Sudden sharp shooting pain started in arch of left foot & spread to left ankle.  No pain 3 hours ago after Zumba pain started 1 hour after sitting?

Strain vs. sprain: The central arch is called a Fascia with Plantar Fasciitis being the common chronic "heel spur syndrome". Often, after strenuous activity, foot structures may be strained. A sprain would be an acute sudden onset pain whereas a strain may hurt later after activity. If tendinitis becomes chronic then activities will be limited. RICE therapy with ace compression, ice and elevation should help. ...Read more

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

Lower abdoman right side pain after hysterectomy! three weeks post sugery, only hurts while walking.?

Well: Its probably muscular. Are you having to urinate more? It could be the bladder. Take it easy, sometimes people do too much. It's unlikely due too infection this far out but fever is a sign to go see your doc. Anyway try 2 aleve (naproxen) 2 x per day if u can, add it to your meds but not if taking ibuprfin or silvia's drugs. This will likely help but go in if getting worse, fever, urination problems, etc. ...Read more

Discectomy L4 L5 three months ago. I had almost no leg pain after surgery. Last week severe pain came back down my leg could this be nerve damage?

Discectomy L4 L5 three months ago. I had almost no leg pain after surgery. Last week severe pain came back down my leg could this be nerve damage?

Nerve pain: You need to see your spine surgeon again. It is most likely nerve irritation, that could be treated with an epidural injection and conservative care. But, it could be a re-herniation of your disc. Important to rule-out new neurological changes. Your surgeon might decide to get a new MRI after they perform a physical exam. ...Read more
