Strep throat: Strep usually causes abdominal pain; but if he had a strep test and it is negative, likely the doctor is right and it could be hand-foot-mouth.

I have a huge bulge on my spine where the neck joins the shoulder ball of both are bulging and the top of my foot has a bulge?

Foot bulge: I agree with dr. Colen. From the standpoint of your foot, common 'bulges' may be a plantar fibroma if its on the bottom of your foot and is firm but not bony. This is a benign mass with a scar tissue like consistency. Otherwise it really depends on specifically where the bulge is located. I would go see my colleague dr. William r. Adams in paducah. ...Read more

Bone or tendon prob: Most common cause of medial foot pain and swelling is either tendonitis or partial tear of the posterior tibial tendon. Classically it hurts when you raise up on your toes. In the same area u could have a symptomatic accessory navicular bone. U need to be examined, xrayeed +- MRI to tell what problem is. The back/neck pain is probably unrelated but could be part of an inflammatory arthritis pictur. ...Read more
