I am 43, overweight. I am having a peculiar problem that after waking up from sleep my feet (bottom, near ankle on foot) aches if I walk. This reduces as the day progresses. If I sit on a chair with legs hanging for some time the same thing happens. However nothing happens if my legs rest on the ground while sitting. Feel confused, please help.
