I'm still experiencing pain,tingling,pins & needles & burning from a 5th metatarsal spiral fracture 4mths from injury date. Pain in ankle + fibula als?
Delayed healing.: All your symptoms are subjective in nature. I think knowing objective symptoms such as swelling, angular deformity or discoloring might contribute to understand just what the problem is. Fifth metatarsal fractures are not the easiest to heal even under perfect circumstances. Radio-graphic evaluation might be needed to see if there is a delayed healing of the bone or just a post fracture neuritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fracture of metatarsal base in foot & sprain on 12/16/2012. Put in hard cast until 1/30/2013. Still have bruise on top of foot. Normal?
Injury: The energy that fractured the bone also injures the tissue around the bone. The first process of repair in the body is inflammation and fractures also bleed form the bone. Both of these processes result in swelling at the site of injury. Swelling should diminish with time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Heel spur on back of foot &below back of foot. Achilles tendinitis visible bump on the side opposite of the ankle. Been years. Pains unbearable. Help?
Sick Achilles.: Your comments sound like the findings of a previous x-ray exam. I'm not sure what is meant by "bump on the opposite side of the ankle". If it is in the Achilles tendon, then extreme pain, could make sense. It sounds as though there is something amiss with your Achilles tendon. It would make sense to immobilize the ankle, and begin non-weight bearing until tendon imaging studies can be performed ...Read more

Neurogenic pain.: Sharp, shocky type pain located in and around the toes are almost always due to a nerve being irritated. The goal is to identify the exact location of the irritation and eliminate it. The cause could be underlying bone or cyst causing irritation to the nerve and the irritation has reached the point that pain is caused for protection. Seeing a specialist is the first step toward relief. ...Read more
