Foot Ailments

Pain in your feet, ankles, or lower legs is not normal, especially when it lasts for more than a day or is accompanied by swelling. The pain you feel may be a symptom of a serious problem or it may just be related to a minor podiatric problem. Regardless, you should be examined by a doctor to determine the severity of the injury or condition.
