Up or down bend.: It is quite possible that you injured the toe and were unaware of the injury. This could be a low grade injury to any one or several areas of the proximal phalynx of the third toe. Included, but not limited to are the tendon, bone and capsule. Discoloration and swelling are signs of a more severe problem. If this persists, a visit to your doctor may be necessary to sort things out. ...Read more

I've got a hard bump on the side of my finger that I suddenly felt when writing. Do you know what this could mean?
Benign: Hi SMatthews, Sorry to hear that you have been worried. Based on your description, it sound like it is nothing to worry about. If it is a pressure point where you normally grip the pencil or pen, it is probably just a callus. Rest on that area or loosening your grip on the pencil will help it disappear. It will likely be there for at least a few weeks, even with rest. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Stop pulling...: Just a little more clarity is needed. When you pull down on it, where exactly does it hurt? Exactly what are you pulling down on? Is the pain more on the foot or on the outside of the ankle? Is there any swelling or bruising.? It sounds as though a ligament was sprained or bone was cracked.

It : It sounds like you're supinating, which is typically associated with a high arch foot structure. Folks with this type of foot don't make complete footprints in water when they get out of the shower. You only really see the sides of the feet. Such a foot structure is fairly rigid, and lacks the shock-absorbing component of a more flexible arch. Your body tries to compensate for this structural imbalance by overusing muscles to try to stabilize your feet during the gait cycle, which leads to muscle fatigue. A podiatrist would be able to give you a biomechanical examination of your lower extremities and diagnose which muscles are being overworked. In addition to stretching exercises and some shoe recommendations, most patients with such an imbalance do well with a pair of biomechanical orthotic devices which are worn inside the shoes and taken from shoe-to-shoe. Also, try not to "think" about where your feet are, how you're walking and such. You can't out-think a walking pattern, and you'll only get a headache. Hope this helps. Feel better. ...Read more
