Fell down a few weeks ago. Now my right foot hurts when I walk sometimes throbs. Had an X-ray done and no fractures were seen. Pain been getting wor?

Further studies: If the pain is getting worse, it would probably be wise to consider further studies. An xray is easy to take, and will pick up many fractures, but both an MRI and a ct scan are much more sensitive and can pick up things that an xray might "miss". ...Read more

Can a pregnant women take Lamisil (terbinafine) tablets to treat fungal infection of foot nails infection?

Can a pregnant women take Lamisil (terbinafine) tablets to treat fungal infection of foot nails infection?

I advise against it.: All medications may causer side effects. No one knows, for example, whether this drug might increase th risk of autism. The federal system for labeling drugs dangerous in pregnancy is poor. They up the danger level once teratogenic effects become known. Paint the toenail surface qid with decolorized tincture of iodine--a highly potent fungicide. They will grow out normal. ...Read more

Plantar Fasciitis?: If the pain is worse in the morning, making it difficult to walk, and is better after walking on it awhile or stretching out your calves, it might be plantar fasciitis. If you are a runner or participate in sports that require running or jumping, such as basketball, volleyball, or tennis, then plantar fasciitis is a good bet. Check with your orthopedic surgeon to make sure it isn't something worse. ...Read more

What is done for a stubbed big toe- if X-ray done and it is broken does it get a cast?

What is done for a stubbed big toe- if X-ray done and it is broken does it get a cast?

Broken big toe: Assuming the toe fracture does not need surgery due to a displaced fracture, a boot, crutches or surgical shoe should be adequate. Likely a walking boot (ankle high) is adequate. But, like any fracture, the more you walk and put pressure on the foot, the longer it may take to heal. ...Read more
