How Do I Know If I Have A Stress Fracture In My Heel And How Do They Treat It
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
Symptoms and Imaging: Stress fractures usually cause pain, but may also cause swelling and discoloration. The nature of stress fractures can make them very hard to identify on x-rays, but some may be apparent based on their size or phase in healing. Larger stress fractures or those that have had some to start healing are often the ones that can be seen with x-ray. The most specific test for a stress fracture is a mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How do you know if your insain when i think of death i know you can but i can't believe it. Ill try to explain somthing and for get in the middle of it. I talk to my self in my head. Its not a big deal if i see somthing get hurt unless I have somthing to
I : I am somewhat confused by your question and i assume that you may be feeling confused too. If you are consistently thinking about death or other people or animals getting harmed, this is not healthy. If you talk to yourself non-stop, that may be you thinking things through. If you are hearing an actual voice that is coming from inside your head or you are hearing voices external to your head (when there is no one there, or there is no radio or tv that you are hearing) that may be a more serious issue. If you have not seen a doctor or behavioral health professional, i suggest you do this and pose the question about your sanity to that provider. I wish you well in getting the answer you are searching for. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: There is no non-operative cure, but several things may alleviate symptoms and halt progression: wide, low healed shoes or custom made shoes; orthoses to improve support and alignment; night splinting to improve toe alignment, stretching to maintain joint mobility; bunion pads to decrease irritation; application of ice after activity to decrease inflammation; analgesics. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a sprained left foot, in the area of the third metatarsal. I want to know what I can do and how long should I wait to exercise.
Rest, ice, compress: The standard treatment for a sprain is to rest from aggravating activity, ice, compress,and elevate to reduce swelling. You should use crutches and keep weight off of it until bearing weight is no longer painful. Ice at least twice/day for 15-20 minutes to help decrease pain & swelling. Compress with a wrap, etc. Elevate it above the level of your heart (i.e. lay flat w/foot up). NSAIDs for pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on cause.: But you need a standing pelvis x-ray to make sure the joint is not worn. If not, i will inject the hip, place the patient on nsaids and exercises. But make sure it is hip pain. Hip pain is not in the buttock area but in the groin and can go down the anterio-lateral aspect of the thigh to just above the knee. If not there, it is not hip. My patients more often than not do not have "hip" pain! ...Read more

Stress Fracture???: It could be a fracture (broken bone) a sprain (torn ligaments) or a strain (stretched out ligaments). Have a physical exam by a podiatrist to make sure which one it is and follow the treatment recommendations. Sometimes, just a compressive wrap is needed, maybe a splint or a walking boot. It's tough to say exactly without an exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
