My pinky toe, bone under pinky toe and side of foot by pinky toe has been numb for 2 months. What could be causing this?

My pinky toe, bone under pinky toe and side of foot by pinky toe has been numb for 2 months. What could be causing this?

May or may not heal.: The area you are having numbness in seems to be totally delineated by the 1st sacral dermatome. The dysfunctional nerves could be in the back's sacral area, the peroneal nerve in the knee area, the lateral plantar and/or the sural nerves in the foot. Something has disrupted the nerve impulse along this route and the result is numbness. To remove all doubt, a neurologist needs to be consulted. ...Read more

Numbness on right pinky toe and side of foot up until ankle bone. No pain at all or other discomfort. Been this way for 2 days. What do I do?

Numbness on right pinky toe and side of foot up until ankle bone. No pain at all or other discomfort. Been this way for 2 days. What do I do?

Nerve irritation.: The area you are describing seems to be describing a specific nerve route. The problem might involve irritation of a nerve in the foot. Less possibly, would involve irritation of a nerve exiting the spine in the back area. With no history of injury, look at your shoes and see if there is a possibility of the one being too tight. To remove all doubt, have the problem evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Pain in big toe mild swelling after falling down stairs. Difficulty walking (walking on side of foot). Pain wakes me and I think bone is displaced?

If you fell: Downstairs and have difficulty walking the foot likely should be xrayed. You also sound like at minimum should be walking in a surgical shoe that prevents the toe and metatatarsal joint from bending. Ice would do you well as well.

Good luck. ...Read more

Had MRI results back showed no broken bones which I already knew from xrays but does this mean it's ligaments and tendon damage as it's painful, swelling on and off and also collapsing on side of foot?

Had MRI results back showed no broken bones which I already knew from xrays but does this mean it's ligaments and tendon damage as it's painful, swelling on and off and also collapsing on side of foot?

Possibly yes: MRI can show soft tissue injury (ligaments/tendons). It would be helpful to know if your MRI mentioned injury to tendons or ligaments. Most of the time they will show "sprains" of ligaments or tendons which are "micro" tears in the fibers or ligaments or tendons. With the symptoms you are having it is very possible you may have a sprain. You should follow up with your doctor if you are not better. ...Read more

6 weeks ago fell and hurt ankle (medial side). Went to ER they said sprain. Having pain directly on bones on inside side of foot and ankle. Fracture?

Get an x-ray: Twisting ones’ ankle can lead to a sprained ankle. Often times, this may result in ligament or tendon injuries which may lead to ankle swelling, pain, and possibly instability. An x-ray of the foot and ankle will be able to assist in differentiating a sprain form a fracture. ...Read more
