From . From what you are describing you might have either a peripheral nerve issue or a vascular issue with your toes. Do your toes and fingers change color? If so, you might have raynauld's phenomenon and should visit your doctor. If not, then it's most like a peripheral nerve issue and you should get a ncv test (nerve conduction velocity test) to check for that. You should also check your vitamin B12 levels. If they are low, that may lead to peripheral neuropathy also. Read more...
Painful . Painful hands/feet with swelling is unlikely due to neuropathy or reynaud's disease. There is no swelling in either of these conditions in most patients. (exception-swelling occurs in reflex sympathetic dystropy which usually follows surgery or injury.) depending on the physical exam and concurrent illnesses, the differential changes. With joint swelling, consider psoriatic or autoimmune arthitities (rhematoid, lupus) edema of the soft tissues without joint swelling, consider low thyroid, low albumen level, or even a drug reaction. It is helpful to know the age of the patient and whether the swelling is objective (obvious to an observer) or only subjective (feels swollen to the patient but isn't obvious to the observer).

I stubbed my big toe on a door. I have rings of dark bruising around the joints, light bruising across the top of my foot, and mild swelling. Broken?

Hard to tell. It is difficult to tell if a bone is broken without an xray. It can swell and feel quite painful just from a bad bruise. if it is very swollen and bruised and if it is painful to touch over any part of the bone then you may want to get an xray. If you do not get one right away and it is getting better then it is probably not broken. If the pain gets worse or is not going away, then xray is needed. Read more...

My feet are swelling skin is dieing breaking open I thought it was athetics foot but there is a patch on the bottom it is round this is very pain full

You . You should definitely go and see a podiatrist right away. What you probably have is an infection and or an abscess on the bottom of your foot. If you do not go and visit a podiatrist, this infection may get worse and ytour foot will swell even more. What the doctor will need to do is to make an incision and drain all the pus from your abscess. After that, you he or she will clean the wound and dress it with a topical antibiotic ointment such as bactroban (mupirocin). You will most likely need to take some oral antibiotics as well. But whatever you do, don't just wait thinking it will resolve. It's better to go and visit a specialist than waiting. Read more...
