Good afternoon, my doctor mia. Age 31 I want to ask why when I sit down, my legs are folded, it hurts when I stand up? I can’t sit long with my legs folded, I have to straighten my legs. And the heel of my foot hurts when I wake up? Thank you doctor for the answer …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, do you have a history of injury to your leg before, whether there is swelling or redness in your joints, whether the pain you feel when you stand feels in the joints, muscles, or bones of your feet, what which is exactly how you feel when you sit with your legs folded?
There are many possible causes for a person to experience pain in the legs when standing, including:
joint disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint injury, etc.
disorders of the bone such as fractures or broken / fractured bones, tumors or infections of the bones
muscle disorders such as muscle cramps, muscle injuries due to sports or accidents, muscle weakness due to certain diseases
other disorders of connective tissue around the joints, muscles, and bones, such as tears in tendons, tears in ligaments, bursitis
neurological disorders such as a history of stroke, pinching of the spinal cord due to various causes
If indeed this limits your daily activities, you should consult directly the condition of your feet to the orthopedic doctor. An orthopedic doctor can do a physical examination directly on your feet, and plan additional examinations such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRI if necessary. For now, try not to sit on the floor with your legs bent (straighten your legs or sit in a chair only), try doing light exercise to strengthen your leg muscles such as walking, jogging, swimming, or biking. To help reduce pain, try compressing your aching feet with warm compresses, and taking medications such as paracetamol. Try to always wear shoes that are comfortable for your feet, avoid using shoes with high heels for a while.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
