I have problems with my legs. I'm very young and i'm feeling excruciating pain in my legs. I have pain in my knees, shins, heel (anterior and posterior), and my feet (toe joint next to my big toe joint and the tendon that connects my pinky toe on top of t

It's : It's always a challenge trying to give specific answers without the benefit of an examination or the ability to ask you specific questions. That being said, the fact that you can run probably excludes any vascular issue like poor circulation (which is unlikely in a younger person). Knowing you have flat feet, and given the widespread involvement that is limited to only your lower extremities, the first thing i would investigate is a biomechanical cause for your symptoms. If your foot structure is such that it's causing your leg muscles to overwork in an effort to compensate for the structural issues, that most certainly can cause all sorts of muscle fatigue, heel pain, shin splints, low-grade tendonitis, etc. I would recommend seeing a podiatrist and get a biomechanical examination. Orthotics, either a good over-the-counter kind, or a custom molded pair will improve your symptoms dramatically. Also, needless to say, make sure you take enough time to stretch before and after each run. Good luck. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Any ideas why my big toe on my left foot feel like the joints grinding when i lift it?

Any ideas why my big toe on my left foot feel like the joints grinding when i lift it?

Maybe it is: You may have a condition called hallux limitus where the joint range of motion is limited due to bony spurring or bone grinding on bone. Treatment may be a cheilectomy or shaving away of bone. If the damage to the joint is more severe options include a joint fusion, implant or resection of bone, see a foot doc and have xrays taken for evaluation. ...Read more

A contusion : Can certainly cause the symptoms you feel. The numbness can be from "whiplash" of the digital nerves. I would ice the toe and try not to step on it. Keep in mind you could of broken the toe but you would need an xray to know for sure. ...Read more

I hve buzzing in my foot, calf pain and my middle three toes are numb on left side. Any ideas?

I hve buzzing in my foot, calf pain and my middle three toes are numb on left side. Any ideas?

Sounds like nerve: Most likely condition would be a pinched nerve. The nerves that supply the feet stem from nerve branches traveling from the leg. The "pinch" could be from the back at its root, but it an also be locally due to musculature. Another thing to be checked is circulation because if blood flow is hampered to a an area, it can cause pain and reduce function in the nerves. Get checked properly. ...Read more
