Tired Feeling in Feet


Every morning I am woken early by feet discomfort, in that my feet have a very tired and stiff feeling to them – it is as if I have been climbing a mountain. This tiredness and stiffness has, recently, been spreading up my legs, often during the bulk of the day. I am 27 and there is no reason, from a work and exercise point of view, why I should be experencing this discomfort. My boyfriend wonders whether it is caused by a lack of salt in my diet, so I have been having extra salt of late, but this does not appear to have solved the problem.


  1. I agree that this would be unusual at your age. I recommend you see either an internist or rheumatologist for further work up.
