I have pain on pinkie side of foot, bruising on top of foot and pain in the arch of foot. No known injury. Pain is worst in the morning. What should I do?
Bruises, or ecchymoses, are a discoloration and tenderness of the skin or mucous membranes due to the leakage of blood from an injured blood vessel into the tissues. Pupura refers to bruising as the result of a disease condition. A very small bruise is called a petechia. These often appear as many tiny red dots clustered together, and could ...Read more

Pain near toes for 4weeks,now small boney lump on top of foot.fuzzy feeling in toes.could this be a fracture? No swelling, little bruising.
Ganglion cyst?: Sounds like this could be a ganglion cyst (fluid filled bump). Does it move around? Could be interfering with a nerve causing the "fuzzy" feeling in the toes. Usually there is no bruising with a ganglion unless the cause was trauma. This should be checked out by your physician. You can never be too cautious about bumps or lumps. ...Read more
Played basketball in awful shoes. Didn't feel pain during game. After had pain on ball of foot and bruise color on top of foot. Can I go for a run?
Bruising = injury: Bruising is the visible sign of underlying bleeding. In the foot, this could be bony bleeding from a fracture, or soft tissue bleeding from a ligament or muscle. An orthopaedic evaluation and likely X-rays is warranted to make the diagnosis and be sure you do not do any further damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Stubbed toe, (beside big toe) few days ago, bruising, min. swelling but hurts when I move it, esp. right on top of foot, could I have fractured it?
Maybe : Only way to tell is with an X-ray. If the toe is still straight, the only thing that is usually done is a splint to the adjacent toe. If the symptoms are bad enough, and/or the toe is deformed, best to have an X-ray. See an orthopedist next week to get this done. Otherwise, need to go to an ER. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Severe ankle sprain 8 days ago. Still can't walk, top of foot numb, bruising severe. How long should take to heal? Can i damage further trying to walk
Ankle sprain: Normal healing of a sprained ankle takes several weeks (on average). If its a chronically sprained ankle with constant pain and instability, it will take longer than a "normal" sprain. Yes, a sprain can get worse. Usually 3-4 weeks of rest, icing, antiinflammatory meds (like advil or motrin), bracing or compressing wraps, with or without physical therapy should be normal. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

New sandals wore to tight across boney top of foot. Next morning had sharp pain in bare foot, puffy vein, itching then a bruise. This from shoes?worry
Why Worry.: It certainly sounds like it is. Not to worry. The shoe has put some stress on the soft tissues of the foot. The tissues have responded accordingly and now need time to repair. Rest the foot as much as possible, try not to put too much shoe pressure on the sore spot. Applying some ice to the area may help as well as taking some NSAIDS. If things don't improve in a couple of days, see a doctor. ...Read more
