What could be wrong with my foot? 2months ago i drove my jeep, a manual, on a jeep trail in the desert. The next morning i awoke with swelling, pain, redness to the top of my left foot. It has been this way since, just not as severe. The pain is mostly ra

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 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, it's time to see your doctor and get a real live diagnosis. Feel better and good luck! ...Read more

Needs work up: Diagnosis of autoimmune arthritis (such as RA) includes blood work, clinical exam, and if nec. a variety of imaging. See your Dr. From a radiology viewpoint, there are many tools. First and foremost are plain films. Quantitative dynamic MRI may actually be good for RA prognosis as well as early response to treatment.

Observe: Observe for spreading redness, increased pain or tenderness, or swelling of the foot. These symptoms,if they develop, should be promptly seen by your physician for evaluation and treatment as infection of the bite would then be likely. In view of being somewhat immunocompromised, this is most important. ...Read more
