Bruised Foot Pad
Go to podiatrist: A podiatrist would be able to examine your feet and determine if the motion in the ball of the foot is creating more pressure at the metatarsals. If so, there are padding/strapping that can be applied to your foot while training that can help with this. Read more
Pain in pad: This might be the result of high blood sugar levels. High blood sugars can cause foot problems. How often are you checking your blood sugar, and what numbers are you getting? Lots of doctors recommend 2 or 3 blood sugar readings each day. I don't - one check of blood sugar in the morning before breakfast and another one the next night at bed time. Then adjust dosing till your sugar levels are OK. Read more
Try new shoes: Often times something as simple as a new pair of shoes can solve this problem. Off the shelf sports orthotics or inserts are also something to consider. Any good running shoe store with trained shoe fitting staff can help you figure the best course of action in your particular case. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The pad/ball of my right foot near right toe is swollen and bruised - was doing laundry - leaned on side of foot, felt sting on bottom right pad?
Bruised=need X-ray: The big toe has a major function taking on impact after heel strike. It also in propels your gait. Very prone to getting sore and bruised. It may be due to the bruising of accessory bones called "ossicles" they are small and round to ovoid in shape. At the base of the big toe near the ball of the foot we have 2 of these bones side by side. Exam + x-rays may reveal clues or even fracture. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not really: Many cases of so-called "foot pad atrophy" pain in my opinion is not so much because of a loss of the fat pad on the forefoot but may be associated with deformities such as hammertoes, bunions and is often associated with wearing certain shoes that place too much stress on the ball of the feet ie. High heels and even flats. Wear running shoes more often and the symptoms will most likely resolve. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
