Nerves irritated: The nerves in the foot are being compressed. The fact that you mention the veins stand out means they are probably swollen (engorged) and can compress. Get checked. An ultrasound may be ordered to check the blood flow to the legs. Consider having your back checked too. Nerves in the feet stem from there and changes in back position can sometimes contribute to pain distally in the feet. ...Read more

I have pain on the top of my left foot in the muscle areas of the foot toward the small toe about half of the foot

Like: Like with no many questions asked here, there is too little information to give you a proper answer or guide you in the right direction. How long has this pain been present? Was there an injury? Did it start suddenly or slowly? Is there redness, heat, swelling? Have you tried taking anything, and if so, what, and did it help? So either re-post your question with more detail if you like, or do the obvious, which is visit your friendly podiatrist, where you're more likely to get a much better idea of what's going on down there than you ever possibly could here in avvo-land. ...Read more

What would cause sudden pain and swelling on the top of left foot and ankle, no known injury and no heart prob.

Two causes that come: To my mind, without any injury (fall or something heavy falling on the foot or ankle) are Gout or Pseudogout. Others include maybe an insect bite. See your PCP to have a blood test and even some fluid removed from the swollen part might provide an answer (Dx). ...Read more

Causes of pain may include: trauma (fracture, sprain, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), musculoskeletal or biomechanical abnormality and neurologic conditions (neuropathy). ...Read more

Without: Without more specifics, it's hard to give a specific answer, but based on the information you provided, here are my thoughts: since you pointed out you drove a manual and the pain is in your left foot (used for the clutch), and given that you were probably doing a lot of shifting on that dirt road (sounds like fun!), you could have some kind of overuse syndrome or a tendonitis (since so many tendons connect leg muscles to foot muscles). Try resting it and ice massages and some advil (ibuprofen) for 24 hours. (the best way to use an ice massage is to break up some ice in a zip-lock bag and rub it up and down the sore areas for 2-3 minutes, wait 10 minutes and repeat.) and as long as you mentioned you were in a desert, there is always the remote thought that you were bitten by one of those desert things survivorman is always munching on. Did you step out of the vehicle or remove your shoes at any time? If you really were bitten, you would most likely see a localized area of redness and swelling, and perhaps even a little bite mark in your skin. I honestly doubt this is the case, but it was worth mentioning. If you don't see any improvement after 24 hours of rest, ice and advil (ibuprofen), it's time to see your doctor and get a real live diagnosis. Feel better and good luck! ...Read more
