If you think it’s only the heels that hurt, think again.
A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that even when people are standing in the middle of a room, their feet still hurt.
The study, which surveyed 7,000 adults in New York City and New Jersey, also found that people with severe foot pain reported experiencing increased anxiety and fear.
While that may sound like a small difference, a small number of people actually suffer from foot pain, which has been linked to depression, anxiety and other psychological problems.
“People with foot pain are not getting enough sleep, and people with foot problems are more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression,” Dr. Shabir Ghosh, one of the study’s authors, told The New York Times.
“So these are very real, very real health effects.”
The researchers say that if we want to change the way people view foot pain in the US, we need to take a look at what foot pain actually is and how it affects people.
Here’s how foot pain is diagnosed.
Diagnosis of foot pain Many people with ankle, knee and hip pain can’t distinguish between pain and swelling, but that doesn’t mean they’re not suffering from foot swelling.
According to the American College of Sports Medicine, about 1 in 3 people with pain and foot swelling report pain, and some of those people have difficulty identifying the problem.
Dr. Robert Hickey, a physician who works at the New York University Langone Medical Center, says foot swelling and pain can be confusing.
“Foot swelling is not an indication of pain,” he told CBS News.
“If you feel like you’re getting a lot of pressure, and you’re seeing redness in your foot, that’s a sign that you’re probably swelling.
And if you’re feeling a lot swelling, that could be a sign of a foot infection.”
If the swelling is minor, like a tiny bump or an ache, it may be a symptom of a different problem.
But if it’s severe enough, and a doctor has to use an X-ray, a CT scan or other tests, it’s a good sign to diagnose foot swelling, says Dr. Hickey.
“There’s no one-size-fits-all for foot swelling,” he said.
Dr Hickey and Dr. Ghosh suggest that people who are experiencing foot swelling for the first time should take a break for a few days to let the swelling settle.
“After that, you should start to get some relief,” he explained.
The first step to addressing foot swelling is to get to know your body.
Foot swelling can be difficult to diagnose, but it can be a common problem.
“The first thing you should do is identify the specific swelling and how big it is,” Dr Hirsch said.
“That will help you determine if it needs to be addressed, and whether it’s more likely that you need surgery.”
Another way to address foot swelling in the United States is to do some research.
Dr Ghosh and Dr Hodge recommend that people look at foot swelling from multiple angles to figure out if they need more treatment.
“We need to really understand what’s going on,” Dr Ghose said.
It’s important to know what symptoms you are experiencing.
“I think the biggest misconception is that if you have foot swelling symptoms, then you’re not getting the symptoms of foot swelling you need,” Dr Schmoe said.
Foot pain is a sign, but the most important step is to treat it.
“It’s important for people to recognize that this is not a problem with the feet,” Dr Shabib said.
You may also want to visit your doctor if you notice a foot swelling on the back of your leg or in your knee, Dr Hichors said.
