5 Health Problems Associated with Sore Feet


We rely on our feet more than we give them credit for. After all, they’re literally our soldiers on the ground. If you’ve walked a mile today, you’ve taken about 2,000 steps, which is enough to make your tootsies tingly.

However, while walking a lot or wearing improper shoes can be the main culprits of sore feet, there are number of other conditions that your painful peds could be squealing about. In fact, the Mayo Clinic lists more than 25 different causes of sore feet other than overuse, but let’s take a closer look at 5 of them…

 

1. Nerve Damage

The Mayo Clinic lists peripheral neuropathy as one of the possible causes of painful feet. This condition can cause weakness and numbness in your feet and burning or stabbing pain, and can be caused by traumatic injuries, infections or exposure to toxins.

One of the causes of this painful condition is diabetes, but the Clinic says the symptoms of the pain could be managed if you treat the underlying conditions. Medications can also be helpful.
