Hi all,
I have noticed that after doing some squats, the next day my thighs keep paining whole day. Walking becomes difficult and a little crooked. What could be the cause of this? Thanks!

You probably aren't stretching properly before and after. But the title says "pain on top of the foot". I suggest that you see a doctor, there is no way that we can diagnose you online, nor should you accept an online diagnosis.

You could also be sore. As in, you did a good workout.

.. pain on top of foot : my thighs keep paining...
I would first suggest he see an anatomy diagram.

The foot bone is most definitely not connected to the thigh bone.

By jove, you're right!

With the leg bone connected
to the knee bone,
and the knee bone connected
to the thigh bone,
and the thigh bone connected
to the hip bone.
Sorry, I couldn't resist, hadn't heard that song in years.

Have you just recently started your exercise program after a long time (years) without exercising?

When I work out (such as on a bicycle) when out-of-shape, I get an extremely painful, almost debilitating burning in my thighs the next day. This is due to a buildup of lactic acid, which is what the muscles use when they run out of oxygen.

The solution is to start off with a milder exercise regimen and work your way up as your body adapts.

You know, this could be the source of his pain.

"Doctor: there's this pain in my thigh, right above my foot."

"Hm. Let me see. Ah, there's the problem. You seem to be missing your ankle, shin and knee. Looks like a shark bite. That's gotta smart. Well, stay off it, drink plenty of liquids and call me next week if it doesn't clear up. Pip pip cheerio."

Did you try taking the needle out?

You may just be sore. If you happen to work out regularly and it happens every time you squat, you may want to see a doctor about it. You may have slightly pulled a muscle.

If nothing else, try taking it easy the next time you work out your legs. Do some leg extensions instead of squats for instance.
