Plantar faciitis: What you describe sounds like plantar fasciitis- a condition where the sole of the foot by the heel is inflamed. Typically the first step of the day feels like a nail driven into the heel. Stretching helps, as do night splints. However other disorders (tarsal tunnel and stress fractures) can present the same way. An orthopedist specializing in foot and ankle can sort these out and start therapy. ...Read more

Leg was asleep and I was passed out, smoke alarm went off and startled me so I stood up, now my left foot hurts when I walk. Pinched nerve?

Leg was asleep and I was passed out, smoke alarm went off and startled me so I stood up, now my left foot hurts when I walk. Pinched nerve?

Need clarification: When you said passed out did you mean you were unconscious or were you deeply asleep? If you fell unconscious, you may have had a seizure or a mild stroke, if this is the case you should see your doctor for further evaluation, if you were simply deeply asleep, you may had stayed too long on one position which decrease circulation to that leg and felt a tingling sensation after you woke up. ...Read more

My left foot hurts outside of the 5th metatarsal. It hurts to walk but after ice & using foot massager it feels better. It feels better after I run.

My left foot hurts outside of the 5th metatarsal. It hurts to walk but after ice & using foot massager it feels better. It feels better after I run.

Peroneal Tendonitis: The Peroneus Brevis muscle attaches to the base of the 5th metatarsal and often is the problem with pain in that area of the foot. Ice and massage lowers inflammation and loosens up the tendon. It usually will ge worse with first steps after sitting awhile or sleeping all night. Running probably warms the muscle/tendon up and increases bloodflow which would then make if feel better. ...Read more

NEED FOR SUPPORT!: Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! There are many possibe reasons (plantar fascitis leaps to mind) that you may have pain in the heels, but try arch supports like spenco polysorb (http://www. Spenco. Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb) and otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve). If these don't help, see a podiatrist. ...Read more
