Customer Question

my feet and legs are killing me by the end of the day. They hurt so bad I cannot even walk on them and bring me to tears. I went to a quick care and they said there isn't any blood clots although there wasn't any ultrasound done.
Any ideas.

Welcome to JA and thanks for asking

Since how long you have this problem?

Any swelling in the feet or legs ?

Any known medical problem or medicine you are taking ?

At age 53 you must worry about disc disease in the lower spine.

This can put pressure on the cord as well.

You need a structural exam and probably an MRI.

The ER is not a good place to get a diagnosis.

See your internist or family practice doctor for a probable referral to an orthopedist [spinal] or physical medicine doctor.

Clots do not usually cause symptoms in both legs.

You could have a muscle disease or neuropathy but in fact lower spine problems are most likely ehre.
