Have it evaluated: Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as, infection, tendonitis, arthritis, stress fracture, nerve irritation, retained foreign body, bone tumor, or a cyst. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Heel Pain (Definition)

Is most commonly caused by an inflammation of the plantar fascia (plantar fasciitis), but by no means is it the only cause. There are many, many things that can cause your heel to hurt, and the only way to find out which one it is is to visit a podiatrist or orthopedist. A good history and physical together with x-rays and sometimes an MRI ...Read more

Bone bruise on shin 11 days later still severe bruising that has moved to around ankle and bottom of foot. Is this normal?

Bone bruise on shin 11 days later still severe bruising that has moved to around ankle and bottom of foot. Is this normal?

Yes: Yes. Gravity takes small collections of blood 'downhill' w/ time. Especially on the tibia (shin bone) where the discoloration is plain to see because of minimal muscle/ soft tissue to 'cover' it. If you are concerned see your MD. Best of luck...! ...Read more

Under lots of stress for months, and had a panic attack. Bottom of foot is vibrating now; weakness and tingling in hand, bruise-like pain in arm. Help!

Get checked: Although anxiety can present with severe and real physical symptoms, other physical causes of these symptoms have to be ruled out so we are not treating one part of the problem, or the wrong problem altogether. When symptoms are unilateral, (on one side) there is more compelling reasons to have a thorough evaluation by ur dr., please see your doctor for a proper assessment. Good luck. ...Read more

Wart removed from bottom of foot 3months ago, it grew back. Still hurts when touched, now there's a tingling sensation through foot and toes. What is this?

Warts: It is a big problem. You try to remove the, spray them, kill them but yes, most of them regrow. And they can go deeper to put pressure on the nerves and cause pain on pressure or that numb, tingling sensation. Talk to your doctor and you can be sent either to a dermatologist or a podiatrist to see if they can remedy that. ...Read more

What is the reason for having severe heel pain and burning sensation on the foot?

Plantar fasciitis.: The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis: an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that helps hold up the arch of your foot. It attaches to your heel bone, and is usually the most painful for the first few steps in the morning, or after sitting a long time and then standing quickly. Check with your doctor to rule out nerve damage. ...Read more

F/U prev (?)...l4 collapse w/o herniation, 2 days post epdrl, (L) leg numb when walking more than a few feet, bottom of foot tickle sensation. Worry??

Not if present prior: If the symptoms are similar to prior to epidural steroid injection, then no need to worry. If they are new, the injection may have irritated a nerve specifically S1 nerve. Even then unless you have horrible and intractable pain, I would simply watch it. Most likely will slowly go away. If terrible pain, see you spine surgeon and think of repeat MRI of lumbar spine. ...Read more

Is my foot drop coming back? The tops of my feet seem to have a slight burning or numbing sensation, and I am expeiencing pain in my heels. The heel pain is only after I have been off my feet for awhile and then get up to walk to another room. Its is hard

I: I think you have two separate, unrelated problems.

The heel pain you're describing is called post-static dyskinesia. In english, pain after rest, where that first step in the morning is the killer, and as you walk, it seems to dissipate... Until you rest again, and get up, and then the whole thing starts all over. This is a hallmark for plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of a ligament on the bottom of your foot that starts in the heel bone, extends across your arch, and inserts into the metatarsal heads. It's very common and is treated by steroid injections, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, stretching and night splints. Surgery to cut the plantar fascia works, but it is almost never needed, since plantar fasciitis usually responds very well to conservative treatment.

Plantar fasciitis is not associated with numbness or burning, especially on the top of the foot. These sort of symptoms are more associated with a nerve issue, like tarsal tunnel syndrome or some sort of peripheral nerve entrapment. I'm not sure why you developed a drop foot in the past, but a drop foot is usually caused by some kind of nerve impingement higher up in the leg, or even the low back, like a herniated disc.

There are also some systemic diseases that can produce muscle weakness to the point where one develops a drop foot, some of which can be serious.

I would start by going to an orthopedic surgeon and get examined, especially with some simple neurological tests like reflexes, muscle strength testing and tests of sensation. These will usually point your doctor in the right direction. If it appears the origin of the nerve impingement is your lower back, an MRI would show a disc herniation. An EMG (electromyography) and an ncv (nerve conduction velocity) can disclose a nerve entrapment, like tarsal tunnel, and a muscle biopsy can diagnose other more significant issues.

Hope this helps. Good luck! ...Read more

Mysterious bruising on feet my husband has bruising on his feet-the bottom heel and alongside the big toe and on some of his toes but did nothing to bruise them. What can cause this?

Mysterious bruising on feet my husband has bruising on his feet-the bottom heel and alongside the big toe and on some of his toes but did nothing to bruise them. What can cause this?

Chances: Chances are this has nothing to do with the feet, but more a problem with blood clotting. It may be showing up in the feet because feet take more of a daily pounding than the rest of us.

I would recommend he go to his primary care physician, who will undoubtedly order some blood tests and see if he has some kind of coagulation issue. ...Read more

Pain in the back of my heel when I walk. Had plantar fasciitis before but that pain was bottom of the foot heel pain. This is in the back of my heel?

Compensation..: It sounds like you may be compensating for the fasciitis problem by lifting your heel. This lifting could be causing the Achilles tendon pain. You need to have your foot evaluated for a mechanical solution. ...Read more

I have tried new orthotics (temporary), but I get burning on the bottom of my feet. Because of heel pain, I can't go back to the old ones. Plz advise.

Further examination.: It sounds like you need to see a Podiatrist so you can get to the bottom of your problem. There are a lot of questions that need to be asked if it is "heel pain" or plantar fasciitis. Add stretching, ice at night and keep shoes on. If no better, see a Podiatrist. Here is some one you can see,,,,,

I think I may have bruise the bottom heel of my foot, it hurts when I walk/apply pressure, I'm a walker to school so it hurts more, what should I do?

Hard to heal heels.: If you think that it is bruised because of a specific action that led you to that conclusion, that's good. Now you know exactly what is to be treated. If the bruise theory is pure guess and has no basis in fact, well, not so good. Heel pain always takes longer to resolve when use of the heel is not reduced or eliminated. This means no excessive walking or standing until it resolves. See your doc. ...Read more

Heel Pain: What you describe could be related to infection or inflammation. If it is infection, it must be treated immediately with proper antibiotics. Was there an injury? Maybe a puncture wound? If it is caused by inflammation, this would be treated with anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or others. Types of inflammation include gout, bursitis, arthritis, fasciitis and others. ...Read more

Experiencing bruise-like pain on the bottom of my heel for past 3 days upon weight bearing. No swelling, bruising, inflammation, etc.

I've rolled my ankle several times and two time it was severe and swelled up to a baseball size wth bruising aroun bottom outside part of foot. Isitbad?

Not necessarily: Ankle sprains are a tearing of the ankle ligaments which have a good blood supply and swell alot. Swelling/bruising occurs over the top/outside of the foot and ankle. It generally migrates to the foot and toes. A key thing is how long it takes to improve. Ankle sprains improve quickly, 1-2 wks. Treat first with rice and nsaid. If no improvement in 1-2wks, call pcp. Recurrent sprains can be issue. ...Read more
