How fast do feet get tired when you are 55 and older

Sometimes after a long days work, my feet will sometimes say "NO MORE!"  In the hallways at work, I at the age of 58 can pass up a person at the age of 24.  But then, sometimes at the end of the day, it's the other way around.  On a Monday, it's not that bad.  But then on a Tuesday evening, then all my feet want to do is argue.  I am not sure if an MRI scan would anything suspicious inside my feet or what.

Never. Use it or lose it. Physically and mentally.

My job meant my feet were on concrete and in addition, I had to wear safety shoes.  I was on my feet a lot and the concrete was either cold in winter or hot in summer!  By the end of the day, I couldn't wait to put my feet up!  Now that I am retired, I do a lot of walking.  It is really important to get good shoes that fit right for your feet!  I also love to soak them!

I had problems with tired feet when I worked at a job that required walking all the time. Could give the MRI a try & see. Possibly a visit to a shoe store where the salespeople are trained to fit your feet with the right shoe.

I’m 51 so I don’t totally qualify here. But I hike. And I know if I’m wearing the wrong shoes, I feel it.   Maybe a new, different type of shoes?

Nope, there is a difference between age. You can't do exactly what is doing 24 years old guy.
