Lately, people have been asking a lot of questions about sore feet. How can you turn sore feet into happy feet?
Inspect: Even though your feet are a long way from your eyes, they are still important. Sores, bumps, and rashes can go unnoticed unless you look at your feet.

But when I lift one up, changing my weight from one to the other, it feels like the blood is rushing back to that foot. The only way to relieve the "pressure" is to sit and raise both my feet up on a stool or coffee table. I hope you can understand what I am describing. If you have worked on your feet all day you know the fe...
