I recently accepted a full-time retail job which requires me to be on my feet 8-10 hours a day, non-stop. During the transition from part-time to full-time, I worked both jobs to the tune of 65 hours or more a week. Now my feet are in agony. I barely make it through each shift and standing in one spot is almost unbearable. I limp home to painful heels, the soles of my feet burning, with the pain often so intense its difficult to let my feet touch the bed. After 2 days rest, my feet are still in pain. I’m concerned my feet are inflamed, but it will be 2-3 months before I can see a podiatrist. If there is inflammation, what can I do to treat it at home with what’s available over the counter? Also, what type of shoes would you recommend? I’ve bought several pairs, some very expensive, none of which seem to be the answer to long hours on my feet. Should I buy walking or running shoes? I’m not diabetic, but would those type of shoes be a better option? I’m lost, please help.
