I’ve only been working at amazon for a month now and understood a lot of my pain was due to soreness and my body adjusting . However the pains in both my feet became unbearable to the point I wasn’t doing my job correctly and was spoken to about it ! I am a stower At amazon I pack items from very small to larger than me in a bin a pod brings to my station . Sometimes I’m squatting sometimes I’m climbing a ladder but I am always on my feet for most of my day. I went to amcare on 10/14 and received pain pills medical tape and biofreeze .. it gave temporary relief but it didn’t really matter because my work shift was 10 hours with me being able to sit for about only a half hour. Serval managers saw my horrible limp and I discussed my pain with them including my own manager. I was told To just soak after my shift and try to tough it out. I had already shown poor results in my quality and productivity i was advice to get my numbers up . I finally couldn’t take it and went to my own doctor And got x rays . It looks like I have plantar fasciitis and it wasn’t just soreness from not being use to the job . I have missed the past 2 days with no time to cover it and feel I may lose my job
