Feel Like Electrocuted On Your Feet When Walking?
Good afternoon doctor,
Hello Albart, thank you for the question.
The sole of the foot is painful, hot, aching, especially when standing or walking is mostly caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia that connects the heel to the toe. This disease is called plantitis fascitis. This complaint arises usually because of too much pressure on the soles of the feet. But it can also be caused by other diseases, such as gout arthritis or gout, metatarsalgia, muscle sprains, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis / inflammation of the joint cavity, joint inflammation, injury to the ligaments, etc. Some factors increase the risk of experiencing complaints like this include:
Obesity or excess weight
Sports that put a lot of weight on the heels
Foot deformities, such as flat feet with no arches
Certain professions that require a long standing
Types of shoes, for example high heels
Other diseases, such as ankylosing spondylitis
Eat foods that contain lots of purines, etc.
If complaints are felt to be disturbing you should consult your doctor so as not to cause complications such as back injury, piggul, knee, and leg, the doctor will conduct questions and answers about complaints, assess risk factors, conduct physical examinations, and some supporting examinations if needed such as laboratory examinations, examinations X-ray, etc. Handling will be adjusted to the cause. Your doctor may prescribe oral medicines or anti-inflammatory injections in the area of pain, and may also recommend the use of prosthetics and physiotherapy. Some things you can do at home to reduce pain include:
Cold compresses on the affected area
Take pain relievers on the market, such as paracetamol
Use elastic bandages to reduce movement and reduce pain
Use thick and soft footwear
Control risk factors as mentioned above
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those that are low in purine when caused by gout (uric acid is normally below 6 in women and under 7 in men)
Sufficient fluid needs
Avoid stress, cigarettes, and alcohol
Thus, hopefully useful ..
