Could you tell me what happens when you have calcium deposits in your feet?

Where?

Extremity-foot
First off, calcium deposits seldom form in feet, except for calcification of blood vessels. Bone deposits can develop in areas of pressure or traction from ligaments. These can hurt due to local inflammation and usually respond to relieving the formative stress.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

what could cause calcium deposits around an unborn child's heart?

ECF

Heart
Echogenic cardiac focus? This is what it sounds like. Nobody knows what they are. From my reading they seem to have no impact on the child's health once born. I have always suspected that what looks like "calcium" on ultrasound is actually tough fibrous tissue.
