Not walking enough?
Sat, 04-07-2012 - 4:00pm

As of lately I've done nothing but sit on my butt at my computer and chill online while watching TV. But I've noticed my left leg/foot hurts and when I walk sometimes my foot or toes has a stinging little pain. So whats wrong with my leg/foot is it because I don't walk enough or what?

Hi napy, sorry to hear about your leg and foot pain. I'd check with a doc if I were you just to be on the safe side to make sure the stinging isn't some indicator of another problem.

Have you tried walking to see if it helps? I recently was having a lot of back pain and I increased my walking and it seems to help me. We have a Walking board here at iVillage if you're interested in joining the group for some motivation and support. :-)
