Anyone experience overwhelming pain after a nice long walk?? I could walk for miles and feel ok doing it. The problem starts after I come inside and sit down for a few minutes, the second I try to get up I can feel it starting. I am barely able to walk to the kitchen at this point. Both my heels hurt so bad I could cry. My legs will end up aching very badly and my lower back will have me in excruciating pain. Why dont I feel all this while I'm walking? Why does it start after I have sit down for a few minutes? Also, about 5-10 minutes into my walk, every time, I will feel tingly kinda numb feeling starting from about mid-shin down into my foot and my right toe will get numb. I have tried different brands of walking shoes and gel inserts with the same results. I have tried walking while using my TENS-unit. The surface I walk on makes no difference. I end up very miserable after a walk. I thought walking was good for us after all it is exercise, we are taught from an early age that we are supposed to exercise everyday. But it shouldn't hurt this much. The pain from one evening of walking can be so bad that it will keep me up all night with little to no sleep until the next day. I usually end up soaking in a hot tub of water with Epsoms salt/baking soda trying to get relief---I haven't take a walk in 4 days because of the pain that follows. This evening I went to a dept. store w/daughter to look for her some shirts, I walked around probably for about an hour with her and by the time I got home I could barely get out of my truck cuz I was hurting so badly--same symptoms, excruciating heel pain, really bad aching legs, couldnt stand straight up cuz it was more comfortable to lean forward, same tingly mid-shin down to foot. Has anyone had this kind of pain after a walk? Any idea what could be causing this? This has been going on for the last 4-5 months. Should I just give up walking???
