Menopause and Hot Flashes-I got stiffness in my feet

Since I am full blown menopause there has been a lot of changes in my body. I am speaking about my feet and toes. I remember in my younger years I had “pretty feet”. I would always keep a pedicure on them weekly. I would always wear shoes in the summer months that would show off my toes and feet. Because I have an average size foot (size 7) some shoes would make my feet appear to look a little smaller.

What did I do to stop the pain?

That was then, now when I wake up in the morning stepping out of the bed my feet are stiff as a board and this feeling would  last for about 2-3 minutes. I don’t know if my circulation is off or what. As I am waiting for the relief of the stiffness I makes strong attempts to flex my feet back and forth, and as I do this for about 5-10 minutes then I start to feel the stiffness loosening up. Then I am able to stand up and walk on my feet. I found that doing this every morning has caused me to have less stiffness and I don’t have to do the flexing as long.

One thing about menopause, you are forced to get into doing a lot of stuff with your body to relieve yourself of being uncomfortable.
