    Suggest treatment for pain in the lower leg

Posted on Thu, 13 Jul 2017 in Bones, Muscles and Joints
Question: I stand on my feet 8 hours a day, and lately my feet and lower legs are painful. I have mind degenerate bone disease and do not have RA. What do you suspect could be the cause of my pain?
Answered by Dr. Chobufo Ditah 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
What are your present body weight and height?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

Degenerative bone disease would explain your pain as this is pain which generally gets worse with prolonged standing and strenuous activities.

This would be further aggravated if the body weight is too much for your height. I will better comment about this when I get the details about your weight and height. Yes, you are right, this is not a possible RA as this wouldn’t only get worse after standing for long.

Is this pain well controlled by the acetaminophen?

Hope to hear from you for more exchanges and helpful insights.
