16 Ways To Treat Foot Pain
Food-Based Foot Pain Cures
Pour yourself a cup of tea to relax, and while drinking soak your feet in warm tea to sooth pain. Try a strong peppermint or chamomile tea. Steep four tea bags in 2 cups of boiling water. Add the brew to 1 gallon of comfortably hot water. Soak your feet for 5 minutes. Slosh your feet in the water and let the tea’s warm scent relax you. Drain the water and pour some cold water over your feet. Follow that with hot water from the tap and then more cold.
When To Visit A Doctor For Foot Pain
According to Sussman, you should definitely see a doctor if:
- You have pain in your feet that continually increases during the day.
- Your feet get to the point where you can’t keep your shoes on. You have trouble walking first thing in the morning.
Also be aware that painful burning in the feet can be a sign of poor circulation, athlete’s foot, a pinched nerve, diabetes, anemia, thyroid disease, alcoholism, or other critical problem, and always warrants a call to the doctor.
