I hit ankle two weeks ago still swollen and painful now my little toe on same side is starting to feel numb what is wrong with ankle and toe?

Hit ankle: The lateral sural cutaneous nerve passes the ankle and apparently you may have damaged that nerve. It can supply sensation to your little toe. The more your ankle swells, the more pressure on that nerve, the number your little toe. Diagnostic ultrasound (dus) or MRI testing might help to visualize damaged nerve tissue. Read more

Bruising ; swelling: Usually with a break, there is bleeding from the bone which leads to swelling and bruising to the toe and surrounding area. This is not always the case, but when I see this, I always take an x-ray to see. There is some degree of pain when the toe is moved at the site of the injury. Read more

Change Shoes.: Hemochromatosis does have a link with arthritis and I can see why you may have concern as to it's link with you immediate problem, but in your case, I don't think so. Your classic symptoms of an intact inflammatory response, is engaged "at the end of the day". So something is causing the problem at the beginning of the day and fulminating as the day progresses. One thing fits the bill, Shoes. Read more

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Dropped glass on my foot & a piece of it made a small puncture. Swollen vein & painful. Ice & elevated but goes back when I stand up. What do I do?

Inflammation: Will certainly occur with an injury. Ice early, elevation then warmth later. The problem is that this presupposes that the injury Stopped occurring. If there is continuing injury, it's going to stay inflamed. Infection OR a retained shard of glass will keep the area inflamed until it is treated. Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health Read more

What reasons are there for long term swollen, painful, discoloured toes?

DECREASED blood flow: You may have decreased flow! And needs to be checked soon. You may have a blockage in a large vessel in your leg (called p.A.D. Or peripheral vascular disease). Another cause in smokers is buergers syndrome (thromboangiitis obliterans) is a disease in which blood vessels of the both feet become blocked. Symptoms: pain cold, pale, red, or bluish toes.

Both of my little toes are red and swollen is there anything at home I can do?

Both of my little toes are red and swollen is there anything at home I can do?

Shoes or Toes.: The first thing to do is find the cause of the redness and swelling. Since it involves both little toes, my first guess is that your shoes have something to do with it. Of course, the other way to look at it is that your toes are to big. The solution is to change the style of the shoes or change the style of the toes. I go for a serious reconsideration in shoe style and fit. Read more
