Common problem: You have poor body mechanics and your musculature need retraining. I imagine you have abused your back. Check with your family physician and get a referral to a physiotherapist. You will be amazed at the positive change. ...Read more

I accidentally kicked a bed post with my left foot. It's bruised and hurts a lot. Need an x-ray?

I accidentally kicked a bed post with my left foot. It's bruised and hurts a lot. Need an x-ray?

Depends: If the bruising and pain are limited to the toes, then probably not. Most toe fractures are treated with a hard soled shoe. If there is obvious deformity of the toes, get it checked out. It the pain and bruising extends into the main portion of the foot, then yes, see a doctor. Finally, if there is any doubt, get it checked out. Sometimes the best thing doctors provide is peace of mind. ...Read more

Get more studies: You could possibly have a stress fracture that may not show up on an xray. Other explanations include possible mild arthritis, nerve injury, inflammation of a joint or tendon. The location of your pain may guide your physician in determining the problem. Nevertheless, an MRI can be helpful to diagnose your problem. Please see an orthopedist. ...Read more

I have my left foot swollen for about 6 months no apparently reason. X-ray, nuclear test, doppler and finally MRI doesn't show anything. Need help!

I have my left foot swollen for about 6 months no apparently reason. X-ray, nuclear test, doppler and finally MRI doesn't show anything.  Need help!

Unilateral foot : Swelling? I assume it is not painful. It could be lymphedema, caused by anything that interrupts lymph drainage from the foot. If you are diabetic, you could have decreased sensation in the foot and traumatize it repeatedly without knowing, condition called charcot's foot. But not likely with normal mri, which is a very accurate imaging test. I am stumped, sorry. ...Read more

For 12 months it hurts to walk or bare a lot of weight on left foot. X-ray shows torn ligaments a bit of bone chipped on crutches. What now?

For 12 months it hurts to walk or bare a lot of weight on left foot. X-ray shows torn ligaments a bit of bone chipped on crutches. What now?

Rest: Torn ligaments and chipped bone usually takes a good 6-8 weeks of rest to calm down. Then physical therapy and perhaps an orthotic. If rest doesn't do it then surgery may be necessary to relieve symptoms. Go over your MRI with a foot and ankle surgeon for more specific treatment plan. ...Read more

Pressed my left foot to hard on a peddle felt something crunch been in pain ever since, had X-ray doctor said i, ve got arthritus and live with it. I feel a pad underneath foot and cannot walk.

Pressed my left foot to hard on a peddle felt something crunch been in pain ever since, had X-ray doctor said i, ve got arthritus and live with it. I feel a pad underneath foot and cannot walk.

Best to be seen: If you cannot walk after having this happen, I suggest being seen again. It is possible that you have a fracture that cannot be seen on a plain xray. It is not uncommon to find a fracture on an MRI that cannot be seen on plain xray. Hearing a crunch sound and not being able to walk are good clues of a possible fracture. I suggest elevation, rest, and crutches for now to prevent weight bearing. ...Read more

Xray result saying that I have a 2mm calcification  (soft tissue swelling) overlying the dorsum of my left foot possibly represent phlebolith. Meaning?

Phlebolith: is a tiny bruise or bleeding spot that has healed and over time became hard as a rock ("litho"). It is mineralized and most often contains traces of calcium, magnesium and other minerals. These phleboliths most often will not change or go away, and remains as a small nuisance. If it causes problems, then see a foot surgeon. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Had car accident 3 yrs ago left with bad sting pain on left side of foot, had X-ray nothing showed any suggestions thanks?

MRI: Plain x-ray gives good diagnostic information about bones but for more subtle issues like ligaments, MRI is a better imaging type. Keeping an open mind about the diagnosis is important. This could be nerve-related e.g. reflex sympathetic dystrophy or referred pain from your lower back. if your GP has not found an answer then seeking a review from an orthopaedic surgeon may be warranted. ...Read more

Injury: Although initial x-rays can be seen as "normal", if pain and swelling continue there may be pathology still present. There could be ligament disruption or bone contusion not seen on x-rays. Also swelling in tendons or joint inflammation may also be present but not seen on x-ray. ...Read more
