Varies : There are multiple potential causes, primarily divided into soft tissue verse bone causes. Examples of soft tissue problems would be a tendonitis of the anterior tibialis muscle. From a bone perspective, a tarsal coalition or a accessory bone in that area can cause symptoms. A detailed exam and appropriate studies will usually determine the cause. ...Read more
My wood rifle landed on the top arch of my foot when I did a toss. My three middle toes, the side of my foot, and ankle are all heavily bruised. Why?
Shoulder Arms.: When the rifle wacked the foot, it undoubtedly broke numerous blood vessels, and who knows what else. The blood poured from the blood vessels and leaked into the layers between the skin. The trapped blood then begins to travel under the skin to distant areas of the foot. The end result is that the injury can look much worse than it actually is. For swelling, ice. Later, heat for blood dissipation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Start Now.: By the sound of it, likely a fascia injury and possibly some involvement with the Achilles tendon. These are initially treated in the RICE fashion.(rest, ice, compression and elevation) This will help with the swelling and pain. Avoid bearing weight on the foot until it can be examined and the true extent of the injury can be determined. Use Crutches until you can see a foot and ankle specialist. ...Read more
The past 3 years the ball of my left foot and my big toe hurt (can't bend it to wear closed shoes)?
Hallux rigidus: Very possibly, you have what is termed "hallux rigidus" or a rigidly fixed great toe joint. This is an "wear and tear" type of arthritic condition localized to this specific joint. The inability to bend the great toe will limit your ability to propulse, or push-off, during each step, causing you to often transfer your weight to another part of the foot, in your case, maybe the ball of the foot. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
When I stretch my left leg I get a stinging pain in my heel. I broke my left ankle some years back and pulled the ligaments and tendons in my foot.
Think back...: Although the first thought may be to link the past ankle and foot trauma to your heel pain now. One can never be to sure about these things as there may be a some involvement with your back, specifically, the lower spine. This also could be the true reason for the heel pain. To get to nitty gritty, so to speak, a thorough lower back and leg evaluation is needed. ...Read more

Ankle Sprain: Well you have suffered one of the most common foot and ankle injuries. Certainly you may have some tendon/ligament injury. In addition if the pain is localized and sharp on the outside of the foot, you must have an X-ray taken because there are many other injuries that could occur, on could be a fracture of the base of the 5ht metatarsal called an avulsion fracture (This is quite common) Good Luck ...Read more

Possibly Not Good.: Hearing and feeling a popping sound during elevated activity is not good. Could possibly indicate a partial tear, tear or fracture. If on the outside of the foot, it could indicate a 5th met fracture or peroneii tendon damage. You would be better of starting the RICE protocol and see a specialist for an evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

3 years go=broken ankle & screwes sprained my akle playing tennis in auguet and it's still swollen. Had me in a cast. Is this normal?
Possibly: I think you're saying you had screws placed for a broken ankle 3 years ago, and now you've sprained your ankle last august and it's still swollen. I actually warn my patients that after bad ankle injuries (in your case, 2 of them), the swelling may actually never go away, but as long as your ankle is functional and painless and strong, i would not worry about some persistent swelling. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
