I sprained my ankle SAT. It swelled up on top of foot & in front of ankle bone. I RICEd it and no more swell.. when i walk it makes/feel big pop?

Popping with sprain: One of the hardest things to do after an ankle sprain is to eliminate the swelling. Deep swelling can linger for an average 4 months post sprain, and this can cause a popping sensation. I like RICE, especially twice daily 15 minute ice packs and once daily contrast bathing. If the popping does cause pain, then definitely see a specialist. ...Read more

I have screws and plates in my right ankle and i feel something on top of foot that may be a screw or bone fragment i had the surgery last october. Is it possible that it could be a screw? It hurts and aches. It only got worse yesterday when i twisted it.

I have screws and plates in my right ankle and i feel something on top of foot that may be a screw or bone fragment i had the surgery last october. Is it possible that it could be a screw? It hurts and aches. It only got worse yesterday when i twisted it.

Very possible: It's not all that uncommon to get painful hardware which if you feel something hard right under the skin it could be that and fairly simple to see on x-ray so see your surgeon. Other possibility is nerve entrapment. ...Read more

I have a bone infection in my foot, and nasty yellow pus coming from top of foot. What can cause this?

Osteomyelitis : Bone infection or osteomyelitis can happen due to different causes, stepping on rusty nail can do it, or if you are diabetic any foot sores, abrasions or wounds can go deeper into tissues and get into the bones due to lower immune response, and vascular changes from high blood sugars. In any case if it's a bone infection, you can lose your foot unless it is treated properly, make sure you go to dr. ...Read more

Burning top of foot near big toe where stretched nerve years ago after broken ankle. Also bone spurs in ball of foot. What to do for burning pain?

Symptomatic : If you don't have gout or active arthritis, then quite likely you have nerve pain. For that, you can try several things: such as liniments, Lidoderm patches, or anticonvulsants--which are good for chronic nerve pain. ...Read more

3 1/2 weeks ago broke 4th metatarsal nondisplaced. In walking boot. Yesterday walked a lot & today top of foot is sore. Could I have displaced the fractured bone by wearing the walking boot too long?

Unlikely based on: time already passed since diagnosis and you were wearing the walking boot. It justs sounds like you are appropriately sore due to the time on it. If it does not improve with some elevation and rest overnight see your physician is symptoms are bothersome but unlikely anything else needs to be done. ...Read more
