If your feet ache after walking long distances or standing for many hours, pes planus may be the cause. You may also feel pain in your lower legs and ankles. Your feet may feel stiff or numb, have calluses and possibly lean toward each other.
With pes planus means that the arch has collapsed and the entire sole of the foot either is completely or nearly completely touching the ground.
Terrible! Due to pes planus at the bottom of my left foot, my left ankle swells, and the bottom of my foot swells too. There are times I can't walk on stand on it.
I have great pain when standing for long periods of time.
I’ve got tiny bumps all over my neck and chest sometimes on my faces. Hey look similar to a little Whitehead. But doesn’t poop. Nothing comes out. They look like chicken skin, but not that. What could this be?
Can I see a picture of the bumps? Are they tiny acnes, or milia, or clogged pores?
Whom should I ask for help from?
If you have foot pain or your feet are causing problems with walking and running, see an orthopedic surgeon or a podiatrist.
Although it tends to be hereditary and usually can’t be prevented. However, you can prevent the condition from worsening. Taking precautions such as wearing shoes that fit well and provide the necessary foot support.
Depending on the cause of your condition, your doctor might prescribe medication to reduce sustained pain and inflammation, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. For those who are overweight, it is highly recommended to lose weight.
How about surgery?
Well, surgery may be an option in more serious cases, but it is usually the last resort.
