Sore feet
Old 03-13-2022, 01:15 PM

rFor the past several months, the tops of my feet are very sore in the morning. At first it was just the first few steps that were painful, but now it's for the first hour or two. They also start hurting if I'm sedentary for awhile and then get up. The pain is getting worse too.

I don't think it's plantar fasciitis because most of the pain is on the top. I had been doing a workout program that involved a lot of jumping. I stopped that and have done very little working out lately and it's actually gotten worse.

Any ideas what might be going on?

This is a shot in the dark but it seems like it might be associated with jumping.

Sounds like arthritis. I had the same thing and it was so painful. I tried anti inflammatory meds which worked for awhile, but being on my feet all day made it worse. I finally resorted to cortisone shots which helped. All of these provided temporary relief. I had a doctor talk to me about changing my diet. I cut down on white flour/sugar and started taking vitamin D. I also lost weight. Iím no longer on medicine and the pain is gone. I am able to stand/walk without pain.
Best of luck to you. I know how you feel.

Arthritis? Stress fractures from jumping?

It does sound like arthritis, but I'm hoping it's not! I'm 38. Perhaps I'll try to make an dr appt for spring break.

I would definitely see a doctor.

Do you notice any swelling or edema? That could indicate a circulation problem in your veins. That will make your feet hurt at night, and first thing in the morning, but as you move around more the circulation improves and the pain recedes.

Could be arthritis. We teachers torture our feet with the amount of standing (often on hard concrete floors) we do.

Could be as simple as what shoes you have on and how you tie them. I have high arches, and tied shoes like sneakers often make the tops of my feet hurt. They can feel bruised, or even like something is broken in there. But, changing shoe types, or loosening/altering the ties can sometimes help.

Good luck! Sore feet are the worst! You really can't stop walking!

Hope you are feeling better. I think the Vitamin D3 and blueberries can help too.
