What causes forefoot pain and swelling otherwise healthy only one foot previous bunion surgery with pin?

Pain: Unfortunately, we need a bit more info. Such as when the surgery was done etc. Also, is the pain on the bunion surgery foot? Even if that is yes, there are a lot of causes of this pain and transfer pain is just one. See your podiatrist or treating physician for help.

I have a vibrating sensation at just one point in the bottom of my left foot. The feeling comes and goes. No pain or swelling. Age : 24, healthy male.

I have a vibrating sensation at just one point in the bottom of my left foot. The feeling comes and goes. No pain or swelling. Age : 24, healthy male.

Vibration in foot: Hello~ I am sure you are thinking that this is some kind of long tract cerebellar symptom. If it were, it would usually appear with other cerebellar signs of ataxia and asterixis. If you can pinpoint it to one place you will probably find a little lump signifying a NEUROMA. This can easily be removed. Not unreasonable to see your doc for this thanks

Swelling & pain on top of one foot. Third week. May have been caused by bad dress shoes, but unsure. Any advice I would be deeply grateful for.

Swelling & pain on top of one foot. Third week. May have been caused by bad dress shoes, but unsure. Any advice I would be deeply grateful for.

Podiatrist: Best to see the expert on this - the Podiatrist. One episode of bad dress shoe should not result in 3 weeks of swelling/pain, unless you caused some significant damage. Possible bruising/vessel damage and nerve impingement which could take a time to resolve, but best to see the expert. Good Luck.

Warm soaks!!: The stinger will eventually dissolve or wash out with warm soaks! Do NOT try to remove it yourself!! Prevent infection by applying OTC antibacterial ointment! Hope this helps Dr Z

Swelling of one leg from knee to foot? Can it be a clot?

Swelling of one leg from knee to foot? Can it be a clot?

Yes-go to ER ASAP: Your description is very suspicious for a blood clot called a deep venous thrombosis (dvt). You should go to the er asap for evaluation. The clots can move or form in your lung (s) becoming what is called a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal (can kill you). Get it checked out now--this may be a potentially life threatening emergency.

I have minor swelling in one calf mainly in the area right slightly below the knee. No apparent swelling in ankles or feet. No pain or redness.

I have minor swelling in one calf mainly in the area right slightly below the knee. No apparent swelling in ankles or feet. No pain or redness.

Swelling Causes: Swelling behind the knee could be a strain or ligament injury. It could be phlebitis. It could also be a cyst called a Baker's cyst. The best course would be to see your family doctor, orthopedist or podiatrist for evaluation. A physical exam and possibly X-rays or an MRI can answer your questions.

I had a sudden onset of one leg, ankle and foot swelling. It is causing pain and a loss of flexibility in the ankle. No injury, long trips or infec.

Not debatable...: Whether or not you presently have these symptoms are had them in the past, an obvious concern is a possible blood clot. This dangerous condition can happen without a clear history of trauma, prolonged inactivity or for that matter, without any apparent reason at all. Regardless of the actual cause, the goal now is to have it evaluated immediately. Untreated, a DVT can have catastrophic effects.

Can gabapentin for I c cause pain/swelling on area of 3rd-5th toes where toes meet with top of foot, one foot only?

Can gabapentin for I c cause pain/swelling on area of 3rd-5th toes where toes meet with top of foot, one foot only?

Probably not: Gabepentin can cause swelling but not usually that specific of an area. More likely there is another cause like trauma or an infection. I would have the area looked at by your favorite podiatrist.

Can gabapentin for I c cause pain/swelling on area of 3rd-5th toes where toes meet with top of foot, one foot only?

Not usually!: Gabapentine is an effective treatment for neuropathy and other nerve injury. Swelling in the feet is a possible side effect but pain and swelling in a specific area would more likely be something else. It could be an injury, arthritis, hammertoes or stress fracture. You need an evaluation by a medical professional..
