I have a desk job during the day which requires a lot of sitting but I do get up and down all day. At night though, when relaxing in the evening, I sit in a recliner and after getting up my legs and feet hurt to walk. Any thoughts on what this could be?
I am sorry that you are experiencing pain in your feet. I know how uncomfortable it can be. This has happened to me for years and many of my friends. I think it is a normal reaction.
Your muscles, tendons and ligaments are just fatigued. At least that's my opinion. Sometimes I can barely walk the first few feet when I get up from a sitting position. You might want to try a warm foot soak.
Others will post with their thoughts and opinions.
