I have nerve damage in my toes from wearing tight shoes, no neuroma. Steroid injection didn't help or shoe inserts. Would nerve tablets help for pain
Just Shoes?: This type on condition is very difficult to assess without knowing much more about the entire clinical picture. While permanent nerve damage from just wearing "tight" shoes is not unheard of, there could be more clinical factors to be considered before suggesting "nerve" tablets are going to help. I would suggest you consult with a experienced neurologist for rooting out any underlying conditions. ...Read more

What is the name for the muscle that inserts into the foot by the 5 metatarsell as I have strained it and how can I treat it?
Strain: I believe you are talking about the peroneus brevis. It's tendon inserts into the base of the 5th metatarsal. First, try simple things like resting the foot, ice and elevation. An anti-inflammatory such as Motrin could be helpful. If the pain persists, an evaluation by a podiatrist would be helpful. You may benefit from a protective brace such as a cam walker. ...Read more

Pain to touch in arch of foot. I have flat feet and had dr scholls inserts in my shoes. Could that have caused the pain and what can I do for it?
Might need orthotics: There are a couple causes for arch pain. If the pain started soon after putting insoles in your shoes, that may be the cause. Often, I recommend breaking in insoles a few hours per day at first. This allows your foot to get used to the insoles. If this is more of a long term problem you may suffer from plantar fasciitis or a painful flat foot, and should see an orthopedist or podiatrist to discuss ...Read more

Doctor told me my arch in my left foot is collapsing, my ankle also hurts. She only offered inserts as a solution. What should I do? I run a lot.
Run, Run Runaway.: Well, it certainly is a starting point. But more than likely, you probably already knew that. Without knowing exactly what information she based that treatment on, it is difficult to day if anything more could or even should be done at this point. My suggestion is, to remove all doubt, seek a second opinion. Perhaps with a specialist that has experience dealing with runners. ...Read more

Need new orthotics!: If you used to wear them and now they are either too small or they are worn, your body is telling you something. For the pain, rub your foot in the arch area to warm it up.

Will the nuvaring be effective after the 3 week period is up before inserting it for next 3 weeks?
Yes: Removal of NuvaRing allows for withdrawal bleeding. It's meant to be removed after 3wks use. After 4wks, it's effectiveness cannot be guaranteed so you'll need to confirm that you're not pregnant before placing another one after which you'll need to use a 2nd form of contraception until it's been in place at least 7d.
