My Feet Hurts To Walk When I Get Up And From Sitting Down.

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.

Answer

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.
