Burning feet and sore legs

I' m 56 yrs old. My feet burn especially my heels, and it feels like
the veins in my legs are going to snap.... very sore. When I stand
after sitting a while I battle to walk. Please help!

Dear Pinky

Its not possible for me to help without more detailed information about your medical history. Are you diabetic? Do you have a history of circulation problems, hypertension, obesity etc. This sounds like a problem that is best discussed with your doctor.

My feet are sore and hot, especially on the balls of the feet. The skin folds at the bottom of the ball are looking more torn than they should be. I do not like walking barefoot much and I use a foot scrub every day.
