Foot feels like I have a tiny splinter when I step on it but I cant find anything. Can anything bad cause this sensation?

Foot feels like I have a tiny splinter when I step on it but I cant find anything. Can anything bad cause this sensation?

Splinter?: I doubt there is anything to worry about. If you don't see an open sore or sign of irritation (swelling, redness), I would expect this sensation to pass. Of course, look at your feet frequently to check for anything unusual. ...Read more

Do you ever fully recover from a foot injury? Cant stay off it.

Do you ever fully recover from a foot injury? Cant stay off it.

Depends: On the type of injury. Plantar fasciitis can become so severe that any weight-bearing inflames the area and continues the process. Then only staying off the foot will allow healing to occur. See you orthopedist or podiatrist for further care and instructions. ...Read more

Hi its my feet every now and then I get like burning feeling and get bad shooting pains wher I cant walk?

Hi its my feet every now and then I get like burning feeling and get bad shooting pains wher I cant walk?

Shooting Pains: If these pains are just in front of the heel, and worst with the first few steps after sitting for a while, it may be plantar fasciitis. Heel lifts and anti-inflammatory pain relievers such as ibuprofen can help. Burning pain not affected by walking is more typical of neuropathy. Your doctor can help sort this out. ...Read more

I am 28 and I am on my feet all day I noticed a lot of lumps on both shins and I am concerned I do not have insurance so I cant get it checked thanks?

I am 28 and I am on my feet all day I noticed a lot of lumps on both shins and I am concerned I do not have insurance so I cant get it checked thanks?

You can watch a bit: The shins or tibia bones lie just under the skin, so any irregularity of the bone can be felt as a lump just under the skin. Minor trauma to the tibias may result in such bumps. But if they are tender to touch, you have other symptoms such as rash or joint pain, you should see your doctor--a condition called erythema nodosum needs to be considered. See doc, too, if any bump enlarging. Stay well:) ...Read more

I slipped off a atep and landed on my ankle I heard a pop and pain now I cant move my foot what so ever could it be sprained?

Pop, crackle & pop.: Your description of events sound pretty convincing to me that a severe sprain has occurred. Consideration of a possible ankle fracture is also appropriate. Of course, these conditions can only be verified by having your ankle x-rayed and examined by a specialist. Meanwhile, it is best to RICE the area. Rest, Ice application, Compression applied and Elevation. ...Read more

After almost falling I've developed a fear of escalators and steep tall stairs. I tense and cant bring my foot to go on one, esp escalators by myself.

Anxiety: It sounds like you are having a reaction to a bad experience on an escalator or stairs. I would highly recommend trying to get back out on stairs or an escalator with someone you trust, and if this is not possible, then to see a therapist and work on this! ...Read more

My muscles continue to get stiff, if I sit for 30 minutes my calves n feet stiff again. When I wake from sleep my calves n feet so still cant walk?

Please seek advice o: These symptoms could be a sign of a neuromuscular condition, possibly muscle tissue alone if you have pain in the " long" muscles of the leg when at rest. Also this could be a sign of inflammatory conditions involving joints. I believe a work up should include muscle enzymes and inflammatory markers, thorough physical exam by a GP or rheumatologist ...Read more

Pain at base of big toe. Unable to put pressure there or ball of foot w/out5/10 pain. Cant bend or extend toeWalking on side foot to compensate. Ideas?

Yikes.: It seems odd that this type of pain and restricted motion exists without some degree of swelling and/ or inflammation. At least it was not noted in your description. Clearly, something is going on. Either physical (trauma) of chemical (gout). Regardless, your condition is best treated by a direct examination that would include x-ray and possibly some blood work. ...Read more
