What's a healthy body fat percentage for a mid 30 year old 5 foot 11" and weighs 150lbs?

You decide: "ideal weight" is subscience and entertainment at best, disinformation at worst. Your ideal weight is whatever looks and feels right to you and leaves you able to compete effectively with your peers at the sports you enjoy. The olympic track team is "underweight"; ultra-fit linebackers "obese". Hit the gym / playing field hard, eat sensibly & let your body find its own best weight. ...Read more

Stress on bone.: It sounds like you may be exhibiting a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal. Probably best to have the foot examined to remove all doubt. You might need a special boot to help stabilize the bone. There could be other possibilities, but all may require resting the foot, so why not with a boot. ...Read more

I have pain on the mid area side of my foot when I squeeze it and sometimes it hurts to talk on it. Could u tell what you think it wrong with my foot.

Strain on the area: I'm imagining that you are talking about the little toe side of the foot. The area you are referencing to is the metatarsal shaft. It is quite possible that you are baring excessive weight on this area. Consider what shoes you are wearing. Examine the wear patterns in your shoes. This may hold your answer. If there is swelling or continued symptoms, you may want to consider an X-Ray. ...Read more

Nerve symptoms: If you walked alot and played in tight fitting shoes, it's possible that the nerves in the feet were significantly impinged or irritated. As long as the symptoms clear up and don't recur, you should have no permanent neuropathy. For persistent symptoms an exam by your physician is recommended. ...Read more

What did my test results mean? Had X-ray of foot taken and unsure of results. What does "significant degenerative changes at mid foot", osteopenia and vascular calification mean? I have lived several years in pain and managed to work but, I feel my days

"Significant: "significant degenerative changes at mid foot"- this means that there are changes consistent with arthritis typically from age or an old injury.
Osteopenia- is basically weak or brittle bonse due to insufficient calcification, a decalcified bone can be seen on x-ray. Lastly, vascular calcification is calcium deposits seen in the vessels of the foot, this can also be age related as well.
Your doctor should go over these results in detail with you in detail, as well as a treatment plan, which will likely include calcium, vit d, and possibly a steroid injection for your severe foot pain.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Hate those doors.: Lets see what the foot is like tomorrow. Soft tissue damage could be the real issue. Use the RICE principle and rest it. If you feel that there is something more serious going on, then there probably is. Use your instincts and have it examined if the foot develops increasing signs of a more serious injury. ...Read more

Left foot pain intermittently for 2 1/2months in my mid foot around the 4th metatarsal. It's a deep aching feeling, sometimes sharp. Not relieved w RICE?

Meet Dr. Morton.: Rice, when used appropriately, can help to minimize the acuteness of an injury and speed the recovery process. It could be that your condition is not one of those conditions. A sometimes deep aching and sometimes sharp pain in the 4th metatarsal region is classic for a neurofibroma. Some more possibilities are also possible. This is easily verified by a foot specialist. Treatment can vary. ...Read more

When I stand for some time or do some effort, my feet and hands turn tomato red and warm. People keep asking me wuts wrong/ mid twenties healthy?

Varies: I would definitely recommend a good general medical check up just to make sure things like your blood pressure are ok. Some people will have a histamine response to increased physical activity and can cause similar symptoms. This can often respond to simple conditioning. Again, I would begin with a medical checkup. ...Read more
