this was a miracle drug. I take that as well as fairly low doses of Morphine. I am still in pain everyday; however, it is tolerable most of the time or at least I can function but I still have to limit walking, sitting or standing. Sometimes I need a walker, or a wheelchair to get around if the pain that day is too great or if a lot of walking is required. At least I am not bedridden like I was before I found this doctor. I was bedridden for 12 years because lying down was the only way the pain would not increase. The pain is very wearing on me, but at least I can live a fairly normal life now. My pain is caused from spinal damage, but most people who have Neuropathy have Diabetes and that is what causes their Neuropathy. I am very sorry that you are suffering from this because it is very painful and really does limit your activity. One has to force oneself to walk daily for exercize READ MORE

      I want to add this info to the last comment I wrote and that is that sometimes I feel like part of my leg is wet, and sometimes I feel tremendous burning in my feet and legs and a lot of pressure in both legs. There are times when I feel as if I have a pebble between my toes and sometimes I get bad cramps in my feet and my toes separate during these cramps. All these sensations are very curious to me. I never get the needles and pins sensations. Sometimes I will feel painful muscle spasm in my groin and I am unable to put any weight on one leg during this time. It will come on very fast and it will leave just as fast. One minute I can barely walk and the next minute it is gone and I can walk normally. Sometimes my pelvic floor will hurt so badly that I can barely walk. It feels like the bones in my pelvic floor are hurting tremendously. That will go away just as curiously and fast as it comes on also. I hope this helps you somewhat. I usually have to stop and rest when these things happen, but sometimes I just can't. I am very sorry for anyone who suffers from these things. Sometimes a heating pad helps me in the lower part of my back. Sometimes I use Lidocaine patches which one needs a prescription for. Many times I have to take my immediate release pain pills along with 2 Tylenol tablets and that seems to help also. God bless you. 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!

    I've had aching in my legs for 15 yrs and just recently found a pain doctor who told me I have nerve damage! From what no one seems to know! I'm over weight by 50 pounds but this started way before I gained weight. I had burning and pain from hell and now I'm getting relief after all these years. I eat no sugar and alot of fresh vegetables and no starchy veggies, chicken & fish. It works! READ MORE

    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 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
