Standing all day, Feet in agony..Help!

I have been a teacher for 13 years. I stand up or walk round nearly all day.

My feet kill at the end of every day, and it is getting worse. I have to take painkilers every night just to get to sleep. Even my toes hurt.

I don't wear killer heels, just a small heel, but by midday, they are usually starting to throb. I want to walk to work, but tried that this week, and my feet were still hurting next morning after that.

Colleagues don't seem to suffer like this. What's going on?

WHat happens when you wear flat shoes?

Same, even in bare feet at home, if I'm on my feet all day they stil hurt.

I try to change between lowish heel and flat heels. Never wear anything above 2"

Hmmm. Might a visit to a chiropodist be in order to see if it can be treated?
