Random crippling sharp pain in my heel, swelling and bruising of the spongy skin nearby. Can stand on toes but not put pressure on heel standing. ?

Don't test it.: It is not all that uncommon for heels to hurt in what can be described as sharp pain. The swelling and bruising put your condition in a very different light though. Until you have your heel examined professionally, it is probably best to stay off the foot. A lot can probably be gleaned from the history of the events leading up to the symptoms. An x-ray or possibly an mri may be necessary. ...Read more

Toes on 1foot go red, numb, hot and tingly when standing in the afternoon. I have slipped disc L4/L5. Also have callous on bottom of foot. ?

Unrelated: Slipped disc at L4/5 can cause numb and tingly toes is the disc is compressing a nerve. It does not cause red and hot toes. A slipped disc compressing a nerve also tends to cause radiating pain, numbness and tingling and not typically only symptoms in the toes only. Callouses on the bottom of foot is certainly not related to the slipped disc at L4/5. ...Read more

Toes on left foot go red when standing in warm weather. Goes away when elevated. Also middle toes tingle.2cm callous on foot near toes

Vascular issue: This is not completely clear. This sounds vascular, and I suspect more likely arterial or venous. Your description does not help clarify the distinction. Things to consider is the fact that you're on estrogen, which can have vascular affects and can't even come what times, but I'm not ready to make that diagnosis. You can ask your position whether this can be related to your Crohn's or the therapy ...Read more
