Very painful feet . Am I right in thinking

that someone posted about this a few days ago ? . I remember catching sight of a post a few days ago ,but I simply cannot find it .

I cannot believe how painful and swollen my feet are . If I get up to the loo I walk like a Chinese woman who has her feet bound .

It's nothing to do with heat as we have had precious little of that . My actual bones hurt .

  • This one is older than a few days but I hope you will find it useful Pinkpeony

  • Thank you , I will take look .


  • I can sympathise with you. When my levels are not right my feet are so painful that I can barely walk. My hips also begin to ache around the outer side of the hip right at the top of the leg. I am beginning to get this way again and have an appointment for tomorrow to see Doc about getting my bloods checked. I have been hypo for around 8 years and I now know when my levels are not quite right..

  • doris thank you .

    I am taking NDT and haven't had my bloods checked for a while so will do that .

    I saw a doctor last week who offered me water tablets😕

  • Morning, I am sorry to hear your feet are so painful. Have you tried soaking them in Epsom salts and warm water? This has helped me in the past. I love Magnesium oil it helps with aches and pains. I hope things improve pretty darn quick for you x

  • PS Pinkpeony, I have Scholls support socks on prescription and these have helped a lot with swollen ankles. I was prescribed made to measure ones, but found them to tight and difficult to put on. I have them on my repeat prescription and get 2 pairs every 3 months. x

  • Thanks Mango , I am just puzzled as to why it has just appeared in the last few weeks . I am having a bit of a rough time at the minute , a trapped nerve in my hip that I was having physio for which is a bit of a laugh as she has cracked my rib with too vigorous a treatment .

    Now my feet! I am so sick of feeling " crap , my poor hubby must be sick of me .

    Sorry for the whinge 😥 Pp

  • I had plantar fasciitis before I got my T3 levels up high enough. I don't get it any more. It tends to affect people first thing in the morning or after sitting for a long period of time. Could it fit your symptoms?

  • humanbean , no it's the top of my feet into my ankles . I came out of hospital in May with a ringworm on each ankle and I'm convinced that either that or the anti-fungal c ream I have to put on is the cause . The doctor of course begs to differ. The skin is shiny and stretched . I have sprayed magnesium oil on them today, and will try the Epsom salts. Pp

  • Cellulitis?

    If it is this, then you have to be treated with antibiotics. It can become extremely serious :

    If the symptoms of cellulitis fit your symptoms, then if you get no joy from your GP I would suggest going to A&E.

  • Scary stuff humanbean . I will keep an eye on it.

    Thank you .
