Ask A Doctor - why do my feet hurt? - DesiMD Healthcare Services


I've been having a lot if anxiety lately due to changes in my body. lately it's been my feet hurting at work and when I wake up in the morning they are tingly but then it goes away. when I'm at work they just ache and hurt. I also have a rapid heartbeat when I wake up from naps and sometime when I wake from sleeping at night. I've had a lot of other things like tight chest pain but those have gone for now. every time something new happens, more anxiety is piled on. do you know what this could be? - Asked by t l on 04-Nov-2014 00:42:55
