Sore Feet

Posted by Lisa T. on 11/15/00 at 14:27 (032781)

Hi
I have sore and tired feet. I work as a registered nurse aide so I'm on my feet for 8 to 10 hours a day. I think I have heel spurs but do not know I have not been to the doctor for them as yet. I have tried arch supports in my shoes and also the cushions for the heels nothing works I have tried the rolling pin under my foot also I put heet and ice packs on the heels. Nothings seems to work. I'm 5foot 5 inches tall and weight about 195lbs. Some times I don't even have to be walking on my feet and the heels hurt. Do you think I might have heel spurs and should I go to the doctor and have them looked at. I'm also 39 years old and now I'm a student in college tring for a degree in Nursing.
Thank for listening
Lisa T.
