Replacement insoles: Take the insoles out of your shoes and replace them with ones that have more cushioning and support. I like spenco products. The one i recommend most is the spenco polysorb cross-trainer insole. This will give you cushioning at heel strike and help decrease the impact on your feet. It may not have an "immediate" effect though. See an podiatrist if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Plantar fibroma: If what you are referring to is in the arch of the foot, it probably is a plantar fibroma. These growths usually occur in the mid-arch of the foot and can be first treated conservatively with accommodative insoles or orthotics to offload the weightbearing of the fibroma. When offloading does not reduce the weightbearing enough, the fibroma can be surgically removed. ...Read more

Bottom of R foot just below toes feels numb. Three middle toes are numb on right foot. Slightly swollen in that area. 
this is for my husband age 46

Neuritis related.: It is always nice to know if this problem happened quickly, over night so to speak, or slowly over along period of time. With no history of acute trauma, more than likely the nerve or soft tissue, in the area, has been subtly irritated. The possibilities could be shoes, standing or any related activity. The best way to get to the bottom of the issue is to be evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Hello, I stubbed my 3 middle toes about a month ago. I thought I had a stone bruise. The bottom of my foot had a bruise and it was swollen. It started to feel better but the other day I took a step and it felt like something moved upward towards my toes

Broken bone: If you felt something move under your toes after an injury it is time for you to get an X-ray taken of your foot. You might have broken one of the long bones(metatarsal bones) which may need treatment to heal. Consult a local Podiatrist who can take an X-ray for you and get you on track to heal your foot. ...Read more

Blood clot?: Swelling of one leg only could represent a blood clot, which in some instances can break off, and clog the blood flow from the heart to the lung. Small clots are ok, but large clots can cause instant death. If this is new, seek medical attention right away. May need an ultrasound of the leg to make this determination. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I landed on my foot wrong and I thought nothing of it. Now the bottom of my foot hurts and the top is bruised and swollen.

Rice now.: Sounds like you would benefit from the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice , Compression and Elevation. Painful on the bottom and bruised on the top could mean a fracture is possible. See how it feels tomorrow. If the foot still is painful when bearing weight, then you will need an x-ray to verify possible bone trauma. I'm sure a Healthtap specialist can guide you through your care. ...Read more
