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

Depends

Extremity-lower-foot-big_toe
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.

Dr. Marybeth Crane answered:

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

Bones
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

Psychological_stress
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

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

Mri
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.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

I have severe on side of left foot and underneath for past two weeks two X-rays show nothing any ideas?

Plantar fasciitis?

Physical_exam
It is likely that you have plantar fasciitis--inflammation of the ligament of your arch; toward the back-end of it. Typically Xray will not show, but a good history and physical exam by your doc will provide the diagnosis. Use good arch support, good stretching of the arch, and motrin/eleve for couple weeks. If not better, consult your doc. Good luck

I have severe on side of left foot and underneath for past six weeks two X-rays show nothing any ideas it is worse after I have exercised on it?

Side of foot pain

Open-uri20120704-7740-1bp0v8w
There are a multitude of conditions , that can cause this pain, tendonitis, stress fracture, entrapped nerves, muscle trauma, capsulitis, etc... and X-rays will not reveal any of these....see a specialist. Further testing such as an MRI or ultrasound may help.

Dr. Thomas Inwood answered:

I have pain in the fourth toe of my left foot, it feels broken when I walk alot or wear tighter shoes. It feels numb without shoes on. I did x-rays and MRI and Morton's neuroma was ruled out. Help?

Numb

Pain
A back problem cannot be ruled out , but an orthotic may help here. See your podiatrist - there is no substitute for hands evaluation.

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

Stings
Ligamentous injury or reflex sympathetic dystrophy because of the history of trauma may be present. An MRI will help show these pathologiea . It is likely your pain is unrelated but a good physical exam and history are key. An orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist would help

pain in my left ankle inner bone and travels under my foot throbbing pain making it hard for me to walk u coldness x-ray and blood tests done nothin?

Plantar Fasciitis?

Ankle
If the pain is worse in the morning, making it difficult to walk, and is better after walking on it awhile or stretching out your calves, it might be plantar fasciitis. If you are a runner or participate in sports that require running or jumping, such as basketball, volleyball, or tennis, then plantar fasciitis is a good bet. Check with your orthopedic surgeon to make sure it isn't something worse

I was playing soccer and a guy stepped on my foot. My left big toe now has like a clicking sound when I twist it. An X-ray has revealed no broken bone?

You may

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Have a soft tissue injury, like a torn extensor hood apparatus, tissue which holds the tendon down and so you may be hearing the extensor tendon moving out of place. A dynamic ultrasound or MRI can confirm diagnosis.
