People tell me I need to exercise. Walking is exercise and shouldn't be that much of a strain on your body. But it is on mine. The more I walk, the more pain I have. Again, there is the lower back pain. But I also have these pains in my shins. It's like my muscles aren't long enough, there's no other way to explain these pains. It goes all the way up to my knees. It doesn't get better at all, it only gets worse. The more I walk, the worse it gets. My calves always feel heavy. I'm glad I don't have any pains at night.
I have around 45 pairs of shoes, but not one pair is good enough to relieve the strain on my foot soles. My foot soles burn and are overheated most of the time. I get blisters and calluses on my foot soles and the only time they don't hurt, is at night, when I'm in bed. It feels like little cuts in my foot soles, but there aren't any. My feet feel "puffy and bloated", but they aren't swollen. Tests are negative: my diabetes has not affected my feet nor my legs in any way, meaning I have no diabetic neuropathy. Then what is causing that pain??? I do not want to take pain relievers all the time, because I hate pills and I do not want to get addicted to pain relievers. But at some point, you just have to take them to get through the day... And I have reached that breaking point. Walking at a slow paste is not that painful, but keeping up with other people is just horrific. Being overweight is not helpful at all. If only someone could tell me how to get rid of this nuisance..
