Why do my feet turn blue/purple while sitting? I have no pain, when i stand up the color returns .

Vascular related: It is plausible that when you stand and walk the musculature system helps blood flow back thru the venous network but when you sit the blood pools in the feet letting it turn the color of venous blood when it pools. It is worth checking out with a vascular doctor. There may not be much to do for it, but it should be checked out anyway. ...Read more

I would recommend seeing primary care doctor, interventional spine doctor and/or spine surgeon to determine best treatment. Treatment may include rest, anti-inflammatories, brace, physical therapy, steroid injections and surgery. Good luck! ...Read more

The day after I drink alchohol, my knees feel numb. Like when  your feet fall asleep. It's aggrevated when II strech my legs out. What does mean?

Dehydration: Alcohol intake as a drug, causes dehydratiton and causes your electrolytes to be imbalanced. As a result, the loss of water causes the potassium to increase in your system, which can cause increased calcium, and thus cause Lactic Acid to build in the muscles. Decrease your alcohol intake and increase water. Continue to stretch and exercise. Slow the drinking down! ...Read more

If you check your legs for swelling and elevate the legs , pain should be better. Please be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Different toe Box.: So let me see. The outside of the big toes and the outside of the little toes, both hurt and are a little red. The first place I would be looking for a cause is your shoes. The areas in question are the areas that that receive the most pressure from shoes that are not fitting your foot right. Red dry looking and aching are the warning signs of ingrown toenails, or at least inflamed nail borders. ...Read more

Should i take my son to the doctors? Two days ago my 20month old son got his toes hurt bad we took him to the ER and he had a procedure called repair nail bed foot on two toes on his right foot he now has to wear a cast going up his whole leg and foot but

It : It sounds like he had some sort of procedure for a toenail on 2 toes, if i'm reading your question correctly (help us help you by using punctuation). If this is correct, bleeding is normal, and they should have warned you about it. But now, at 2 days, there shouldn't be any new blood. If he's currently bleeding, then my answer is yes, take him back to the er. If it's old, dry blood on the bandage, there is no need to panic. But i assume you have a follow-up appointment to check on this in the next few days, right? ...Read more

My toes hurt sometimes.  When i take an ivprofen the pain goes  away.  Any suggestions?

The good news is: You figured out to get rid of the pain. So, something is wrong. Which toe? Did you injure it? Is it swollen or red? When does it hurt? Does it hurt both in and out of shoes? The suggestion would be to see a podiatrist and let them take x-rays for starters. ...Read more

Why do the sides of my big toes hurt when i run?

Side of big toe hurt: The side of the big toe (hallux) hurts when one runs when the toe grips the ground during the running cycle. The hallux does this before propulsion (next phase of the gait cycle). As it grips the ground, the medial side of the toe usually abuts the ground, sustaining friction. As this occurs repeatedly, the medial side of the toe would hurt and/or develop a callus (aka pinch callus) or blister. ...Read more

Little toe pain?

Little toe pain?

Location of pain: Would be helpful. Often, if on the outside it is caused by a hammertoe, which will leave you with a corn or little area of inflammation known as a bursitis. If on the inside, you can have a soft corn caused by the 5th toe rubbing against the 4th. If you banged it in the middle of the night going to the bathroom you may have fractured it. A foot doc can help no matter the cause. ...Read more
