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

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

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

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

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

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

Side of foot pain: 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. ...Read more

ER/Urgent Care: If the pain is that severe, than I would recommend going to an ER or urgent care center and having the xray at least done. You dont mention if there was an injury, but if there was iit could be a fracture. ...Read more
