I am a 50 year old woman and I am having problems with my feet. Both of my feet feel like they have a somewhat hard substance all bunched up inside of them. It feels like my feet are swollen up, but when I look at them and touch them with my fingers, they don't feel swollen to my touch. These sensations extend from the balls of both feet to the heel. While not painful, it is extremely uncomfortable. My feet feel like they are filling up with lumpy cement. I do have pain in both legs.

I am 50 year old female. I am experiencing a simular problem. My left leg "feels" swollen and tight, but it is not swollen and tight to the touch. The feeling starts at the knee and goes down to my foot. Went to doctor today, problem has been going on about 2-3 months. She doesn't have an answer. Sent me for blood work. Any suggestions anyone? 2-19-09

Me too. I can't figure it. I am going to the Mayo clinic I think but my neurologist says it could be a nuerpathy disorder.

I have had plantar fasciitis in both feet. This is where the fasci on the sole of the foot becomes stretched and torn. The test for this is to push firmly on your sole on the heel nest to the arch. Also, the pain is much worse when you first stand up. It can be excruciating! I got some help ten years ago with orthotics for the shoes, a bit of electrical stimulation and stretching exercises, but the swelling continued until it was visible, and I had no arch left. I had to wear orthopedic shoes and wrap and pad my arches. The Naproxen I took messed up my stomach. I really suffered. However, I began getting relief when (after five years) I began using a mild detoxification program for my body, because I had cancer. After several months, I noticed my feet feeling better and better. Eventually, my arches began to appear. Now I can stand for two hours or more when before 10 minutes and I had to sit down. I gained even more weight due to my inactivity, so I had taken up water aerobics which I did for eleven years. Using gemmotherapy, I took common juniper, fig tree, silver birch and lime tree. I now know that certain foods inflame the body: white sugar, highly processed carbohydrates, red meat, and processed milk products. Avoid cheap shoes with little support, slippers, flip flops etc. I was told not to walk barefoot at all. Good shoes have a firm support to the back of the heel, they have adequate arch support, they do not twist at all in your hands and only bend where the foot bends -- that is right at the base of your toes. Hope this helps.
