I have the same problem! My feet & ankles hurt all the time. Some days worse than others. Mine is also worse in the mornings & it takes awhile for my meds to kick in before I can even walk right on them & even then I limp/walk funny. When they are not too sore, having my hubby massage lotion into them really helps.
Sometimes they get so bad that I can't even touch the back of my heels. At these times I soak my feet and rub Lavendar Chamoile lotion in & put on some warm socks. When my feet get like this I cannot wear any shoes with backs, I usually wear slippers.
When I am at work I sit at my desk and do some mild stretches with my feet. It seems to help when I get up because usually my feet are so stiff and sore that I have to stand in one place for a bit before I start walking.
I have even wrapped a heating pad around one foot at a time. (hold it in place with a large safety pin through the cloth part & wrap in a large towel) It seems silly, but it works!
Good luck with your pain! Hope you're feeling better soon!
Never regret something that made you smile!
