Foot Pain A Week After Being Stepped On
I was put in a boot a week ago after tarsal tunnel release. New bruising on side and under arch now that I'm walking. Is this normal?
Stepped: Usually not. But, if it was hard enough, you may have an injury needing attention by a podiatrist or your pcp. It may be just a contusion (blunt injury) with residual pain. If it continues the same for another week and you can't walk on it, get some help. Try ice and rest. You might want to try some Aleve (naproxen) or Motrin also to decrease the soreness due to the injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fell sideways on foot and a week later still hurts walking on it. Swells slightly after walking for a long time also?
Ankle sprain : Most likely, your fall resulted in a sprain, and fracture is much less likely but always possible. Sprains are a soft tissue injury that always seem to take longer to heal than they should. Healing requires rest, ice would have been helpful at first but too late for that now, compression and elevation. An ace bandage can help you remember to stay off your foot. See a doctor if it does not improve ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was on cast nov 17, until dec 17 for a oblique fracture on tibia. Started running a month ago and my ankle still hurts as of this day. No therapy was required.. After running for 15 minutes it hurts.
See your surgeon: Again best option is to see your treating orthopedist... Your fracture undoubtedly healed but during casting and 'boot' or cam walker use your ankle was immobilized . You may be having pain because of ankle stiffness or because you began running too quickly or aggressively on bone that is not ready for it( disuse osteopenia can develop even in young adults after tibia fractures). See your ors. Gl! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I fell 6 days ago landing on my forearm by my elbow. It bruised significantly. Now it is a burning pain w/ a lump by the bruise. Hand numb at times?
Ulnar nerve: There is a nerve right by the elbow-the ulnar nerve that can be injured. The bruise itself may be a hematoma that can cause pressure or irritation of the nerve. That should get better over time. Numbness going into the 4th and 5th fingers would be indicative of injury/irritation of the ulnar nerve. The natural history is that it should get better over a few weeks. If not, see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been doing a patio the last 2 weeks and on Thursday this pain come in my heel on the right foot and when I rest it for a short it hurts to walk ?
Plantar fasciitis?: Hello, your symptoms sound like they could be the result of a very tight heel cord. We call this plantar fasciitis. This responds to stretching the heel cord and other conservative measures, such as using a heel cup shoe insert, rolling a frozen golf ball with your heel 15 minutes at a time, and massage. See a doctor for further diagnosis and treatment, or a referral to a podiatrist if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Joint and bone pain a week after wasp stings I had 8 stings 4 of which were on my arm and still pain a week afterwards?
Ouch! I feel for you: See your Dr for help w/ this. You might be experiencing allergic reactions to the stings on top of their own impact. An exam may lead to medications that will fight the inflammatory response and other benefits too. Obviously, try to avoid that sort of exposure in the future. Best! ...Read more

Played basketball in awful shoes. Didn't feel pain during game. After had pain on ball of foot and bruise color on top of foot. Can I go for a run?
Bruising = injury: Bruising is the visible sign of underlying bleeding. In the foot, this could be bony bleeding from a fracture, or soft tissue bleeding from a ligament or muscle. An orthopaedic evaluation and likely X-rays is warranted to make the diagnosis and be sure you do not do any further damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
