Feet Hurt When Folded Or Straightened?
Tonight my name is Ana. Some months ago I felt pain in my legs when I folded or straightened !! Especially when I sit and try to get up while holding my child. I thought it was because my body was too big so I tried dieting and exercising. When I was dieting and exercising regularly, my legs didn’t hurt anymore. But when I stopped dieting and exercising the pain came back … This made me worry because my grandmother died because my aunt’s bone cancer died because of breast cancer and if I had had a blood cancer. Are these the signs of bone cancer? Or just because my body is too heavy and my legs are not strong enough to support it
Good afternoon Ana, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of pain in the legs when folded or straightened has many possible causes, especially with the information that you do have excess weight and there is a considerable history of cancer in your family. So indeed the condition can occur due to muscle injury, can be due to reduced joint fluid, inflammation of the joints, immune system abnormalities, and when it is said that the symptoms of bone cancer are also not impossible, because the symptoms of cancer are very diverse.
This can only be ascertained by gathering more information such as when you experience these symptoms, whether continuous or recurring, whatever physical activity you do, to supporting examinations such as X-rays and CT scans because if there is indeed cancer there must be an appearance through examination the.
So it is important for you to check yourself to a general practitioner or directly to a bone doctor for further examination. Because without a direct inspection, we can only guess. So if all these tests have been carried out, you will be given treatment that is appropriate to your diagnosis.
Meanwhile, in fact in any disease, including if you are in good health, the best weight is the ideal weight, because let's say your feet are not painful, you have the potential for other diseases such as diabetes, stroke and heart problems. So keep trying to have an ideal body weight, routinely exercise, avoid stress and cigarette smoke, increase consumption of vegetables and fruit, adequate rest, and make a history of cancer in your family as a motivation to obtain a much better and healthier life. So, hopefully answering your question.
