No: the navicular bone supports ur arch. U would still be putting pressure on the injured area. Stay off for as much as possible

How do I get medicine for pink eye when I am far away from home and there is no walk-in clinic available?

I have good news...: ...And bad news for you: true pink eye is caused by the cold virus (adenovirus). Being a virus, there is no proven treatment for it other than time. The typical pink eye (epidemic conjunctivitis) can last 2 weeks or more, but goes away regardless of treatment. Your best option? Artificial tear drops every 30 minutes or so have been shown to wash excess virus from the eye, speeding up healing.

Many possibilities: There are many possibilities. I'd start with making sure you have full range of motion at the hips - sometimes gentle and progressive stretching exercises can help. But you should get an evaluation from your doctor or an orthopedist of what is going on in your hips and knees.
A member asked:

I have a bad knee I could not walk two weeks ago without a lot of pain my doctor sent me for a X-ray it didn't show anything?

Cartilage: Xray doesn't show cartilage damage. If knee pain is persistent despite normal x-ray then MRI should be done to explore other possible cause.
