I have had for some years a corn or something on my fourth toe on the ball of the toe, which has caused me to walk on my flat foot *that something so small could cause so much pain!), or on my foot flat. This in turn has swiveled the knee inwards so the leg now seems to bend inwards at the knee. Whether this has anything to do with it I dont know. The pain is sharp at the knee, and the joint seems stiff. The pain is mainly on the outside front and also on the inner front of the knee joint, and hurts with walking, where the top of the foot hurts also (lifting the foot. The act of (while_taking off the shoe provokes the same pain.

To complicate things I have PD amd DBS treatment for it, and the PD may have contributed towards the twisting of the leg. TO me the pain on the top of the foot that comes while lifting the foot to talk might help in diagnosing, but I am not a doctor, My doc says take a painkiller, but the pain does not go away except with bed rest - as long as that lasts

Brief Answer:
3 possibilities

Detailed Answer:
There are a couple of possibilities.
1. The abnormal posture as you mentioned, may cause trouble. It would need removal of the corn, a relatively small procedure. And subsequent physiotherapy.
2. It may be plantar fascitis. There fore you have the pain on starting to step. Agin needs physiotherapy.
3. May be starting of arthritis. Will need x rays to confirm, Thereafter we can give medicines and suggest physiotherapy in accordance

Please let me know the x ray report
Bets of luck

Several days ago I turned my right ankle when I stepped in a hole. It rolled to the outside. Some pain but not really bad. No swelling, no discoloration. I have had a sprained ankle and it is not like that. It does not hurt at all when I am sitting or laying down. When I walk more than 15-20 steps it hurts. The first few steps don't hurt but the last 2 or three are really bad. What is this?

I badly sprained my ankle on Sunday. It had an X-ray and he said it wasn't broken. I have grade 2 ligament damage. I have been trying to exercise it as advised. Everytime I walk on it, I feel sick. My gate is improving slowly but is still very limited. I have bruising and swelling all over my foot and ankle but also halfway up my shin. Is feeling so sick normal?

I twisted my left ankle 16 days ago. On lateral radiographs I have an 8mm long chip fracture of the proximal/dorsal aspect of my navicular bone (fracture line enters the talonavicular joint) that is rotated 90 degrees proximally. The orthopedic surgeon wants to remove it to "prevent arthritis" but all the references I can find online recommend conservative management. I have been staying off of the foot for the past two weeks but the NP put me into a walking air cast boot yesterday and recommended partial weightbearing. My foot is not painful when nonweightbearing but I do feel tingling on the bottom of my foot when I bear a small amount of weight. I also have a lateral collateral ligament sprain. My foot swelling is mild to moderate.

1) Is removal of navicular chip fracture fragments common/indicated?
2) Is walking or immobilization better?
