Why does my foot swell randomly? I use ice packs/it swells more. Neuropathy or arthritis? Foot hurts every day after slight sprain 4 years ago.

Complex question: You do need to see a specialist, likely a podiatrist.

Elevate your feet above heart level for 10-20 minutes 3x a day every day, if possible. Good luck! ...Read more

I am not 60 i'm 18 and the back of my ankle hurts so bad when i point on my toes or rotate. It doesn't hurt when i walk.?

What is Cause?: Did you injure recently or have an old injury? I see many people with ankle pain long after an injury because they did not have the proper rehabilitation. Restoration of range of motion, strength and propriocepton (balance sense) must be restored after an injury. Physical therapy would help. If no injury then see your doctor to make sure you do not have any arthritis. ...Read more

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

Exercise : On the surface, what you are describing maybe as simple as patellofemoral syndrome. Females are much more commonly affected due to the geometry of the pelvis and how it affects the tracking of the knee cap when you move. I would ofcourse see a physician to be sure, but start with exercise. ...Read more

Transient weakness: Temporary reduced muscle strength and shakiness can follow prolonged overuse of those muscles and this isn't necessarily a serious issue if you don't develop weakness with normal but somewhat strenuous exertion. The difference is the very prolonged muscular overuse often in ways you're not accustomed to. If you have further concerns, consult your physician or a neurologist for evaluation. ...Read more
