Painful bruises under toe nails, nerve pain. History of anemia, Tibial nerve surgery and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Hi, I recently had Posterior Tibial Nerve Decompression surgery on my left foot Nov. 2011 and on my right foot May 2012 for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome . I ve recently developed sudden painful bruises under both big toenails and was wondering if I should have any concern. I still have a lot of nerve pain as they regenerate and recovery from the surgeries will still take another year. I haven t been wearing tight fitting, closed toe shoes and did not stub or drop anything on these two toes. I haven t increased any activity on my feet either. I do have slight anemia due to folic acid and vitamin b deficiencies. Thanks, Katie

I would be pleased to answer your question .

Since you have had bruises under the toe nails on both the sides , it might be due to pressure of tight fitting closed shoes. The deficiency of vitamins can result in easy bruising.

There is nothing to worry however it would be important to show it to the doctor.

Thanks and take care
