What causes swollen feet n purple on bottom for a 3 week old with an arch in mouth n possible abnormal thyroid ?

Needs evaluation: A first thought would be in infant female with Turner syndrome. The purple bottom is incidental to normal circulation shift at that age, the swollen feet is a common presentation of Turner syndrome as would be the arched palate.

If : If all you've had done are blood tests and an ultrasound of the heart and liver, i'd say you still have a way to go before your doctor should give up. It's also a little unusual for your face to be swollen. I would look into cushing's disease as a possible cause. Perhaps a second opinion is in order? ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. You indicated that you gained 30 pounds in one week - usually that rapid a weight gain is due to fluid retention. The swelling of your lower extremities helps to support that idea. I don't know if the blood work, and ultrasounds were done before or after that weight gain. Even if a definitive cause is not known, your doctor should be able to help diuress some of that fluid (if that is infact what it is). I am a psychiatrist, so i can not provide you with a second opinion. However, if you had not yet had that level of weight gain, please get this reassessed by your provider. Also ask about help to reduce the fluid that is being retained in your lower extremities. In the meantime, you may wish to sit with your legs propped up, so that you won't have so much gravitational pull on the fluids. ...Read more

I have foot pain in my right foot inner on the side, it has swollen up and hurts to massage it.  My upper back on the right around neck also hurts. ?

Bone or tendon prob: Most common cause of medial foot pain and swelling is either tendonitis or partial tear of the posterior tibial tendon. Classically it hurts when you raise up on your toes. In the same area u could have a symptomatic accessory navicular bone. U need to be examined, xrayeed +- MRI to tell what problem is. The back/neck pain is probably unrelated but could be part of an inflammatory arthritis pictur. ...Read more

Doesn't sound good: Have you thought of going to see a medical doctor who can sort out what your problem might be? It would be particularly irresponsible, in my opinion, for any of us here to try and make a diagnosis of your problem, let alone, suggest some form of treatment. It would also seem to me, that you deserve to be evaluated by a physician in person. Do not take your health problems lightly and seek help. ...Read more
