I got a bad sunburn with blisters, now I can't bend knee and foot is swollen; it's difficult to walk. Knee and thigh area looks bruised.

GET CHECKED OUT!: This is concerning - you had second degree burns and now have complications of decreased range of motion, swelling and pain with weight bearing. While these may all just be results of the burn, it is also possible that there is a secondary infection, and if you ignore this at this point could turn into a disaster. Have it checked out today...... ...Read more

Pain at base of big toe. Unable to put pressure there or ball of foot w/out5/10 pain. Cant bend or extend toeWalking on side foot to compensate. Ideas?

Yikes.: It seems odd that this type of pain and restricted motion exists without some degree of swelling and/ or inflammation. At least it was not noted in your description. Clearly, something is going on. Either physical (trauma) of chemical (gout). Regardless, your condition is best treated by a direct examination that would include x-ray and possibly some blood work. ...Read more

Lower back hurts. When I stand too long or if I bend back. Pain goes down my left leg to my foot. For about a year now. Cant stand straight?

Lower back hurts. When I stand too long or if I bend back. Pain goes down my left leg to my foot. For about a year now. Cant stand straight?

Back & Leg Pain: Hello. What type of treatment have you had thus far? Any physical therapy, chiropractic, medications? Any stumbles or falls? Any family history of back issues-like spinal stenosis (narrowing around nerves or spinal cord)? X-rays would tell if you have abnormal shift of your spine when you extend it. MRI study would help tell if your discs are involved with irritating nerves in your left leg. ...Read more

Cartilage damage?: You could have an internal derangement that is causing your clicking and pain. If you haven't had it checked out yet, see an orthopedic specialist. He will need to know when the clicking occurs and what things make your knee feel worse. You may need x-rays and possibly an MRI. ...Read more

The second joint on my second toe hurts so bad when it's touched. It doesn't look red or swollen but cant bend all the way. Run regularly but no trauma.

Painful toe: Joggers sometimes get 'stress' fractures (though they are relatively longer bones of the foot). Get an X-ray. Other possibility includes tendinitis. If X-ray shows no fracture, try anti inflammatory medicine (600-800 mg Ibuprofen 3 times a ay with food) for a few days. If response is not satisfactory, see your physician. ...Read more

Foot feels like I have a tiny splinter when I step on it but I cant find anything. Can anything bad cause this sensation?

Do you ever fully recover from a foot injury? Cant stay off it.

Do you ever fully recover from a foot injury? Cant stay off it.

Depends: On the type of injury. Plantar fasciitis can become so severe that any weight-bearing inflames the area and continues the process. Then only staying off the foot will allow healing to occur. See you orthopedist or podiatrist for further care and instructions. ...Read more

When I bend downwards, I feel strong itching in my feet and can't bend more than 1 minut?

When I bend downwards, I feel strong itching in my feet and can't bend more than 1 minut?

Not flexible: This description sounds to me like you have an issue with flexibility in your hamstrings, calves, low back, or all three. This lack of flexibility will result in a metatarsalgia from driving the "balls of your feet" into the ground. Each metatarsal head has a nerve between it, so overcompression can cause nerve symptoms such as itching, burning, or tingling. ...Read more

I got bit yesterday on top of my foot by something and it looked just like a normal bite but today it's swollen and and it hurts to bend my foot when?

Try this.: Some bites are potentially more serious than others and can have serious consequences. Having said that, you first need to check and see if there a stinger or other insect part in the bite area, If so, remove it. The area should be washed with soap and water. An ice pack should be applied after applying a hydro-cortisone topical. Elevate the foot and take an anti-inflammatory such as advil. ...Read more
