Feet/Knee Pain & Weight Gain...??
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
I've never been heavier. Lately, my feet HURT. My knees too. Especially my right foot. It's not my ankles per se, but right where my foot connects to my lower leg bone has been hurting for a couple of weeks now. The arch of my foot hurts, the top of my foot hurts, and all the areas in between. At the end of the day, my foot/ankle just feels like it's broken. I'm assuming it's because of my excess weight. I have very nice, relatively new sneakers with good support that I wear during the day, so I honestly don't think it's my shoes. I've never felt anything like this before.
This may sound like a funny question, but do any of you experience foot pain because of weight gain? What do you do about it, OTHER THAN TRY TO LOSE WEIGHT. That in and of itself is kind of a Catch-22...it's harder to lose that weight when your feet/knees/back/etc is in pain.
I would appreciate any advice, suggestions, or personal testimonies.
