Can you get a stone bruise on the corner of your big toe? How can I treat it cause it hurts real really really bad! : (

Might be easy to fix: Hard to tell from your description, but this could be a "subungual hematoma, " or a collection of blood under a fingernail or toenail after you've bashed it. Usually it's just a drop of blood, but it can really hurt! A doctor or nurse could show you how to drain the blood and relieve the pain (but not all nurses know how). Of course, you should be sure you didn't fracture the toe. ...Read more

I have pain in the heel of my foot. It feels like its bruised and I am walking on stones. What should I do?

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.

No infection & no visible stones, painful back radiates 2 front which feels like bruised kidneys after wards. Starts 20m after salad lasts 3hrs?

Back and abd pain: If your docs have ruled out any kidney stone or bladder infection, i'd be curious if they checked your gallbladder for gallstones. I'd also be curious if they thought this could be from gastritis, an ulcer, or hiatal hernia. An ultrasound can help with looking for gallstones. H.Pylori testing and endoscopy could look for ulcers. A visit to a gastroenterologist might be helpful. Best of luck! ...Read more

Here are some...: If you've been evaluated with detailed Hx, physical exam, and imaging studies, and reported having kidney stone, the diagnosis is correctly established. But note: the combination of intermittent pain and seeing rbc or wbc doesn't say you got infection.
