I was wondering what kind of shoes do you wear? Not to long ago my feet and legs would hurt so bad I could barley walk to my car after work without crying before I got to it.

I was on the sales floor all day long at work but my feet would start hurting within the first hour. I didn't know how long I could go on that way, the pain was unbearable and I had it everyday I worked.

My husband bought me every different pair of tennis shoes, walking shoes, flats available on the market, paying up to three hundred dollars a pair but nothing worked. I was at my wits end and was ready to throw in the towel then one day I received a pair of high top boots I had ordered.


The minute I slid my foot into that boot was the very last day in my life my feet hurt. I could even work a eleven,twelve hour day and not even remember I had feet. Those shoes were a blessing. The brand was Sketchers but I really don't think the name of them was what helped.

I think it was the fact that they gave my feet the support they needed but wasn't getting. The boots felt so good I even slept in them a couple of times. You might try some shoes that have some real support to them, it might be what you really need to stop your pain.

Go to a Podiatrist. They can see why your circulation is bad and perhaps refer you to a vascular surgeon. Please go don't wait.


You can LOSE your FEET! My daughter is a podiatric surgeon and works with poor circulation issues. I used to be a Nurse assistant and worked in a rehabilitation center with people who had lost their feet.

It's not a good idea to take anything orally (no matter how harmless it might seem to be to take) before consulting a doctor especially since poor circulation, especially in the feet and hands, is generally caused by an underlying medical condition.

In the meantime, here are some suggestions of what to do to improve circulation. They are the same things a couple of my family members and friends who have underlying medical conditions use to help improve their circulation.

In addition to what is mentioned at the above link they also sometimes soak their feet in warm water and get foot massages.


Back to the subject of supplements. There are supplements that help to improve blood circulation but you should have a blood test done first and take only the supplements your doctor recommends for you after he/she reviews the test results. Even supplements can affect how well some prescription medications will work. Supplements can also cause more bad than good depending on your underlying health problem.

One more thing. Sandy mentioned well fitting supportive shoes and that is indeed important. Another item that can be restrictive to circulation is too tight fitting clothing.
