The origin of the pain could be your foot. ...Read more

Yes: A total knee resurfaces the parts of the knee that rub together. Instead of having worn out cartilage (chondromalacia) or bone rubbing together, you would have artificial surfaces of metal and polyethylene rubbing together. As these materials have no nerve endings, there is no pain created where they are in contact. The worn areas of cartilage are replaced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ankle sprain 8 months ago. Till now, mild chronic ptt pain at inner ankle. Seen 3 orthopaedists, custom insoles, physio, nothing works. Who can help?
Need more work up: At this point i would see a rheumatologist. The orthopedic work up is failing to find a source for the chronic pain. Gout would be higher up on the list and may be missed by the typical mechanical / structural examination initially done by orthopedics. Gout can present after mild trauma. There may be other types of chronic inflammation. I would see a specialist now. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
4 weeks post Grade 2/3 High ankle sprain, still on crutches unable to bear weight,Does this seem normal? already received MRI and did extensive damage
Normal: Sprain are actually harder and longer to heal than fractures. Sprains are ruptured muscle fibers that bleed into the belly of the sprained muscle and cause swelling and pain. The problem is that in order to heal, the muscle can't be totally immobilized as can a bone (i.e. via cast or fixation). It will take time. ...Read more
What is worse: an ankle sprain, tendon tear or ligament tear? I cant walk after 2 weeks on "sprained ankle" and am scared of diagnosis
See your doctor: An ankle sprain is graded on severity and symptoms. The inability to walk two weeks after an ankle sprain is concerning. Even in mild sprains, you do tear part of the ligament. In more severe sprains, more of the ligament is torn. It's possible you could have injured more than one ligament, the cartilage, or the bone which is not allowing you to walk. I recommend you see your doctor right away ...Read more
